Report: Wizards re-signing Thomas Bryant to three-year, $25 million contract
Thomas Bryant was a rare bright spot in the Wizards’ dreary season.
They’ll keep him around.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Bryant spent much of last season as Washington’s starting center. He could retain that role with Dwight Howard a huge unknown.
The 21-year-old Bryant plays with a lot of energy. He creates opportunities at the rim by running hard, and he converts them.
But he’s also deficient as a defender and team rebounder. A silver ling: He’s active defensively. If he improves his awareness and focus on that end, he could turn into an acceptable defender.
That’ll largely determine whether this contract is worth it.
