Bilal Coulibaly shines for the Washington Wizards as they face a summer of uncertainty

Washington has many questions to resolve heading into this summer, but Bilal Coulibaly does not even remotely enter into those doubts. The number 7 in the 2023 draft has had an exciting rookie season despite the fact that the context was not very good, since the defeats have accumulated and he has also had to experience a change of coach.

Regardless of the circumstances, the 19-year-old French player closed his performance with an average of 8.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 27.2 minutes per night. In addition, he has shot an interesting 34.6 percent in triples. With such a base, he now faces a key summer to grow in his game, something he would like to do by playing for France at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. After entering the shortlist of 19 players, he must now wait to find out if he is on the list definitive 12. In any case, the Wizards are clear that they will help you as much as possible regardless of the context.

«In his head it is clear that this is a very important summer for him. Whether he plays for us or for France, we will be involved, we will be present and we will have a program in place for his growth », comments Will Dawkins, general manager of the capital’s residents.

Jordan Poole, Marvin Bagley III, Kyle Kuzma… The Wizards have many players under contract for the 2024-25 season, but practically none of them have their continuity assured. There will be weeks of making many decisions and trying to find a direction that for now is far from clear.
