  • Tomas Satoransky
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    The Wizards and Bulls have agreed to a sign-and-trade that will send Tomas Satoransky to Chicago on a three-year, $30 million deal.

    Satoransky finally got a chance to shine last season when John Wall was injured and he ended up delivering top-100 fantasy value over the final two months of the year while averaging 11.0 points, 6.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds after the All-Star break. Although Woj says that Satoransky will get a chance to start, it's not a great spot for him to land in terms of fantasy value because the Bulls already have Coby White and Kris Dunn rather than a wide open depth chart, and even if (when) Dunn moves on the future clearly lies with White. The Wizards got protections erased on a 2023 second-rounder that they obtained from Chicago for Otto Porter as well as the better of Memphis' or Chicago's second-rounders in 2020 and the right to swap a 2022 second-rounder.

    Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis are unlikely to return to the Wizards, per Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.

    And with that, the Wizards dealt Otto Porter for nothing but cap space and a second-rounder in 2023. There were earlier reports that the Wizards wanted to work on a new deal with Parker but apparently they will let him leave in free agency. Washington has no forward depth to speak of at the moment, and we could be seeing a ton of rookies Rui Hachimura and Admiral Schofield this season.

  • Jeff Green
    SF, Washington Wizards

    According to Tony Jones, the Jazz have interest in Wizards free agent Jeff Green.

    It feels like it's coming out of left field but the Jazz are likely adding in a blend of veteran leadership and experience to their locker room with this potential move. Stay tuned.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Thomas Bryant and the Wizards have agreed on a three-year deal worth $25 million.

    Bryant showed flashes of being a solid center for the Wizards last season, so it comes as no surprise that they'd want to keep their young big man in the fold. Bryant's in a good situation in Washington and should be able to take another leap forward in 2019-20.

  • Quinn Cook
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype is reporting that Quinn Cook is attracting early interest from the Wizards, Sixers, Suns, Heat, Hornets, Nets and Mavs.

    The Warriors have the right to match any offer that comes Cook's way. That's a very lengthy list of teams, some with huge holes at point guard and others in the market for depth signings. Cook doesn't figure to be a fantasy factor but we'll wait for the dust to settle to declare anything officially.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, Washington Wizards

    In addition to the Wizards, Jazz and Knicks, the Clippers are another team showing significant interest in Bobby Portis according to Alex Kennedy of Hoopshype.

    The 24 year old big man has been a hot commodity on the market, and is searching for a contract in the $16 million range. The Clippers are likely to not make any sort of move until they know what is happening with Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant, and with Portis already expected to hold meetings on day one of free agency, they may not get the opportunity to get in a room with him.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Thomas Bryant will meet with the Wizards as soon as free agency begins according to Fred Katz on Twitter.

    The underlying assumption here is that Bryant is Washington's first priority in free agency, a move that is supported by their recent trend of prioritizing young players since Tommy Shepard took over as GM. Assuming they reach a agreement, Bryant would have a decent shot at being the opening night starting center and would hold mid-round fantasy appeal.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Bobby Portis will meet with the Jazz when free agency opens, per Tony Jones of The Athletic.

    About 10 days ago Jones also reported that Portis has "significant interest" in joining the Jazz, and he would give the team a more dynamic look out of the four spot than incumbent Derrick Favors. He's said to be looking for $16 million annually and is also receiving interest from the Knicks, among others. Portis put together a career year last season and is looking to parlay that into a larger role with a bigger paycheck.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, Washington Wizards

    The Knicks are interested in young bigs like Bobby Portis and Julius Randle should they miss out on the top tier free agents, per SNY's Ian Begley.

    The interest in Randle is well-known at this point, with other reports indicating that the interest is mutual. Portis is said to be looking for $16 million in free agency, and if the Knicks miss out on the top dogs and find themselves with $70 million to spend they could certainly outdo most other bidders for Portis. New York does not want to lock up long-term deals with anyone other than superstars, but a heavy, short-term commitment would be awfully appealing. Begley also confirms that the Knicks have some interest in DeMarcus Cousins, but it sounds as though they're prioritizing younger players if they strike out with the superstars.

  • Isaac Bonga
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Isaac Bonga will be dealt to the Wizards when the Anthony Davis trade can be officially completed.

    The move is all about clearing cap space for the Lakers, and the Wizards will take a shot on some young players for nothing but cash. Bonga has a chance at minutes as things currently stand, though the best-case scenario for him is probably as Tomas Satoransky's backup. He's on the map in dynasty formats at least.

  • Jemerrio Jones
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Jemerrio Jones will be traded to the Wizards.

    Jones only appeared in six games last season but will give the Wizards someone to help shore up the shooting guard position. He's unlikely to make waves in fantasy.

  • Moritz Wagner
    PF, Washington Wizards

    The Lakers are trading Mo Wagner, Isaac Bonga and Jemerrio Jones to the Wizards for a 2022 second round pick as part of the Anthony Davis deal, while the Pelicans will get $1.1 million in cash from the Wizards.

    The Lakers have now got themselves max cap space in their pursuit of a third star to pair with Davis and LeBron James. Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler and Kemba Walker are at the top of the Lakers wish list. As for Wagner, he finds himself on a team that showed an interest in him before last year's draft and an opportunity at some minutes. He could provide sneaky late-round value in fantasy leagues next season. This buildup to free agency continues to get more and more interesting by the hour. Mark June 30th on your calendar.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Thomas Bryant has been given a qualifying offer from the Wizards, making him a restricted free agent.

    Bryant surprised last season, coming from obscurity to finish with top-125/100 value (8/9-cat). That despite Scott Brooks toying with his minutes. If the Wizards can keep Bryant around last season's workload he'll easily be a steal in fantasy leagues, though we're obviously hoping he takes hold of the starting job.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Tony Jones and Fred Katz of The Athletic are reporting Bobby Portis is looking for as much as $16 million in free agency and has interest from multiple teams.

    According to Jones and Katz, the Wizards aren't expected to match a huge offer sheet on Portis. As a restricted free agent, the Wiz declining to match would allow him to go elsewhere. The Utah Jazz have been a team at the top of the list on the rumor mill. Portis averaged 14.3 points and 8.6 rebounds in 28 games for the Wiz last season.

  • John Wall
    PG, Washington Wizards

    On Monday night at the 2019 NBA Awards, John Wall gave affirmation that he is indeed continuing to get healthier and stronger.

    Wall has been able to slowly increase what he can do on his legs. The recovery and rehab for an injury as severe as his is a long road, and the point guard is making sure not to speed up the process and risk hindering the progress. However, he's about to reach a pretty big milestone in the journey during the coming weeks. And while Wall's offseason has been a busy one, as he juggles rehab, he still has been very involved in everything going on inside the franchise, recently chatting with first-round draft pick Rui Hachimura.
