Now that Trevor Ariza's departure from the Wizards is official, coach Randy Wittman can talk about it and seems content with where they're headed.
Randy Wittman is not frustrated by the slow-moving pace of this year's free agency period. Besides, the Wizards coach believes in the draw his side presents to free agent Trevor Ariza.
Though one of the most coveted big men available, he barely spent a day mulling offers before he agreed to sign a five-year, $60 million deal on July 1 to remain with the Washington Wizards. The biggest reason was the team showed him the most "love."
The Wizards appear likely to re-sign Garrett Temple, and even though Chris Singleton is a long shot to stick around there's a scenario in which he still could.
If the Wizards want to add a stretch-4 this off-season, there may not be a better option than Channing Frye.
The Wizards continued working out prospects ahead of Thursday's NBA Draft. One player, Ohio State's LaQuinton Ross, made a rare second pre-draft visit.
One week after Flip Saunders took over as the Timberwolves head coach comes a report about Wizards assistant Ryan Saunders leaving to join his dad in Minnesota.
The Wizards could use more players with the ability to create off the dribble, and a veteran like Boris Diaw, who creates matchup problems for other bigs, likely would flourish in their system.
Derek Fisher is about to finalize a deal worth $5 million per year with the Knicks, almost twice what the Wizards will be paying coach Randy Wittman starting 2014-15.
Wizards coach Randy Wittman says his players support him because they understand that he has to "push buttons" to get the desired outcome.
Flip Saunders looked for a new coach. The Timberwolves president's search ended with a familiar face - his own.
Randy Wittman never was concerned about whether or not he would get a contract extension, and president Ernie Grunfeld said he was certain of it even before the playoffs.
With an extension with the Wizards signed, Randy Wittman discusses developing the team.
Wittman's approach helped turn the Wizards from pushover to playoff winners. Now he'll have a chance to stick around following a 44-38 season, a 15-win improvement from last year, after the Wizards gave him a contract extension.
As long as Randy Wittman wanted to remain in Washington, the team didn't talk with other coaches as it prepares to make his extension official this week and bring in players for pre-draft workouts next week.
"He can spread the floor, so you lose that," Wittman said of Ariza, who shot a career-high 40.7% from the three-point line as the Wizards won 44 games and advanced to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in nine years. "We'll gain other things back but from a defensive standpoint, his ability to spread the floor and knock down threes was important to us."
"It happens all the time," Wittman said.
