Two familiar faces will be joining the Wizards for training camp, according to Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post and J.Michael of CSN Washington. Washington has signed Toure' Murry and Ish Smith to non-guaranteed deals for the upcoming season.
Murry played four games with the Wizards late last season when the team needed some extra depth at guard. He wound up getting waived after suffering an during his second 10-day deal, which then led the Wizards to go and sign Will Bynum. He also was part of the Wizards' team in the Las Vegas Summer League but he got injured before the league began and never got a chance to play.
Ish Smith should also be a familiar name to Wizards fans, but for a slightly different reason. You may remember he was on the wrong end of one of the worst crossovers of John Wall's career when he was on the Magic:
But aside from that moment of shame, Smith has carved out a respectable career for himself after he went undrafted in 2010. He put up some really nice numbers in Philadelphia last season, averaging 16.0 points, and 8.1 assists per 36 minutes in 25 games with the 76ers last season.
The Wizards already have 15 guaranteed contracts on the books for next season, so it will be hard for either Murry or Smith to make the team, but not impossible. If nothing else, they should help the Wizards maintain a high-level of play throughout training camp and the preseason.
