Outgoing: Kidd-Gilchrist, Williams, Batum, Walker, Zeller, CHA 2018 1st (lotto protected)
Incoming: Wiggins, Teague, Rubio, Faried, Bradley, Muhammad

Outgoing: Jabari Parker, Mirza Teletovic, Kris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, Thon Maker, DJ Wilson, Tony Snell
Incoming: Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Jared Dudley, Spencer Dinwiddie, Nik Stauskas, Jahlil Okafor

The Wizards were trying to do an on the fly reshaping of the team, as the chemistry issues and lack of success have been well documented, therefore we made moves in order to ensure both long term and short term success in the absence of Wall.
