The Washington Wizards entered the Summer League hoping to find new talent. Their roster is led by Johnny Davis, who was the 10th overall pick in the draft.

The keeper is yet to play a standout game in the Summer League, but his potential is beyond doubt.

Davis was brilliant back then with Wisconsin and was named the 2022 Big Ten Player of the Year for his contributions there. The 20-year-old will look to put on a special performance and lead the team to victory in what will likely be a close game against the Pelicans.

The Washington Wizards will need Vernon Carey Jr. and Jordan Schakel to be at their best as well. The Pels have several talented players who will be looking to give their best.

This game is also extremely crucial for the Wizards, as a loss will put them out of contention for the championship game.

Key Player – Jordan Schakel

After going undrafted, Jordan Schakel won the Summer League with the Sacramento Kings last season. He then played with G-League affiliate team Wizards.

Schakel’s stint with the Capital City Go-Go was very brief, but it had a telling impact. The 24-year-old drained 44 3-point shots in the 14 games he played for the team.

The Washington Wizards then signed him to a two-way contract and he has since played four games for them. Schakel will try to make the final roster before the regular season and one way to do that is by playing in the Summer League.

He’s averaging 15.0 PPG so far and will be looking to continue his shine in this game against the New Orleans Pelicans. This encounter is of great importance to the Wizards and if he steps up, the team will definitely have a better chance of winning.

The New Orleans Pelicans have an exciting side to their Summer League campaign. Trey Murphy III is one of the biggest names on the roster, having impressed many with his brilliant performances last season.

In his second season, Murphy will be looking to work on his game and the Summer League presents him with a good opportunity to do so. Apart from him, the Pels will also count on Jared Harper and Tyrique Jones to fight against the Wizards.

After losing one game and winning the other, the Pels need a win in this encounter. Their defense is yet to concede more than 100 points in the tournament and their offense will need to step up this time around.

Key Player – Trey Murphy III

Trey Murphy III is an exceptional talent who was acquired by the New Orleans Pelicans from the Memphis Grizzlies. The 22-year-old played a vital role in Pels’ playoffs last season and his shot was a major asset. Murphy will certainly be looking to get even better for the team next season.

Murphy tends to splurge and is hoping for a good game against the Wizards. His performance will be essential if New Orleans is to earn a win in this game.

Washington Wizards vs New Orleans Pelicans game prediction

The game between wizards and pelicans should be exciting. Both teams need a win to stay in the tournament and will be ready to give their all from the start.
