Wiz and Rockets, Game 4
I just got done chatting with Nick Young before the Wizards tipped off against the Rockets and Nick, who entered tonight's game averaging 10.7 points on 31.3 percent shooting, talked about trying to "settle down" tonight and tomorrow in the finale.
"I think I've been trying to force things a little too much, forcing shots and being a little too aggressive at times," Young said. "I wanted to come out here and play so well, I kind of got ahead of myself a little bit. When I force things, it throws my shot off. I need to just settle down and play my game."
-I chatted with Ernie Grunfeld a bit and asked him about free agency/the remainder of the summer. Things are pretty quiet around the league now that most of the top unrestricted free agents have signed. Most of the big name restricted guys aren't drawing big offers because teams know that their current squads can - and likely will - match.
The Wiz have around $1.5 million remaining under the luxury tax but keep in mind they may not even want to use all of that in order to keep a little wiggle room underneath for a 10-day guy should a rash of injuries hit as it did last season. Grunfeld has never ruled out going over the tax but he's not doing it unless it's for an impact player.
You can bet that Ernie has talked about potential trade ideas with his colleagues throughout the week. Most of the general managers in the league are here as well as a slew of agents and there is a lot of chatter. Usually, that chatter amounts to nothing but you never know right?
