The decision on what to do with Jarell Eddie’s non-guaranteed contract will be delayed after both sides agreed to “push” the date to the start of the regular season, league sources told CSNmidatlantic.com on Friday.
Eddie, a 6-7 guard who has shown well at summer league, is due to make $980,000 in his second season with the Wizards if he’s deal was guaranteed by the original deadline today.
The Wizards, however, still have moves to make to retool their roster and asked Eddie agreed to move back the guarantee date. It seems like a risky move now that the Wizards have extended partial guarantees to Danuel House, Sheldon McClellan and Daniel Ochefu to attend training camp.

LeBron James Still Uncertain for Season Opener
LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.
James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
