The Washington Wizards selected Admiral Schofield of Tennessee with the No. 42 pick in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft. Here are five things to know about him...
1. A 6-6, 240-pound forward, Schofield played four years at Tennessee and was a big part of the Volunteers' renaissance under head coach Rick Barnes. He averaged 16.5 points and 6.1 rebounds as a senior.
2. Schofield can stretch the floor. He shot 38.7 percent from three for his career and raised that number every year in school. As a senior, he topped out at 41.8 percent from long range on 4.8 attempts. He shot both at a high percentage and with volume, good signs that will translate to the next level.
3. He is a big, physical forward known for his toughness and defense. He will add an edge to the defensive end, which the Wizards have lacked in recent years. He's built like an NFL outside linebacker, sort of like Marcus Smart or Jae Crowder.
4. Schofield's father, Anthony, is a retired Senior Chief with the U.S. Navy, so that's where the name 'Admiral' comes from. Also, his brother O'Brien played seven seasons in the NFL and won a Super Bowl ring with the Seahawks. Two of his cousins also played in the NFL.
5. Schofield was born in London, England in the same hospital that Princess Diana had Prince William and Prince Harry. He grew up in Zion, Illinois.
