The Washington Wizards have plenty of available names remaining on their wishlist with the 2015 NBA free agency period heading into its first weekend. These three names, however, should be crossed out, crossed out again and then whited out for good measure. Here's our list of 3 Free Agents The Washington Wizards Must Avoid.
F/C Tyler Hansbrough
Hansbrough is a nice, versatile frontcourt piece to have on your bench. However, in 2015 NBA free agency terms, that means he's going to command WAY MORE money that the Wizards -- or anyone for that matter -- should be spending on him. Rather than locking up a relative premium in a role player, Washington would be better suited holding onto their lunch money for the great Kevin Durant scramble next July.
G Jimmer Fredette
Fredette will likely be looking for a job for awhile after looking utterly ineffective in peanuts minutes (10.2 per game) in 50 games with the New Orleans Pelicans in 2014-15. Fredette shot 38% from the field this past season, and a two-year-old little brother-playing-NBA2K 18.8% from beyond the arc. Someone's gonna be dumb enough to pay him. Don't let it be you, Washington.
PF Luis Scola
Scola is a fine backup power forward, but again that's going to lead to someone overpaying him plenty for limited minutes. Scola is 35 years old and a bastion of the non-stretch four days of the NBA. That means, he CAN'T SHOOT THREES (just over 25% from downtown in 2014-15) -- a death knell for any team trying to keep up with the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavs of the world.Back to the Washington Wizards Newsfeed
