The Wizards have made re-signing sharpshooting forward Davis Bertans in free agency a top offseason priority, but in order to do so they may have to outbid some teams with lots of money to spend.
Atlanta is shaping up to be particularly aggressive with his pursuit and they will have by far the most cap space this offseason of any team, while the Suns will have the seventh-most and the Knicks the eighth-most. Washington will be able to exceed the salary cap with a new contract for Bertans, as they hold his Bird Rights, but they also plan to avoid the luxury tax. The Latvian forward thrived in his first year with the Wizards, setting career-highs in points (15.4), rebounds (4.5), minutes (29.3) and triples made (3.7) and he should be one of the hottest free agents this offseason.
