    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

    Feb 11, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    It’s always about the money. As we near the trade deadline remember that: It is always about the money. The Washington Wizards could argue they are the third best team in the East. It’s a dubious honor this season and the title seems to change hands weekly between the Wizards, Raptors and Nets, but all…

    Randy Wittman

    Randy Wittman, coaching a Wizards team that has a singular focus of reaching the 2014 playoffs, watched his squad start 2-7 – placing him firmly on the hot seat. Washington then won seven of its next nine, and even with losses in its last two games, that should be enough for Wittman to keep his…

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Let’s get this out of the way up front — Nene is not injured.

    Oct 3, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal, John Wall

    Last season: The Wizards were pretty good when healthy, so they were pretty terrible. John Wall, Nene and Bradley Beal all battled injuries, and Washington finished 29-53. But looking closer, the Wizards actually weren’t half bad when their good players were healthy. With Wall: 24-25 With Wall and Nene: 22-19 With Wall, Nene and Beal:…

    Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook

    Damian Lillard racked up a lot of minutes last season — a league high 3,167. He averaged 38.6 minutes per game for a full 82 games. That’s a lot of time on the court. Understandably, he would like that number to go down, he told Sean Highkin of the USA Today. “Sometimes when you’re out…

    Jul 15, 2013, 9:12 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    The Wizards want to extend John Wall — he’s the guy they want to build around, the face of the franchise, he’s good in the locker room and good on the court (when he’s healthy and on the court). In his last 20 games last season he averaged averaged 23.9 points per game on 48.3…

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:59 PM EDT

    Martell Webster

    The Wizards got their backup point guard, a much-needed addition that will come in the form of Eric Maynor.
