UPDATE: Michael Lee confirms the news and says the Wizards let him walk "because it does not want to tie up cap room" to him. Really? Does EG realize Gee left because the Spurs offered him a non-guaranteed deal for next year? Is he serious?
UPDATE: Schroeder has received confirmation that Gee has indeed signed back with the Spurs. Ernie Grunfeld and company have some major explaining to do if true.
A source tells Scott Schroeder that the Spurs have offered Alonzo Gee a contract that would keep him with the Spurs for the rest of the season, as well as give him a nonguaranteed deal to training camp next year.
Just to clarify (I double-checked this with Scott too), the Spurs have merely offered this to Gee. Gee hasn't signed anything yet. However, this line is ominous.
While it seems Washington hasn't made an effort to sign Gee for the season at this time, there is the slight possibility that they could make a last-ditch attempt to reward the rookie for his efforts.
It would be a major disappointment if the Wizards let Gee get away.
Gee's second 10-day contract expired yesterday.
