The Full Guide to the 2017-18 Washington Wizards Training Camp

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 16: Bradley Beal /

The Washington Wizards, for the second consecutive year, will hold training camp in Richmond, VA at VCU’s Siegel Center.

Despite no significant free agent signings from the Washington Wizards front office this offseason, they made major moves internally including a contract extension for John Wall and a big payday for Wizards forward Otto Porter.

The four-time All-Star Wall inked a four-year contract extension that will earn him $170 million and keep him in a Washington Wizards uniform until 2023. The contract agreement shows Wall’s devotion to delivering the franchise with their first NBA championship in 39 years.

Wall’s fellow teammate Otto Porter originally signed a four-year deal worth $106 million with the Brooklyn Nets this offseason, but ultimately will stay in D.C. after the Wizards matched the Nets offer sheet.
