Assigned from Washington Wizards


Admiral Schofield (born March 30, 1997) was born in London, but later moved to the Chicago area with his family. Sports run strong in his family; his brother, O'Brien Schofield, was a Super Bowl-winning linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks. Schofield was recruited to play basketball at Tennessee. He was known for his "gym rat" mentality and showed performance improvements each year on the team. By his junior year, he averaged 13.9 PPG and 6.5 RPG and earned Second Team All-SEC status. He returned to Tennessee and finished his senior year, averaging 16.5 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. He was named to the First Team All-SEC that year. Schofield then entered the 2019 NBA Draft and was selected No. 42 overall by the Philadelphia 76ers before being immediately traded to the Washington Wizards. He played 33 games with the Capital City Go-Go where he averaged 16.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 30 minutes per game. He also played in 27 games for the Wizards, averaging 3.1 points and 1.3 rebounds in 10.9 minutes per game. After the NBA restart in Fall 2020, Schofield was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder along with Vít Krejčí for Cassius Winston and a 2024 second-round pick, but was ultimately waived by the end of the 2020-21 preseason. Enter the NBA G League Draft, where he became the first British-American to be drafted with the first overall selection. He'll look to continue improving as a member of the Greensboro Swarm this season.
