Preseason open thread: Wizards at 76ers

The Washington Wizards play their second and final preseason game tonight at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. On Friday they were crushed by the 76ers, 103-78. After the game, the coach expressed his frustration.

“I was disappointed with our main guys. They got their [butts] kicked,” said Coach Flip Saunders, who repeatedly buried his head in his hand as his team was walloped in every category.

On Monday, Washington re-signed restricted free agent Nick Young. Can the return of last season’s leading scorer — for now off the bench — turn things around for the Wizards’ struggling offense? Saunders plans to give Young some time with the season opener only six days away.

Rookie Jan Vesely is doubtful with a hip injury. Discuss the game in the comments below. You can also join the conversation on Twitter with Michael Lee (MrMichaelLee).

 Tipoff: 7:00 p.m.; TV: Comcast SportsNet Plus. Radio: 106.7 (WJFK FM). Check out a live box score from tonight’s game here.
