The 2016–17 Washington Wizards season was the 56th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and 44th in the Washington, D.C. area. On April 14, 2016, the Wizards fired Randy Wittman after the team missed the playoffs.[1][2] On April 26, 2016, the Wizards hired Scott Brooks to be their head coach.[3] The Wizards clinched a playoff berth on their 129–108 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday March 24, 2017 after having a one-season absence from the playoffs. On March 28, 2017, the Wizards defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 119–108 to win their first division title since 1979 ending their 38-year drought when they were named the Bullets.

The Wizards finished the regular season with a 49–33 record, securing the 4th seed. In the playoffs, the Wizards defeated the Atlanta Hawks in six games in the First Round, advancing to the Semifinals, where they lost to the Boston Celtics in a hard fought seven games.
