After (Marcin) Gortat proclaimed the team’s reserves “one of the worst benches in the league right now” following Washington’s seventh loss in nine games Saturday against Chicago, (Wizards coach Scott) Brooks and Gortat stood together in front of the team before practice Monday. Gortat apologized, and Brooks preached unity to a team that can’t afford to waste energy pointing fingers.

With that possibility hanging over them, Brooks promised Gortat’s comments had no lingering effects on the team’s mind-set.

“You move on, and we have a good group of guys that understand that,” Brooks said. “We all make mistakes at times, but we have to move on, and we will. We’re not happy, and that’s a good thing. If we were happy and we’re 2-7, I would be really concerned.

It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.

The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
