Default Wizards want John Lucas, Kirk Hinrich in free agency

Washington Post:

According to league sources with knowledge of the situation, the Wizards contacted Bulls free agent guard John Lucas III and even former Wizard Kirk Hinrich of the Atlanta Hawks, among others.

Grunfeld said the team is in no rush to make additions to the 12-man roster. “We just have to see how everything shapes together. There is a domino effect, everybody is waiting for the big prize, the big catch.”

But even if they had instead bought out Lewis for $13.7 million – as the Hornets did on Saturday – the Wizards wouldn’t have been in position to make any significant signings. Paying Lewis not to play for them would’ve only left about $3.5 million – and potentially five roster spots to fill.

As it stands, the Wizards have about $59.5 million committed next season, with about $3.4 million going to recent draft pick Bradley Beal. The team plans on keeping second-round pick Tomas Satoranksy, a 20-year-old combo guard from the Czech Republic, in Europe for another year or two.

John Lucas III has a spot in the Bulls rotation so he wouldn't came to the team in the rebulding situation when he'd has the same role as he has now in the Bulls that he can fight for the ring with.Kirk Hinrich has an experience with the Wizards (not good),so I think he wouldn't like to come back.

If I was WAS, I would rather have JL3 than Kirk.
