The Capital City Go-Go are set to join the NBA G League during the 2018-2019 season, becoming the 27th franchise to join the league. The Go-Go will be the single affiliate of the Washington Wizards, playing their games just five miles away from Capital One Arena.
On Wednesday, August 22, Capital City will take its first steps towards filling out its roster by selecting 14 unprotected players from the 26 current G League franchises in the 2018 NBA G League Expansion Draft. Each team is allowed to protect 12 players who they have the returning rights to from the expansion draft. Additionally, none of the current 26 G League teams can lose more than 2 players that they have the rights to.
