Wizards exercise options on Young, McGee

The team has exercised its options on guard Nick Young and center/forward JaVale McGee.

From the news release:

Under the terms of the NBA's collective bargaining agreement, the first two years of a first round draft pick's contract are guaranteed while the third and fourth year of the contract are the team's option. Young was selected with the 16th overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, while McGee was selected with the 18th overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.
Young averaged 9.3 points and 1.7 rebounds in 157 games during his first two seasons in Washington, while McGee averaged 6.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.0 block per game as a rookie with the Wizards last season.

More later from Michael Lee.

"Gil and Foye looked like they'd been playing together for years.

Gil just seems to have a really high comfort level when working with another talented combo guard. It was almost like he was paired with Larry Hughes again...

Expert analysis based on seeing one real game of Gilby and Foye together?

Whatever.

Calm down...it's just one regular season game.

Now all they have to do is give them some minutes or they will leave when given chance. These guys are the future develop them now. Oh it sure would have been nice to have Blair instead of Oberto for now and future.

Yes.

It's called coaching.

That and both players are very talented. There's a reason everyone was buzzing about EG's trade after it went down.

I kind of like Oberto right now. He knows his role and does it very well. The Wiz have not had a talented passer like him, like ever.

Blair is good and I know a lot of people wanted the Wiz to take him instead of give the pick up, but they have to win right now.

The time is over for developing players which is why NY is sitting the bench.

Even if we win 50 games that still means we lose 32 so don't anyone panick, and jump off the bandwagon when we lose.

Missed the first quarter, but our miseries in Atlanta continue. Poor shooting, terrible play from NY, and every single call going Atlanta's way thus far. Some of the calls have been terrible. Seems like we are playing LA in LA or something.

I think we'll make it a game in the second half, but the shooting has got to improve. Blatche is brining it two games in a row. Nice!
