Bringing back Antonio Daniels was an option for the Wizards to get through their ongoing injury crisis, but Earl Boykins was always Washington's front-runner to pick up some of the guard minutes vacated by injuries to Randy Foye (ankle), Mike James (hand) and Javaris Crittenton (foot) and with Gilbert Arenas playing through calf soreness this week. The Wiz wanted a good vet and someone who could push the ball and apply full-court pressure if needed. The guy who now ranks as the second-shortest player in team history -- Boykins is 5-foot-5 to Muggsy Bogues' 5-3 -- qualifies on all fronts. Boykins actually blipped onto the Wizards' radar last season, when Wiz president Ernie Grunfeld was in Italy on a scouting mission to see current Milwaukee rookie sensation Brandon Jennings. Boykins rung up 24 points and 11 rebounds for Virtus Bologna against Jennings' Lottomatica Roma squad.

Marc Stein, ESPN. I'd much rather have AD than Earl the Squirm.
