Waiting on the word
Something could be complete (finally) on the Navarro deal today. I'll let you know when it's official. To update a few other Wiz matters:
-Dominic McGuire is expected to sign his rookie deal as soon as Monday. He'll sign for the rookie minimum ($427,163).
-Aaron Miles has reached a deal with a team in Europe which is significant because the Wiz were going to bring him to camp. Judging by the way Miles played in summer league and by the team's response to him, he would have had a chance to make the final roster. As it stands now, that spot could go to DC native and former V Tech PG Brian Chase, who played on the summer league team as well. Should he make the team, Chase would earn the second-year minimum ($687,456).
- Mike Hall, who received the qualifying offer and has a non-guaranteed invite to camp, would likely come in with a figure of $862,000. Now if all of those figures work out as I have them, the Wiz would have around $2.78 left under the luxury tax to decide what it wants to do with Andray Blatche.
-I spoke with Donell Taylor today to get an update on his situation and he told me that he's still waiting to figure out where he's going to be next season. At this point, the Wiz have not offered an invite to camp but he has received some interest from a few teams including Miami and Charlotte though he said that Miami would likely move on after the recent signing of Smush Parker. Personally, I hope Donell lands somewhere. He's a good kid and has the kind of talent that should allow him to make a living in his league if the fit is right.
