For the Wizards to go beyond the second round of the playoffs, where they've lost in six games in the last two seasons, will require key contributors to do a little bit more.
While it's unlikely that everyone in the rotation will magically become a lot better in a major area of weakness, this would be the best-case scenario for the Wizards. We'll go player by player, in no particular order:
The skinny: He's a 6-3 backup PG for John Wall, who no longer has to log as many minutes. Sessions was acquired at the trade deadline for Andre Miller and had his moments. In 28 games in Washington, Sessions posted 7.4 points, 3.1 assists and 2.7 rebounds.
The fix: Shooting. While Sessions can score, he's not always efficient. He shot 41.1% in the games with Washington. He made 40.6% of his three-point shots (13-for-32) which is actually good accuracy. While Sessions is good at getting to the rim, his finishing can be much better, too.
Prospects: Sessions will be entering his ninth season and has always hovered around the lower 40s when it comes to overall shooting. Sessions can get his shot so creating isn't the issue. When Wall went down with a broken left hand and wrist in Game 1 of the East semifinals, Sessions started the next three games and shot a combined 15-for-38 as they lost two of three. If Sessions is not going to be more accurate, he can compensate by creating more for others. But he's a scorer first and maybe a full season with in coach Randy Wittman's system will help settle down. His career-high overall shooting for a full season is 46.6% in 2010-11 with the Cleveland Cavaliers. That's reachable.
