WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- I'm so bummed the Wizards aren't playing in the Orlando summer league. I have a few buddies in the area and would've tried to convince my bosses that my presence there was absolutely necessary. I covered the 2010 summer league, and it became one of my favorite events in the entire world.
The team will be in Las Vegas from July 13th to July 18th. And apparently, aging guards Mo Evans and Roger Mason Jr. will be accompanying assistant coach Sam Cassell in coaching the hodgepodge summer squad.
This isn't terribly unusual. In 2010, Kevin Durant was an assistant coach for the Oklahoma City Thunder, overseeing James Harden's summer development.
Mo Evans: "The Wizards have given me the opportunity to coach the summer league team with Sam and Roger. It will be a great experience."- Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) June 21, 2012
