Washington Wizards depth chart for 2021-22 season

The Washington Wizards are second only to the Memphis Grizzlies with respect to the number of players acquired via trade in the 2021 offseason.

With each of them set to play a key role in the Wizards' rotation, how and where do they fit in the team's depth chart alongside the rest of the roster?

The Wizards tip off their 2021-22 regular season campaign in Toronto on Oct. 20.

Notable additions or subtractions

Most of Washington's roster turnover for the 2021-22 season comes as a consequence of the Russell Westbrook trade.

The Wizards acquired the trio of Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope from the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Westbrook. Their guard duo of Spencer Dinwiddie (sign-and-trade) and Aaron Holiday, meanwhile, was added via separate trade deals. They also selected Corey Kispert with the No. 15 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft while acquiring the rights to Isaiah Todd in a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks.

In addition to Westbrook, the Wizards traded Chandler Hutchison in a deal with the Spurs. In free agency, they let as many as four players walk in Alex Len, Ish Smith, Isaac Bonga and Robin Lopez.

Positional battles

Given how badly they were decimated by injuries in the 2020-21 season, it's good to see the Wizards going into this season healthy with plenty of depth at every position.

The most intriguing positional battle for the team is their wings. Which duo among Kuzma, Avdija, Hachimura and Bertans fit the best with Bryant at center and the guard duo of Dinwiddie and Beal? How does the team's lottery pick, Corey Kispert, fit alongside them?

At the big man spot, can Montrezl Harrell - after a subpar 2020-21 season by his standards - resolidify himself as the first big man off the bench or will Daniel Gafford - who stepped up for the team late last season - be a better fit for the team?
