Yet another familiar face could be added to Wizards-Celtics rivalry as Thomas Robinson works out for Boston

Yet another familiar face could be added to Wizards-Celtics rivalry as Thomas Robinson works out for Boston

Markieff Morris already has his twin brother Marcus currently playing for the rival Boston Celtics after he was traded there in July. Now there could be another familiar face wearing green.

With their blockbuster deal with Cleveland on the table, the Celtics are weighing their options to fill the roster spots that would open as a result. It appears former fifth overall pick Thomas Robinson could earn one of those jobs.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Robinson worked out for the Celtics recently:

Robinson, 26, played with the Morris twins at Kansas and remains a good friend. Robinson attended Markieff's backback giveaway in Southeast Washington earlier this month wearing a hat from Morris' F.O.E. (Family Over Everything) clothing line. He is currently a free agent after playing last year with the Lakers. 

The Wizards and Celtics have developed a bitter rivalry over the past several seasons, culminating with an eventful playoff series in May. But this offseason key figures that made that rivalry interesting have left like Jae Crowder (if the Cavs deal goes through), Kelly Olynyk, Jonas Jerebko and Avery Bradley. Meanwhile, familiar faces have entered the mix like Marcus Morris and Jayson Tatum, a good friend of Bradley Beal's. Robinson's addition would be yet another reason why the rivalry may be softer this season compared to last.

5 must-see moments from Wizards' win over Pistons, including John Wall's amazing blocks

Here are the best plays or moments from the Washington Wizards' 115-111 win over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.

1. Much of the attention going into any Wizards-Pistons game these days will be on John Wall and Reggie Jackson, as the two have had a mini-rivalry over the years. It was a long night for Jackson, as you'll see throughout this post, and it started with this putback jumper by Wall that left Jackson in the dust:

2. Wall finished with 26 points, 10 assists and two blocks. Both of his blocks were amazing. The first was this one, on Tobias Harris who is a power forward:

3. Wall's 28 points were much quieter than in the season-opener when he was dunking all over everyone. In this game, though, he did have this sick layup on the fastbreak:

4. Bradley Beal was also an offensive standout with 25 points on 9-of-18 shooting. One of his best plays was this and-1 late in the game:

Here's a bonus clip. Beal (25 points) had a few nice crossovers that ended in missed shots. This was one of them:

5. Okay, here's the second Wall block. It was on Jackson and it came at the perfect time. This helped seal the win:
