Marc J. Spears is reporting that Houston Rockets shooting guard Courtney Lee is receiving interest from the Washington Wizards.

However, they are apparently hesitant to sign another shooting guard:

We'll have more information as it comes available. Lee is a very good complementary player and would be a great fit next to Wall. He's a great defensive player, particularly on quick point guards, and a good three point shooter and passer who can finish in transition. He's basically the definition of a solid shooting guard, for better or for worse. While he'd be a good fit as a backup to Beal and occasionaly small forward, good-but-not-great role players like him tend to get overpaid in free agency (Dahntay Jones, James Posey, more likely than not eventually Arron Afflalo), but this would be a good use of money as long as the contract is for less than $4 million a year.
