Lopez averaged 9.0 points and 3.8 rebounds per game in 71 appearances last season for the Washington Wizards on a $7.3 million salary.
I’m not surprised that there was going to be some player movement in the center position, but I also hoped that they would keep Lopez or Alex Len as a veteran post. Instead, the Wizards will be with a center rotation that includes Thomas Bryant, who missed most of last season due to a knee injury, and Daniel Gafford, who was a midseason trade acquisition and a cult favorite among Wizards fans.
Do you feel that the center position is fine with just Bryant, Gafford and perhaps Montrezl Harrell as part of a small-ball lineup? Or are you feeling a bit anxious at this position? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
