Wizards Free Agents

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Wednesday, November 30, 2011

With free agency starting up soon, the Washington Post said the Wizards are reaching out to the agents of their three free agents to talk deals. These are the 3 players:

Nick Young:
Nick has been on the Wiz his whole career. He has shown flashes of being good but can never remain consistent. When his shot is going in, it is one of the prettiest in the NBA. He had games last year with 43 points, 38 points, and 32 points. He also had games with 5, 4, 3, 0. I don't know if he has the strong mind to become consistent in this league, but right now the Wiz may have to re-sign him to find out.

Josh Howard: (unrestricted) 2 Seasons ago after the Wizards cleaned house, Josh Howard came over and sparked the Wiz to 3 wins in 4 games. However, he got injured in that 4th game and the Wiz season was officially prematurely over. The next year he was out for the season 18 games in, so injuries are clearly a concern. Howard isn't the greatest player, more of a 6th man, but he brings an energy to the court and for a bad Wiz team he could be key. It would be nice to see him for a full season in a Wiz uniform.

Mo Evans: (unrestricted) I honestly have no idea who Mo Evans is. I abandoned the team last year. I'm a terrible fan. I also had full time school and work and stuff, but that is over and I'm back! I guess he was involved in the trade for Kirk Heinrich, but was just a temporary asset. Evans could be Ok for a few buckets off the bench, but if he is a huge priority, then I'm discouraged...

I don't know what is going to happen. I really wish the Wizards could have traded Nick Young and gotten some value out of him in the past 2 seasons. Instead he may leave and the Wizards will be compensated with nothing. I think the Wizards need to sign him for the short term if they can, but I'm not over-excited.

As for Howard, I'd think the Wizards need to take the injury risk for this year and re-sign him. He was such a spark for the team when he was on the floor. Mo Evans I could care less...
