The Greensboro Swarm selected Admiral Schofield with the top overall pick in the G-League draft, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium. 

The 23-year-old Schofield, who played college basketball for the Tennessee Volunteers, was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NBA draft by the Philadelphia 76ers but was traded immediately to the Washington Wizards. 

Schofield appeared in 33 games for the Wizards last season, averaging three points per game.

The G-League will host its 2021 season at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando in February. Like the NBA did last season, it will be a bubble environment amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Seventeen teams will participate, with eight teams advancing to a single-elimination postseason.
