The new Washington Wizards player Will Barton was somewhat shocked when he got traded to the team this offseason, he told Mike Singer of the Denver Post.

“It was just like a shock, but not too much of a shock,” Barton said. “It was a shock in that, obviously, I had been there eight years, did so much there together, so it’s always shocking when you’ve been somewhere for so long and you’re moving on. But, at the same time, I embraced it, I’m welcoming a new chapter.”
