Michael Lee with more on the Alonzo Gee mess

Says the Wizards wanted him, but literally wanted to hold on to 100 percent of their cap room (despite the fact that Gee would cost virtually nothing) to make a big splash. They figured they could deal with Gee later this summer and didn't anticipate another team entering the market. So maybe they didn't literally forget about him, but this indicates they clearly didn't do enough preparation in understanding the market. They also demonstrated a lack of creativity in literally not budging one bit from their "no free agents no matter how cheap they'll be" credo. Again, even the most generous offer Gee could have gotten would have done virtually nothing to affect the Wizards' cap room. And as far as not having space for him at small forward: only one small forward is under contract next year, and Gee would have cost the equivalent of a 12th man. In other words, this only reinforces what I wrote yesterday. The front office's apparent thought process on this issue is fatally flawed.
