Jordan Poole is ready to prove himself to the fans of the Washington Wizards.
After being traded to the Wizards from the Golden State Warriors just weeks ago, Poole is hard at work preparing to start the new season.
A new video from basketball development specialist Sifu shows Poole in the gym, practicing his shot.
“The JordanPooleParty Is heading To Washington DC This Season, And I will Say That The New Improved JP Is A Blockbuster Movie Just Waiting To Be Seen!” Sifu said in a tweet.
What will the “new and improved” Poole do for the Wizards?

In his last season with the Warriors, Poole averaged 20.4 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4.5 assists with a 43% field goal percentage.
However, Poole hit a bit of a rough patch during the playoffs and especially during the team’s series against the Los Angeles Lakers.
In total, he averaged just 10.3 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 3.5 assists during the postseason.
That may have been part of the reason why the Warriors were ready to trade Poole away.
They got rid of his hefty contract and instead signed up with Chris Paul to help lead the team.
That means that Poole has something to prove in Washington and he wants to remind people why he was one of the most talked-about Golden State players just a few seasons ago.
The Wizards could be a perfect place for that.
Kyle Kuzma had a similar career to Poole’s when he came from the Lakers to the Wizards and he has now found some redemption in Washington, DC.
