  • Nene has made the most of his injury-limited minutes on the court, and it's helped stay competitive in games. But hasn't resulted in many wins. [Washington Examiner]
  • Kevin Seraphin is shooting a lot of long jumpers this season, but he isn't making many. [Wiz of Awes]
  • Earl Barron played well when called upon Tuesday in the second half against the Hawks. No so much when Randy Wittman inserted him into the starting lineup against the Magic. [Washington Times]

[CSN Washington]
  • Then again, if I were the Wizards GM (shut up) I might just skip the 2013 draft, trade my picks this year and every other team asset for as many likely 2014 lottery picks as possible in hopes of getting my hands on Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker, the latter of whom just committed to Duke (that's one strike against him).
