Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Washington Wizards

With just $45MM in guaranteed salaries on the books for 2016/17, and no draft picks to account for, the Wizards could have the flexibility to add a pair of maximum-salary contracts. However, long-coveted hometown target Kevin Durant doesn’t appear too likely to land in D.C. this summer, and one of those max salaries will likely be earmarked for Bradley Beal, despite his injury history. That leaves the Wizards with a tough call on what to do with their remaining cap room. Making a run at a second max player would require renouncing all – or at least most – of their unrestricted free agents, some of whom could be worth keeping around. It would also mean filling out the roster with a ton of minimum-salary players. In other words, it might make more sense to spread that cap room around, assuming Durant is indeed off the table.
