Here are today's Washington Wizards links.

  • Randy Wittman spoke to the media yesterday and talked about how he doesn't want the Wizards to feel like they're surprising people this year. I really liked that quote. [Washington Post | Washington Examiner | Washington Times]
  • He does have to get a little more creative with that training camp theme, though. [Us]
  • Wittman also talked a lot about John Wall and how he needs to step up. Move along, nothing to see here. [CSN Washington]

  • If Nene's foot injury carries over into the regular season, it will give Emeka Okafor more of an opportunity to play. [Washington Examiner]
  • A really good FanPost from yesterday on whether Trevor Booker should be the Wizards' defensive stopper on the perimeter. There were some really good arguments made here. However, I also agree with Jheiser3 that there really isn't such thing as a defensive stopper anymore. [FanPost]
  • Nick Young said he was "shocked" that he ended up with the 76ers. Doug Collins also said he thinks Young can win Most Improved Player. Not holding my breath on that. []

  • Bad news for the Grizzlies: Darrell Arthur is out 4-6 weeks. [StoryStream]
