Default Is Coach Randy Wittman the guy to lead Wizards to the next level?

Under Wittman, first-round picks Kevin Seraphin and Trevor Booker have taken a step backward. The little-used Jan Vesely — selected sixth overall in the 2011 draft — was included in the recent trade that brought backup point guard Andre Miller to the Wizards.

Otto Porter was the first player off the bench Wednesday at Verizon Center and played a season-high 22 minutes. However, the third overall pick in June’s draft has spent most of his wasted rookie season on the bench.

Many coaches in Wittman’s situation, though, would prefer to roll with proven players. Relying heavily on guys who are learning on the job could cost Wittman his.

Still, Wittman has persuaded everyone in the locker room to buy into what the Wizards are doing. Their camaraderie was evident Monday night in how the Wizards’ bench erupted when Porter made two three-pointers in a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. You can’t fake the emotion the Wizards showed in applauding Porter, who seized one of the few opportunities he has received.
