Wizards Actively Reviewing Trade Options to Fit Vision?

Washington is actively searching for ways to bolster its roster, according to people with knowledge of the situation, though options are limited with the team’s short- and long-term visions in mind.

The Wizards do not believe a significant overhaul is necessary to ascend into the top eight in the Eastern Conference standings for a third straight playoff berth.

The Wizards’ likelier deadline scenario is acquiring a player whose salary won’t absorb any of the cap room required for a max-contract level player in free agency. That leaves either players on expiring contracts or players who will make less than the $8 million or $9 million the Wizards expect to have available beyond a max-contract player this summer.

The veteran big man appeared in 30 contests for the Celtics this season. He averaged 7.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 15.7 minutes per game over that span.
