Andrew Nicholson will sign a four-year, $26MM deal with the Wizards, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. He will have a player option on his final season, tweets Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today.

The 26-year-old power forward became an unrestricted free agent this week when the Magic elected not to submit a qualifying offer. He spent four years in Orlando and averaged 6.9 points and 3.6 rebounds in 56 games this season.

The Wizards are in need of big men, entering free agency with only center Marcin Gortat and power forward Markieff Morris signed for next season. They reached an agreement with Pacers center Ian Mahinmi on Saturday.

this is a little less than I was expecting him to get, so good deal for them. They have to use better rotations this year. Relying on Scott Brooks for that is tough lol, but its harder to mess it up. Still need to address lost areas on the bench
