Wizards Reportedly More Likely To Part Ways With Jordan Poole Than Making Him A Cornerstone


Jordan Poole has taken on a larger role with the Washington Wizards, assuming a starting role and emerging as a scoring partner for Kyle Kuzma. At just 24 years old and in the first season of his four-year contract, Poole is seen as a key addition for the team.

The young offensive guard has indeed found a new home with the Wizards after experiencing a period of turmoil and a disappointing playoff performance with the Golden State Warriors last season. However, this fresh start for Poole might not last long.

Poole is currently averaging 15.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game on 39.2% shooting from the field. While it may seem like he is just in a slump, the Wizards don’t appear to have full confidence in him in the bigger picture. As Marc Stein’s report indicates, the Wizards are likely to move on from Poole, as team officials do not consider him a cornerstone player for their future.


“My sense, from speaking to various league observers, is that more believe it is the former rather than the latter with Poole in Year 1 of a four-year, $123 million contract.”
