The Wizards have to be happy with the way the rookies played for them this season. Nick Young played solid basketball off the bench for the Wizards and he could be in line for a starting job next season if they don’t retain Gilbert Arenas. Young played in 75 games (2 starts) for the Wizards this season and he averaged 15.4 minutes, 7.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. He has a bright future for the Wizards.
Center Oleksiy Pecherov looked a little out of place in the NBA but he could improve with experience. He played in 35 games (0 starts) this season and he averaged 9.1 minutes, 3.6 points, 1.9 rebounds and 0.2 assists per game. He didn’t shoot too well only hitting 35.2% of his shots from the floor. He likely won’t get more minutes until he improves his shooting.
G/F Dominic McGuire didn’t do much this season. He played in 70 games (1 start) for the Wizards this season and he averaged 9.9 minutes, 1.3 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. His shooting was not good either as he only hit 37.9% of his shots from the floor and 43.8% of his free throws.
