The Washington Wizards took the next step in 2014-15 with a trip to the Eastern Conference Semifinals, but there's still some work to be done on the supporting cast as the team eyes an NBA Finals berth next summer. Here's our list of 3 Free Agents The Washington Wizards Should Pursue This Offseason.
G/F Marco Belinelli
The Wizards are on the lookout for a swingman with three-point range, and while Belinelli hit just 37 percent from deep in 2014-15, he remains one of the most consistent spot-up threats in the entire NBA when he's on. He shot 43 percent from deep just a season ago, so don't be surprised if the Wizards bank on his past production and give him a look on the open market.
G/F Danny Green
Belinelli's teammate went through a protracted shooting slump to close out 2014-15, but he still posted 11.7 points per game with 42 percent accuracy from three in a supporting role for Gregg Popovich's Spurs. The problem with Green is that he's going to be a highly coveted commodity for several teams come July, likely driving his price out of the Wizards' range, despite having in the neighborhood of $11 million to play with (minus draft picks' contracts).
G/F Anthony Morrow
Morrow's a less heralded version of Danny Green who shot 43.4 percent from deep last year and provided the depleted OKC Thunder with a needed spark off the bench. His biggest draw is that he can either spot up or use his athleticism to hit the rack of the dribble, making him a versatile offensive threat on what will likely be a budget deal compared to what Green will command.
