Wizards Insider: July 25, 2010 - July 31, 2010

Josh Howard deal a steal for Washington Wizards?

Here's hoping this deal works out for both of us, Josh. (Photo by Jonathan Newton /The Washington Post) If not for his serious left knee injury last February, Josh Howard probably would've been one of the most sought after small forwards this summer. Arguably, it would've been LeBron James,...

Andray Blatche visits Nationals Park

Andray Blatche made his first visit to Nationals Park on Tuesday expecting to catch phenom pitcher Stephen Strasburg. But like he many others, he was probably disappointed that he had to watch Miss Iowa instead of Miss Universe, as Strasburg was pulled from his start in favor of Miguel...

Josh Howard returning to the Wizards

This isn't going to be the last time you see me in a Wizards uniform. (Photo by John McDonnell/The Washington Post) Josh Howard played just four games for the Washington Wizards last season, but that apparently was all the time that both sides needed to decide that the relationship...

JaVale McGee cut from Team USA [UPDATED]

There won't be any JaValevator sightings in Turkey -- or New York, for that matter -- this summer. Wizards center JaVale McGee was cut from Team USA on Wednesday, unable to extend his promising offseason, which saw him dominate the Las Vegas Summer league and earn a surprise invitation to...

Is it Al Thornton time?

Yeah, I'm the guy who busted Boston for 24 points. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa) It's pretty easy to forget about Al Thornton since he barely was around long enough to make a difference for the Washington Wizards last season. He arrived in late February, had some great games followed by...

Kirk Hinrich hoping to provide leadership, defense

I just want to make one thing clear: It's Kirk! (Photo by Jahi Chikwendiu/The Washington Post) Kirk Hinrich wanted to keep him from driving into the lane, force him to take a difficult jumper, and Gilbert Arenas did exactly what Hinrich wanted. But when Hinrich and Tyson Chandler lunged...

JaVale McGee starts with a blast, finishes quietly

JaVale McGee is a lock to make Team USA -- if managing director Jerry Colangelo and Coach Mike Krzyzewski based their decision solely on his performance in the first two minutes of the second quarter of Saturday's USA Basketball Showcase. Unfortunately for McGee, a lot more will be taken into...
