The Washington Wizards had an awful record last season at 20-46, but did manage to finish the season on a six-game win streak. With new veterans added and a Rookie of the Year candidate in Bradley Beal ready to take off, this team could really make some noise this season.
While the optimism is high for many fans, many important decisions still have to be made for Washington to succeed. They must set a rotation, improve defensively and not throw out the idea of remaining active with transactions.
As it stands, this is a talented team. They have youth, athleticism and a lot of potential with growing players. Veterans like Nene and Emeka Okafor will bring some needed experience to the table making the Wizards a pretty well-rounded team. The playoffs aren't as much of a reach as the last few seasons, but even finishing closer to the 41-41 mark is a huge step forward.
Here are six decisions that Randy Wittman and the Washington Wizards should focus on for a promising season.
