Looking for potential roster additions aside, the primary goal for the Washington Wizards' Summer League involved seeing growth from Kelly Oubre Jr.

As far as media members are concerned, mission accomplished.

Oubre, Washington's 2015 first round pick, was named to the All-NBA Summer League second team, the NBA announced.

The small forward led the Wizards in scoring (19.2), rebounding (5.6) and steals (1.8).

More than mere stats, the confident Oubre truly embraced the main man role in his second Las Vegas appearance. He took advantage of his 7-foot-2 wingspan on finishing drives at the basket and defensively by using those long arms to pick pockets. 

Despite improvements, Oubre remains a work in progress. His shot selection was suspect at times and he finished at 37.5 percent from the field including a mere 9 of 36 on 3-pointers. Defensively, Oubre still gambles more than desired, which led to averaging nearly fouls per game and opponents getting past him.

Still, the Wizards should be pleased with his development. Based on the current regular season depth chart, Oubre is poised for a sizeable role on the wing behind starting small forward Otto Porter. Finding consistency while working on those hoops instincts is the 20-year-old's next step.

Here's the entire first and second team. Minnesota's Tyus Jones was named Most Valuable Player. The Timberwolves and Chicago Bulls, who eliminated the Wizards from the Summer League Tournament on Saturday, meet for the championship Monday night.
