David Stern places revised '10-'11 cap figure at $56.1 million, a boon to teams pursuing free agents.
No real surprise here, but Wiz have signed PG Shaun Livingston to a 2nd 10-day contract.
A source confirmed to FanHouse the deadline is expected to pass without Washington guard Randy Foye getting an deal done, but that has been expected for the past week.
Detroit, Washington, Houston, Cleveland, San Antonio and Boston are believed to be among McDyess' suitors. McDyess, 35, left $8 million on the table last year when he took a buyout from Denver to return to the Pistons. He would like to recoup most of that in a two-year deal, but he told Miller it was more important to be on a team with serious championship aspirations.
Linton Johnson, last seen with the Phoenix Suns, will be in training camp with the Washington Wizards.
Things are very quiet on the free agent front. Ernie Grunfeld has no doubt been working the phones exploring options but the Wiz have very limited space under that luxury tax right now and appear to be content with the roster as it is.
Kwame Brown is headed back to the Eastern Conference.
Brown's agent, Mark Bartlestein, told ESPN.com on Monday night that the former No. 1 pick in the 2001 draft has reached a verbal agreement on a new contract with the Detroit Pistons.
The contract is believed to be a two-year deal worth $8 million, with Brown -- who spent his first four seasons as a pro in Washington after being drafted by then-Wizards president Michael Jordan -- holding a player option to return to free agency after this season.
Prior to the Vegas Summer League, one NBA source said Forbes would likely be invited to the Wizards' training camp and had a shot at making the team. But after his poor performance, the source said it's doubtful he will even get the invitation. Forbes said he has nothing lined up overseas and hasn't considered playing in the NBA Development League.
Among the teams showing interest in former Cavs guard Devin Brown are Dallas, New Orleans, Denver and Atlanta. To a lesser extent, both Miami and Washington have made contact with Brown's representatives.
Brown played a team-high 78 games for the Cavs last year, which included 20 starts. He averaged 7.5 points.
The Warriors have until Friday to match the offer [for Kelenna Azubuike], but two NBA sources said they will not because they signed forward Maurice Evans, who split time between the Lakers and Orlando last season, to a three-year, $6.4 million deal.
