Thunder Acquire Schofield, Second-Rounder Krejci From Wizards

NOVEMBER 19: The Thunder also acquired Admiral Schofield from Washington in the deal, which is now official, according to a tweet from the Wizards.

NOVEMBER 18: The Wizards selected guard Vit Krejci with the No. 37 but they’re trading him to the Thunder, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets. Washington will receive the No. 53 pick in this draft plus additional compensation, Ben Standig of The Athletic tweets.

The Wizards used that pick on Michigan State point guard Cassius Winston. Winston led the Spartans to the Final Four as a junior and averaged 18.6 PPG and 5.9 APG as a senior.

The additional competition will be a future second-rounder, David Aldridge of The Athletic tweets.

Krejci of the Czech Republic won’t be able to play in the NBA in the near future. While playing for the Spanish team Casademont Zaragoza, the 20-year-old Krejci suffered an ACL injury that required surgery in early October. He’s a member of the Czech Republic national team and projects as a 6’8” combo guard.

    I think Winston is the better player so good move by the Wizards.

    Krejci i doubt ever plays in the NBA, he will be stashed and forgotten about. Whereas Winston probably has a good summer league, works hard in the offseason and then could end up as a second/third point guard in the roster.

    Playing and learning from Bradley Beal and John Wall I think he could carve out a decent career

      What summer league?
      Thank goodness isn’t any of that this year & the real deal is right around the corner!

        He obviously meant next summer or this winter if they do something different…
