Wizards send big man Chris McCullough to NBA D-League

Two days after making his Wizards debut against the Toronto Raptors, big man Chris McCullough has been sent to the NBA Developmental League, CSN has learned. McCullough is expected to play for the Northern Arizona Suns.

McCullough, 22, was acquired by the Wizards last Wednesday in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets. He came to Washington along with veteran Bojan Bogdanovic for a protected first round pick and bench players Andrew Nicholson and Marcus Thornton.

McCullough is in his second NBA season. He was selected by the Nets 29th overall in the first round of the 2015 draft.

In two seasons, McCullough has appeared in 39 NBA games. He has played in 31 D-League games with averages of 18.1 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. McCullough was a 2016-17 D-League All-Star.

SEE IT: Wizards' Davis Bertans shows off incredible dunks

SEE IT: Wizards' Davis Bertans shows off incredible dunks

From TikTok dances to pushup challenges, this quarantine has everyone at home trying anything on social media to stay entertained. Wizards sharpshooter Davis Bertans is a much simpler man -- old fashioned, if you will. 

So on Thursday morning, he partook in a classic social media hashtag: #ThrowbackThursday. The post featured him soaring through the sky for a vicious putback slam while playing for Saski Baskonia.

He's more than just a shooter, you know? 

In the comments section of his post, Bertans' brother Dairis, who plays overseas for Khimki of the VTB United League and the EuroLeague, provided a bit of a dig at Davis' video saying: "Since we can't be on the court and enjoy doing what we love, I guess everyone is posting throwbacks now?"

To which Davis responded, "#FlashbackFriday tomorrow?"

I guess we'll just have to wait and find out.

Scott Brooks was 'surprised' NBA suspended the season, but commends league for doing the right thing

Scott Brooks was 'surprised' NBA suspended the season, but commends league for doing the right thing

While the world continues to adjust to a new normal in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Wizards head coach Scott Brooks is commending the NBA for doing the right thing in suspending the remainder of the season.

“Never in my craziest dreams I would ever think the NBA would cancel or suspend the season," Brooks said to The Sports Junkies on Tuesday.

The NBA was the first professional sports league to suspend its season after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19 on March 11.

“When Adam [Silver] came out and suspended the season, it opened up a lot of eyes…that this is serious," Brooks said.

Although Brooks never imagined the league suspending the season in any scenario, he commended the NBA Commissioner for making a difficult decision.

“The NBA just doesn’t suspend the season over something very light. It surprised me but it was the right thing to do. I’m proud of being in the NBA, I’m proud of Adam taking the step forward and doing it because obviously it impacts a lot of people," Brooks said.

Since the suspension of the season, Brooks has been continuously checking in on his players via text message.

“The guys are great, they respond back," Brooks said. "They’re like all of us, we’re bored."

While Brooks "hopes" the NBA's suspended season resumes eventually, he knows health and safety is a priority.

“We have to flatten the curve and do our part and I’m glad we’re taking this serious," Brooks said.
