The Wizards have signed Daniel Ochefu to a three-year partially guaranteed contract according to Eric Pincus of BasketballInsiders.com:
The Washington Wizards have given Daniel Ochefu a three-year contract at minimum, $50k guaranteed this season @BBallInsiders— Eric Pincus (@EricPincus) July 7, 2016
Ochefu, a rookie center out of Villanova, is currently on the Wizards' summer league team. The guaranteed $50,000 appears to be compensation for him to attend training camp this fall.
Had heard Wizards wanted the ex-Villanova center at training camp. This would ensure at least that much. https://t.co/WFgnF82yNL— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) July 7, 2016
In addition, Ochefu received interest from other teams.
The Wizards currently have three centers on the roster including Marcin Gortat, Ian Mahinmi, and Jason Smith. With Ochefu also in the mix, the center rotation now appears to be a bit crowded. I don't expect to see Ochefu being the Wizards' starting center next season. But on the surface, perhaps Gortat could be on the trading block, even without considering the fact that Ochefu has a deal.
