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.

Boston Globe. Perhaps this means that Ernie's intention to fill the SF role was to have signed Forbes to do it, but a bad Summer League changed his mind. Maybe that's why there hasn't been much urgency with his search.

Oleksiy Pecherov just told me that he will not play tonight against the Cavaliers or for the final two summer league games as he works to get back on that sprained left ankle. Pecherov has been shooting but hasn't practiced and said the ankle still needs more time.

Yesterday, I spoke with Marc Cornstein, the agent who represents Vladimir Veremeenko, and it appears that there is a decent chance that Veremeenko could play in summer league. Taken in the second round by the Wiz two years ago, Veremeenko is playing for Khimki in Russia (also have seen it spelled "Khimky") but could negotiate his way out of the contract all together or simply be cleared to play in summer league. Ernie Grunfeld has indicated that he would like to see Veremeenko in summer league as well so maybe something can get done. Cornstein declined to detail Veremeenko's contract situation but it appears that it is nowhere near as restrictive as the one Juan Carlos Navarro had in Barcelona before negotiating his way to the NBA last summer. At the very least, it would be good to get Veremeenko over to Las Vegas for summer league so other teams can see him. You never know, maybe some team falls in love decides to make a move for him.

Ivan with some good news on the other guy the Wizards drafted back in '06 along with O-Pec.
