John Wall ready to recruit Kevin Durant to Wizards

There’s nothing more important the Wizards can do this season to lure Kevin Duran than have a good season.

But that alone won’t get Durant to D.C. in free agency next summer.

A little love from the Wizards’ top player could help.

John Wall, via CSN Mid-Atlantic:

There’s going to be an opportunity to where you have an opportunity to throw a pitch at him and to try to get him to come back home. But I know one thing of just knowing him, he’s really going to be very focused on taking care of Oklahoma City Thunder this season, and I’m going to be focused on taking care of the Washington Wizards. But when the time is right and he can get away from all that, yeah, we’ll probably do have some conversation and throw your pitch.

Durant will have many players recruiting him, including Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks. So, I doubt Wall puts Washington over the top.

But the Wizards don’t want to fall behind. Wall can at least help them remain in contention.

Every little bit helps.
