Now that the Wizards have successfully ditched Gilbert Arenas’ massive contract for Rashard Lewis’ still-massive-but-not-quite-as-back-breaking deal, they’re in need of a little point guard help. John Wall is a stud and Kirk Hinrich a competent backup, but for games like tonight when Wall is out with injury and Hinrich is left to run the 1 solo, it becomes pretty obvious that the Wiz need another point guard in reserve, even if they don’t end up playing regular minutes on a nightly basis.
With that in mind, Washington’s decision to bring back Lester Hudson, as reported by Scott Schroeder of NBA FanHouse, seems pretty smart. Hudson won’t wow you, but he’s competent enough to fill in minutes in a jam. Hudson started off the season with the Wizards, but was cut to make room for Alonzo Gee on the roster. He didn’t exactly play well in his six games in Washington (Hudson posted an impressive -8.8 PER in limited minutes), but team officials liked him — and liked his familiarity with the offense, no doubt — enough to bring him back for another round.
