Otto Porter hit his first two shots of the Washington Wizards' Summer League opener against the Golden State Warriors ... and then hit one of his last 13, often disappearing from the offense in an ugly 56-52 loss. Afterwards, multiple people with the Wizards noted that they wanted to see him find ways to be more aggressive. "He's got to be more assertive. He's got to find some of his own offense sometimes on the court. I could run plays for him, get him shots. But if those don't work, now what?" Wizards summer league coach Sam Cassell said. "There are things he's got to do himself. He did it at Georgetown, and he can do it here." Bullets Forever
