Latest Nick Young Items
Nene arrived in Washington early Saturday evening to take his physical, the final step before officially becoming a member of the Wizards.
Washington Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld cautioned that the team's trade for veteran center Nene doesn't mean the team is abandoning its plan to build through the draft and develop their young players.
Nene has been called a top-10 center in the NBA by several league analysts. If healthy, he could be a major piece of the rebuild the Washington Wizards began last year when they drafted point guard John Wall and ended the run of the former "Big Three" of Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison.
John Wall will not be traded Thursday. But the fate of every other player in a Washington Wizards uniform is anyone's guess.
It hasn't been an easy couple of days for Nick Young. The Wizards' starting shooting guard was benched when the Orlando Magic came to town on Wednesday and adding injury to insult, bruised his right knee in the fourth quarter.
Nick Young took 23 shots. He made just six. But his most memorable miss came when, instead of going for an easy layup, he went up for a reverse 360 and missed everything. It was a signature moment against the Sacramento Kings in a game that the Washington Wizards should have won, but threw away on sloppy and selfish play. The result was a 115-107 loss.
Nick Young scored a season-high 35 points, John Wall added 29 points and nine assists, and the Washington Wizards beat the Portland Trail Blazers 124-109 Tuesday night for their third straight road win.
The Washington Wizards are turning into road warriors. Nick Young scored a season-high 35 points, John Wall added 29 points and nine assists, and the Wizards beat the Portland Trail Blazers 124-109 Tuesday night for their second straight road win.
It was the perfect storm for the Wizards — a new coach and a dreadful opponent. But at this point, the Wizards will take wins any way they can get them. In Randy Wittman's first game since replacing Flip Saunders, who was fired on Tuesday, the Wizards beat the Charlotte Bobcats, 92-75.
