WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Wizards will have their own team in the developmental NBA G League that will be based in Washington and begin playing in the 2018-19 season.

The Wizards announced the acquisition of the team Wednesday that will play home games at their new 5,000-seat practice facility in Southeast Washington. It's the 27th team in the newly renamed league sponsored by Gatorade that was previously known as the NBA D-League.

Last season the Wizards assigned Danuel House, Sheldon McClellan and Chris McCullough to the developmental league, split over three teams: the Delaware 87ers, Rio Grande Valley Vipers and  Northern Arizona Suns

The as-yet-named new G League team will be owned and operated by Ted Leonsis' Monumental Sports & Entertainment.
