  1. Wizards draft Georgetown’s Porter. At least we got that right

    Jun 28, 2013, 1:51 AM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    WASHINGTON D.C. — In the most unpredictable of NBA Drafts, the Washington Wizards went with a player everyone assumed they were taking all along. The long-rumored marriage between the John Wall-Bradley Beal fueled Wizards and Georgetown small forward Otto Porter Jr. became official when NBA commissioner David Stern announced the third overall pick. Seemingly every…

  2. Wednesday And-1 links: 76ers in no rush to hire a coach

  3. Wizards wary of becoming too young

    May 23, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal

    The Wizards rightfully believe they would have made the playoffs if they remained healthy this season. Washington went 24-25 with John Wall – a better winning percentage than the eighth-seeded Bucks (38-44). And when Wall, Nene and Bradley Beal all played, the Wizards were 15-7. Washington should be excited to have a team on the…

  5. Stan Van Gundy says John Wall not good enough for Wizards to build around

    Jan 2, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    The Wizards are unquestionably the worst team in the league this season. At a record of just 4-25, Washington has four fewer wins than the Bobcats team that just finished up an 18-game losing streak. Things are not only dismal in Washington, but few see any sign that the franchise has even begun to put…

  6. Wizards waive Barron, Livingston; Look for another move soon.

    Dec 23, 2012, 3:31 PM EDT

    Shaun Livingston Deron Williams

    The Wizards made a move that in and of itself would barely ripple the NBA waters — on Sunday they waived guard Shaun Livingston and center Earl Barron. Both were on non-guaranteed contracts. Yawn. Both guys saw very limited minutes and there contributions were minimal. (For the Lakers fans and others that will inevitably tweet…

  7. It’s his life: John Wall doesn’t know who Jon Bon Jovi is

    Oct 18, 2012, 11:58 AM EDT

    From John Wall's Instagram account

    The Washington Wizards were in Toronto last night — and so was Jon Bon Jovi. The New Jersey rocker was at the Air Canada Centre and that means those attending the Raptors preseason win were subjected to a lot of blaring Bon Jovi music — “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “You give love a bad name,”…

  8. Report: Martell Webster reaches deal with Washington

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    We told you early this morning that Martell Webster had gone in and worked out for the Washington Wizards and there seemed to be a fit We’ll, we’ve got a fit. Marc Stein of ESPN just reported the deal is done. Free-agent swingman Martell Webster has agreed to terms on a new contract with the…

  9. Josh Selby shows he’s closer to reaching potential at NBA Summer League

    Jul 18, 2012, 12:34 AM EDT

    josh selby

    LAS VEGAS — Josh Selby earned a vote for the NBA’s All-Rookie Third Team this past that many in the media felt wasn’t deserved. While that may have been the case, there’s a good chance he cemented himself a spot on the All-Summer League roster following Monday evening’s performance at the Cox Pavilion in lovely…

  10. Donatas Motiejunas and other young players started off solidly at NBA Summer League

    Jul 14, 2012, 2:12 AM EDT

    donatas motiejunas

    LAS VEGAS — The NBA Summer League began on Friday and, unfortunately, none of the games were very close. Fortunately, however, there were a lot of pretty stellar performances that fans should be impressed with considering their rookies were playing in their first professional games. It’s tough to take too much of the game to…

  12. No surprise, the Wizards are open for firesale business. Everything but Wall must go.

    Mar 10, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    That the Wizards are terrible should not surprise you. A terrible team looking to change its personnel should not surprise you. But when any team declares itself completely open for business outside of one player, yeah, that’s worth at least a look. From the Washington Post’s Michael Lee:   Source just told me #wizards have…

  13. Wizards might trade you McGee… if you take Blatche, too

    Mar 9, 2012, 3:38 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche, JaVale McGee

    UPDATE 7:38 PM: It’s not just McGee you can have if you take on Blatche, Michael Lee of the Washington Post tweets. Source just told me wizards have informed teams they can have any player except John Wall if they are willing to take Andray Blatche That is how bad the Wizards want Blatche out…

  16. Flip Saunders seat not hot at all in Washington

    Jan 4, 2012, 3:36 PM EDT

    Flip Saunders

    If you were trying to names coaches on the hot seat early this season, Flip Saunders name would come to mind. Because his Wizards squad is the lone winless team in the NBA, for one. Because even with John Wall and JaVale McGee in the lineup the Wizards have the very worst offense in the…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks fall, Heat race into top spot

    Dec 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Only one third of the teams in the NBA have played a game, but it was enough to move some teams around and give us a new No. 1. 1. Heat (1-0, last week ranked No. 2). They had 100 possessions in their opening game, nine more than they averaged last season. If they do…

    Players will be making their way back from overseas now that the lockout is effectively over, yes, even those that signed with the Chinese Basketball Association and their “no opt-out” rule. You’re going to see a slew of releases over everything from “injuries” like strained hamstrings to “personal differences” as reasons why CBA teams “release”…

  21. Today’s overseas roundup: Wilson Chandler thinking China

    Aug 16, 2011, 1:54 PM EDT

    Chandler_Wilson

    There are so many NBA players both talking with and signing with overseas teams that we’re going to start putting them in a regular roundup (major stars, like Amar’e Stoudemire, still get their own posts). Why? Because I’m a blogger and therefore am drawn to bullet points like a moth to a bug zapper. •…

  22. Wizards should play even faster with Vesely in lineup

    Jun 27, 2011, 6:50 PM EDT

    Jan Vesely

    The Washington Wizards knew what they had — last year at Summer League Sam Cassell (coaching the team in Vegas) and Flip Saunders said the Wizards were going to run. They had John Wall, they were going to up the tempo and get in in the open court. And they did, they moved from 21st…

  23. Video: Jan Vesely is living the dream

    Jun 24, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    Jan Vesely is my new hero. They guy is the second coming of AK-47 (well, that’s what the scouts say), got drafted into the NBA to play next to John Wall — and got the best welcome into the NBA we can remember. Damn. Impressive.

  24. NBA Draft: Czech center Vesely not working out for teams

    Jun 1, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    12

    There are a lot of Europeans near the top of this year’s draft. NBA teams are interested in part due to the looming lockout — draft a big man project and he can play overseas through a lockout, develop some more then bring him over in a year. Meet Jan Vesely, who falls into that…

  25. NBA Draft: Lottery pick Jan Vesely pulls out of NBA Draft, to stay in Serbia

    Apr 26, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

    Jan Vesely has chosen Serbia over the NBA. For now, anyway. Vesely was the one sure lottery pick left of this year’s crop of international players announced for the NBA draft, possibly the only one to go in the first round. However he and his agent told DraftExpress.com that he has decided to stay overseas…
