The Wizards finally got their season on the right track after winning five games in a row despite the absence of All-Star point guard John Wall, but the team is far from satisfied.
Washington is doing all it can to get better both on the court with the players they have and by adding talent from outside the organization. According to ESPN, the team has actively been pursuing Clippers center DeAndre Jordan. They have also put their own center Marcin Gortat on the trade block.
Jordan has been the talk of many trade rumors over the last couple months and the Wizards are also after him. He has one year left on his contract worth approximately $24 million. Gortat also is signed up for one more season for $13.56 million and Washington is hopeful it can swap the two players before Thursday’s deadline.
We’re not coming to a number we both agree on — they are too low, or I guess they feel I’m too high, Bell said. I’m playing for strictly my value to the team. That’s what I’m asking. I don’t think I should settle for anything less than what I’m valued at.
Bell said he wasn’t bluffing when he told ESPN in January that he’ll contemplate retirement if asked to play on the tag another year. All options are on the table for Bell, who doesn’t plan to sign a tag any time soon and would likely skip training camp once again.
