Capital City Go-Go Complete Expansion Draft
The Capital City Go-Go have participated in an expansion draft in preparation for their inaugural season in the NBA’s G-league. This is the the first year the Wizards will have an affiliate in the league. The draft allowed the Go-Go to select 14 unprotected players from the other 26 teams in the league.
The following players were selected by the Go-Go:
Savoy Allen, Temple
Quinton Chievous, Hampton
Michael Cobbins, Oklahoma State
Will Cummings, Temple
Alex Davis, Fresno State
Will Davis, UC Irvine
Kellen Dunham, Butler
Duje Dukan, Wisconsin
Alonzo Gee, Alabama
Luke Harangody, Notre Dame
Tyler Harvey, Eastern Washington
Pe’Shon Howard, USC
Vince Hunter, UTEP
Stephen Zimmerman, UNLV
While many of these players you have most likely never heard of and never will hear of again, there are some interesting names on this list that you may recognize.
Alonzo Gee is a former Wizard and while he did not do much for the Wizards, he did carve out a decent role in the NBA for someone who was an undrafted rookie in 2009. He has been on plenty of different teams in his career and will be a good veteran presence in this young locker room.
Luke Harangody is another name you might recognize. Although Harangody has been out of the NBA for about six years, he was the Big East Player of the Year in 2008 for Notre Dame. Harangody is another solid veteran presence and has been playing overseas for a long time.
Pe’Shon Howard is someone who finished his college career at USC but went to Maryland for three years but was just never able to find his groove. Howard will likely not ever get a chance at the NBA but it is interesting to see a former Terp join the team.
Stephen Zimmerman is a seven footer from UNLV and was a five star prospect coming out of high school. Zimmerman’s game resembles that of a modern big man and I am hopeful that he can develop over the next few years and carve out a spot on the Wizards roster.
These 14 players will have the opportunity to join Two-Way contract players Devin Robinson and Jordan Mcrae on the Go-Go roster for their inaugural season.
