John Wall    G  Wizards

 

 

John Wall spoke about trying to recruit Pacers forward Paul George, who will be a free agent after the upcoming season. "Look at our team. We are one piece away," Wall said. "We have the point guard, we have the shooting guard, we have the center, we have the power forward. Our 3-man, [Otto Porter Jr.], did great for us. You can't take nothing away from what he did. But, [George] is a guy that can guard LeBron and go back at LeBron. It's a piece that you're going to need to win. If you don't have a guy who can do that, you don't have a chance. George appears to have his sights set on L.A. or Cleveland in the end, but it's not unthinkable that he could opt to join forces with Wall and Beal in Washington for the right deal. Either way, George's days in Indy appear to be numbered and it will be fun to watch his negotiations until we see where he'll finally land.

Bojan Bogdanovic    G/F  Wizards

 

 

The Wizards have reportedly extended a qualifying offer to Bojan Bogdanovic. This means Bogdanovic will become a restricted free agent along with Otto Porter. The Wizards will prioritize re-signing Porter, so Bogdanovic will only be back in Washington if his price doesn't get out of hand. After his mid-season trade from Brooklyn, Bogdanovic averaged 12.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.7 triples.

Otto Porter    F  Wizards

 

 

The Wizards have reportedly extended a qualifying offer to Otto Porter, making the forward a restricted free agent. The Wizards have the ability to match any offer he receives, so it's hard to imagine them letting him go even though he could be looking at a max deal. The Nets are expected to make a strong push to pry him away from Washington, but several other teams should surface as we approach July 1. Porter averaged 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 treys on 51.6 percent shooting, returning top-25 value in standard leagues.

Tim Frazier    G  Wizards

 

 

Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld said he traded the No. 52 pick for Tim Frazier because he's "someone who we feel can help us because he’s experienced." Frazier has some holes in his game because he's an average shooter and his size is a liability on defense, but he's a very good playmaker and should step in right away as John Wall's backup. "He’s a good teammate, he pushes the ball, he’s a competitive guy and, again, he has experience," Grunfeld added. Coach Scott Brooks was also a fan of the move, saying Frazier is "a tough kid, gritty, knows how to play, another guy that can push the pace and continue our pace and play fast." While he won't be on the standard league radar, Frazier will be a quality handcuff for Wall's owners in deeper formats.

Kris Jenkins    F  Wizards

 

 

Kris Jenkins will sign a training camp deal with the Wizards. Known for his game-winning 3-point shot in the 2016 NCAA championship, Jenkins played all four years at Villanova and averaged 13.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.4 3-pointers on 38.4 percent shooting during his seniors season. He's an undersized combo forward at 6'6" with a stocky build, and he's not the most versatile offensive player -- 76 percent of his shot attempts were jump shots and close to 90 percent of those were 3-pointers according to DraftExpress. The Wizards had one of the worst benches in the NBA last season, so Jenkins has a decent chance to make the roster.

Kelly Oubre    F  Wizards

 

 

Kelly Oubre is already back on the court after undergoing a PRP injection in his right knee earlier this month. Just about three weeks after the procedure, Oubre already being cleared to do on-court work is a positive development. Although he won't play in summer league, Oubre should be all systems go by the time training camp rolls around in a few months. He could play a big role for Washington if Otto Porter, who is expected to receive a lucrative payday as a restricted free agent, decides to sign elsewhere.

Marcin Gortat    C  Wizards

 

 

Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld confirmed that he's spoken to Marcin Gortat about his future with the franchise, adding, "He's going to be a big part of what we're doing." Gortat questioned his fit in Washington after they were eliminated from the playoffs, saying that he'd sacrificed more than anyone without due appreciation. "[Gortat] has averaged a double-double for four years," Grunfeld said. "He's been in the second round for three out of those four years ... Everybody has frustration after a tough loss and a tough series. [He] is with us." Considering Gortat is still under contract for two more seasons, that was never truly in doubt.
