    The Wizards’ total salary will dip back under the tax line once they cut all their camp invitees. That’s a good thing for them, too, since this isn’t a team worth paying the tax for. No need to start the repeater clock when a max contract for Kevin Durant could be sitting on the books a year from now.

    I’m trying to understand why Kris Humphries is starting, but I really cant figure it out at all. John Wall, Bradley Beal, Jared Dudley, Otto Porter, Marcin Gortat should be the starting lineup. Honestly, I dont see how Humphries even plays with that roster. Drew Gooden should play over him, and Nene is the backup 5.

    • Arthur Hill

      It’s puzzling because the Wizards had success with small-ball lineups late last season and into the playoffs. Do you think Humphries will eventually play himself out of the rotation?

        I dont see how he hasnt already done that. If I’m Nene, I’m asking myself why I’m coming off the bench, if we arent going to play the way we should be, which is the specific reason I’m coming off the bench in the first place.
