LAS VEGAS --With the Wizards matchng the Brooklyn Nets' offer sheet of $106 million, that brings the roster to the regular-season maximum of 15 with one spot remaining for a "two-way" contract.
They've already given a two-way deal to forward Michael Young, an undrafted free agent.
The Wizards like to be three-deep at each of the five positions though some players are hybrids:
Based on this, there are no roster spots open. Mac and Ochefu, however, are playing on non-guaranteed deals and could be released at anytime before early January without penalty.
If that scenario were to unfold, the opening would be filled likely by a veteran playing for the minimum because the Wizards are in the luxury tax and have to get below it by the end of 2017-18 to avoid paying it.
The only opening that remains at the moment is the second two-way contract that'll pay between $75,000-$275,000. Danuel House and Devin Robinson appear to have the best chance at such a deal from the group at Las Vegas summer league but Jared Cunningham has pushed his way into that discussion, too.
The biggest question remaining for the Wizards is what they'll do, if anything, with their bigs Gortat and Mahinmi. There's duplication in the middle and neither can stretch the floor so if a roster spot is created that'll be the likely place to trim.
