"We've made some good moves during the offseason, but the one thing that we certainly are aware of is that we don't have enough quality bigs on the roster," a team source said. "We're going to have to do something for sure."
The Wizards have focused their interest on three big men in particular, gauging the interest of Jamal Magloire, Rasho Nesterovic and Fabricio Oberto. They are in no big rush, so look for them to make a move on one of these guys or someone else of that ilk later this summer.
The Wizards will get someone to bite on either the mid-level exception ($5.85 million) or the biannual exception. With their history, look for them to almost certainly offer the much cheaper biannual exception (just under $2 million).
"In these uncertain economic times, you really have to be careful with how you spend," the team source said. "It's just a fact of life now. The bad economy is pinching everyone in all walks of life. The NBA is no different. We are feeling the pinch, too."
