After re-signing both Arenas and team captain Antawn Jamison this month, and adding backup point guard Dee Brown, the Wizards are between $1 million and $1.5 million under the NBA luxury tax for the coming season.

Washington Times. Huh? How did that happen? I thought we established that we had 3.4 million before signing Dee Brown. Where did all that money go? If we knew we'd have this little under the tax, we might as well have kept Bill Walker.

James Posey remains the most coveted unrestricted free agent still on the market and New Orleans is being increasingly described as perhaps the biggest threat to Boston keeping him... Washington is highly interested as well, but the Wizards have to find a way to shed a salary or two to have the financial flexibility to make a representative bid.

Marc Stein, ESPN. Nothing unexpected, but it's nice to know that Ernie at least wants him, even if we probably aren't (and really, probably shouldn't) get him.

Free agent forward Jarvis Hayes plans to sign a two-year contract with the New Jersey Nets, a league source with knowledge of the negotiations said. Hayes met with New Jersey management in Orlando, Fla., on Thursday and left confident that he’ll sign for the bi-annual exception that would pay him $4 million over two seasons.

Yahoo. Enjoy your investment, Nets fans.

Matt Barnes is on the list. I cannot believe what Barnes must go through every year. For a team that likes to run, he is a perfect complimentary piece off the bench. He is the ideal back-up combo forward for the Warriors, Suns, Knicks, Sixers, etc. He makes open shots, defends, runs the floor and does the little things. It is unbelievable to me that he has to earn a roster spot every single season.

Coach Brian McCormick. I've always considered McCormick a smart man, so this boosts Barnes up a little in my book. Aren't those the very qualities we desperately need?

Also yesterday, the Wizards signed Utah Jazz restricted free agent point guard Dee Brown to an offer sheet for a two-year, partially guaranteed deal. Utah has one week to match the offer.

Post. From my limited read on Brown, he's a good playmaker who couldn't shoot the ball into the Potomac River. Basically, he's a younger Mike Wilks. This better be for the minimum though...

The Nets have a list of about 20 names, mainly wings, and near the top is Roger Mason, a 6-foot-5 guard who averaged 8.0 points with Washington last season, when he made a minimum $770,610. Figure he'll command in the $2.5 million range.

New York Post. Considering the source, take this for what you will.

Gilbert Arenas isn't leaving Washington, despite opting out of the last year of his contract, which would have paid him around $13 million next season. Arenas and the Wizards have secretly agreed on a new multi-year deal, according to a GM friend of Washington executive Ernie Grunfeld.

New York Daily News, via Fanhouse. This doesn't strike me as remotely credible information.

One day after stating that he planned to wait until the June 30 deadline to opt out of the final season of his contract with the Washington Wizards, Gilbert Are nas looked over his contract on Monday and discovered that it carries a provision stating that he must opt out no later than June 20.

Washington Post. This is too funny. In other news, Gilbert Arenas looked into his cabinet and discovered he didn't actually have any popcorn, and was forced instead to eat chocolate chip cookies.
