NBA Free Agency: Maurice Evans Returning To Wizards On One-Year Deal, According To Report

The Washington Wizards will be bringing back Maurice Evans on a one-year contract, according to multiple reports. Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner was the first person I spotted who actually wrote something on the move, while Michael Lee of the Washington Post reports the deal was for the veteran's minimum.

Evans was just a throw-in piece in the trade involving Kirk Hinrich and Jordan Crawford last February, but actually retained a bit of value, playing 27.4 minutes a game and averaging nearly 10 points a contest. On the court, he still wasn't especially productive, but at least he was good enough to be an eighth or ninth man. His real value to the Wizards, though, is off the court, where he seemed to emerge as a veteran leader in the Wizards' eyes.

The Wizards' roster is now at 18 players, including training camp invites Mardy Collins, Aaron Pettway and Mike Wilks. As Stouffer points out, though, there's still room for Nick Young if he re-signs because Larry Owens' contract is non-guaranteed.
