Just some free agency thoughts

I've been mulling through all the free agents still available, and one guy in particular stuck out to me. What about Evan Turner to the Wizards? He's lost a lot of value after not doing much with the Pacers, and he's still only 24 years old. He has tremendous length (think I saw somewhere his wingspan is close to 7ft!), so I don't think it would be too much of an issue having him start at small forward. He's mainly known for his offense, and is very effective at driving to the basket (something I felt the Wizards struggled at, more towards the end of games). He's a little ball dependent, but he would be able to take some pressure off John Wall and allow him to use his athleticism to open up more opportunities.

Further going on free agency, I'm thinking the Wizards will resign Booker and Gooden. This would put the Wizard with a roster composed of: PG) Wall, Miller. SG) Beal, Rice. SF) Turner (I really like the fit), Webster, Porter. PF) Nene, Booker, Gooden. C) Gortat.

This gives the Wizards one more player to dress out with the team, and three more to rid the bench. I think Rice will hold one of these spots, so lets move it to two and two, with the possibility of Otto Porter joining him (although I would like to see him get some more chances). By the looks of it, they could use a combo guard that can score off the bench and another rim protector. As these positions aren't very deep the only guys that really stood out were Jordan Crawford, Kevin Seraphin, and Ekpe Udoh. I'm not sure how much Whitman likes, Seraphin or Singleton, but it's looking like we need to keep at least one. Emeka Okafor and Andrew Bynum headline the rim protector class, and after that it dies out. Andrew Morrow also stood out a bit for me, but I feel we need a guy to pair with Andre Miller to be able to push the pace. Would like to see what you guys think about these ideas.
