The Wizards host the new-look Grizzlies on Sunday night at Capital One Arena in their third-to-last game before the All-Star break.
Both squads were active around the trade deadline and will look to incorporate their new additions.
The Wizards traded Jordan McRae to the Denver Nuggets for Shabazz Napier. The team then sent Isaiah Thomas to the Los Angeles Clippers for Jerome Robinson in a three-team trade in which the Knicks acquired Moe Harkless and a first-round pick from the Clippers. Forward Marcus Morris was sent to Los Angeles.
The Grizzlies acquired Justise Winslow, Dion Waiters, and James Johnson in a trade with the Miami Heat, sending Andre Iguodala, Jae Crowder, and Solomon Hill to South Beach. Memphis then traded James Johnson to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Gorgui Deng. The Grizzlies also sent Bruno Caboclo to the Rockets in exchange for big-man Jordan Bell.
While both teams are surely getting adjusted to their new rotations, this matchup between two of the NBA's up-and-coming squads is one you do not want to miss.

Ja Morant, G, Grizzlies: Morant has been everything the Grizzlies expected when they selected him second overall in the 2019 NBA Draft out of Murray State.
