Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld says the team is actively working the phones in advance of next Thursday's trade deadline, tweets Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Asked if Washington will make any moves, Grunfeld said "only time will tell."
Of the players on the Wizards' roster, Andray Blatche and Nick Young are the most likely to be involved in any significant move Washington makes. The Wizards are said to be aggressively shopping Blatche, having signed him to an ill-advised extension that keeps him under contract until 2015. Finding a taker for Blatche will be challenging, and Washington may have to take on an equally bad contract if they want to make a move.
Young, who will be eligible for unrestricted free agency this summer, has the option of vetoing any trades involving him, since he accepted a qualifying offer from the Wizards in the offseason. However, Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld reported this week that Young may welcome a trade to another club.
