Washington Wizards Notes, Quotes 2008-06-30

Washington Wizards Notes, Quotes 2008-06-30
--Now things get interesting for the Wizards with free agency right around the corner. In Gilbert Arenas and Antawn Jamison the Wizards have two of the most intriguing free agents in the league.

Arenas, a three-time all-star, will pass up the $12.8 million he was guaranteed next season and will now officially be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

"We'll do what we need to keep Gilbert," Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld said.

The Wizards can pay Arenas, viewed by most as the biggest free agent on the market, more than any other team. Arenas could sign a deal with the team that could fetch him around $120 million.

Sources close to Arenas say that the player wants to re-sign with the team. Arenas has also told people in the organization that he wants to have his number retired in Washington.

The biggest question concerning Arenas is the health of his knee, which was operated on twice in a span of six months last season.

Grunfeld said the Wizards likewise plan to keep Jamison, also an unrestricted free agent.

--With the addition of McGee, the Wizard have five players under the age of 23.

--While Wizards coach Eddie Jordan never publicly campaigns for the front office to make personnel moves, he had no problem going to bat for his coaching staff. The contracts of Mike O'Koren, Phil Hubbard, Randy Ayers and Wes Unseld, Jr, will expire this summer.

"I want them all back with me," Jordan said. "We have a very good staff. Randy played a huge role in improving our defense from what it was, and I've been with my guys for forever. Hopefully this will be resolved soon."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I feel great right now -- I really do." -- C Etan Thomas, assessing how he is feeling these days after undergoing heart surgery last year. Thomas is staying local this summer and has resumed workouts at Verizon Center.
