Wes Unseld Jr Rumors
Arenas, Butler and Jamison technically reunited the night before. That’s when Arenas came back to Capital One Arena for the first time in years, walking onto the same court where he became a household name. They also had dinner with season ticket holders. “The love has just been unreal, like I’m still averaging about 30 and still the man,” Arenas said. Head coach Wes Unseld Jr. was a young assistant back during the heyday of the ‘Big 3,’ so it was a treat for him to see the three former NBA All-Stars back together again. “There were some laughs and also some tears,” Unseld Jr. said of the reunion.
Unseld Jr. said he went to Gibson because he wanted more aggression on the defensive end. According to Bradley Beal, the Wizards’ coach blasted his team at halftime, using some colorful language to get his point across. He came out of the locker room with some changes in mind. One was giving Gibson some rare playing time, to see if he could light a spark. “It paid off at the right time. Wes made a great adjustment and it helped us win the game,” Kuzma said.
Ava Wallace: Bradley Beal is available for tomorrow vs. OKC after missing 5 games due to covid and then reconditioning. Delon Wright (hamstring) is the only player on the Wizards’ injury report, and Wes Unseld Jr. said at practice today he’s on track to be reevaluated this week.
