Grunfield: Says our Roster is Set with the 7 players we have


I just listened to Ernie's remarks right after the lottery.

http://www.nba.com/wizards/video/2011/05/17/Unsaved1mp4-1707264/index.html

He said with the 7 players we have under contract we will not be drafting for need. He specifically pointed out HIS Starting 5 and because of the 7 players we have that drafting for need will not be necessary.
1- John Wall

2- Jordan Crawford

3- Rashard Lewis

4- Andray Blatche

5- Javale McGee

The other two under contract are Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin.

He left no opening saying the Wizards have no pressing need in any particular position. He said we have all our positions filled with the 7 players under contract right now. He did not mention any team free agent by name (Nick Young) but just said we have some free agents we want to bring back.

I think Ernie will take the best player on the board, especially with a weak draft you do not have room for error. If someone gives Nick Young an incredible restricted free agent offer (which I totally expect) I would not be surprised if we let him go and then draft a point guard for a new 3 guard rotation with John and Jordan.
