Default Wizards set to begin regular season

Entering the offseason, the Washington Wizards considered two major factors when considering the completion of a roster overhaul: John Wall’s failure to improve significantly in his second professional season and Nene’s positive influence on the team’s remaining young players.

Neither Wall nor Nene will be available when the new-look Wizards are unveiled during Saturday’s home opener against Boston, as both players are dealing with injuries. But the remaining 13 players are eager to make an impression and put the dysfunctional days of being a bottom-feeder behind the franchise.

“Every time you’d see ESPN, we were on the Not Top 10 or something bad's happening. So it’s always negative things coming toward this team,” said rookie Bradley Beal, the No. 3 overall pick in the NBA draft last June. “But I think this year we have a totally different team — a lot of new assets and guys who have great character on top of that. So I think this program is really on the uprise and it’s turning around. We have to prove that and show that out there.”
