“The young players that we brought in, they’re not one-and-done kids,” Sheppard said. “There’s guys, the four rookies that we have, Rui, Admiral, we added Justin Robinson, we added Garrison Mathews, they all played for great college coaches, great programs, three-year players minimum. They’re rookies, but by pedigree they’ve accomplished a great deal, so they’re coming in the door, we’re not starting remedial basketball.”
Hachimura accepted an invitation from Ambassador Shinsuke J. Sugiyama, the Japanese ambassador to the U.S., visiting his home in Washington on Friday. Ambassador Sugiyama welcomed Hachimura into his gorgeous home, exchanging pleasantries and sitting down for tea. Hachimura presented the ambassador with a customized Sugiyama Wizards jersey, while Sugiyama and his wife, Yoko, gave Hachimura beautiful flowers. Ambassador Sugiyama offered his home and any assistance to help Hachimura feel comfortable and become a superstar basketball player.
Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura will miss Japan’s final two FIBA World Cup games because of knee discomfort and general fatigue, it was announced. “While everyone had hoped for Rui to finish the World Cup with Team Japan, the Wizards and Japan Basketball believe it is best for Rui to not play the final two games and have a short period of rest before he must start NBA training camp with the Wizards which begins only three weeks from now,” the Japanese Basketball Association said in a statement released through the Wizards.
