Randy Wittman's pregame address was lengthy, but full of platitudes. On trades, he said that he understands the team trying to get better and tells his players to try not to see rumors as a distraction. He also said that while he is kept in the loop on moves, he added that "you guys hear a lot of what I hear. A lot of it turns out to be a lot of talk and not a lot of substance." He was also asked about Jordan Crawford and reiterated that he's looking to see Crawford fight his way back into the rotation.

Otherwise, the only news is that Bradley Beal has regained his starting spot over Garrett Temple. When asked if there would be changes in the bench rotation, Wittman coyly smiled and said, "You'll see."
