Rui Hachimura has officially waved his goodbyes to the D.C. area.
The Japanese star published a Twitter post on Tuesday, thanking the Washington Wizards franchise and its entire fan base for the unwavering support he received since 2019.
As such, with a new chapter opening its door for him in Los Angeles, Hachimura is very much excited to become a Laker.
Hachimura has officially landed in L.A., doing workouts already as the newest member of the purple and gold. He was seen putting up some work in pregame of the Lakers’ Tuesday showdown vs. L.A. Clippers, but the young forward won’t be available to play.
The Lakers acquired Hachimura from the Wizards in exchange for Kendrick Nunn and three second-round picks.
