Washington Wizards first-round draft pick Rui Hachimura competed in his first NBA Summer League game on Saturday, contributing to the team’s 84-79 win over the New Orleans Pelicans at Thomas and Mack Center.

The 21-year-old forward, playing for the first time since his final appearance for Gonzaga University during the NCAA Tournament in March, got off to a shaky start and committed a few miscues in the first half. The rookie from Toyama Prefecture eventually found his footing, scoring 12 of his 14 points in the second half.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
