The Wizards showed interest in trading for Jameer Nelson, which isn’t surprising given the state of affairs behind John Wall in Washington.

Andre Miller is losing playing time to Garrett Temple – a sign that both the 38-year-old Miller isn’t engendering much faith from Randy Wittman and the Wizards need another backup point guard.

Ramon Sessions was reportedly available, but that was before the Kings hired George Karl.

Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee:

The Wizards can fit Sessions into a trade exception, but would take them over the luxury-tax line. Sessions probably isn’t worth that cost.

If they can get Sessions without surrendering much or paying the tax, the Wizards probably would. But given Karl’s faith in the point guard, it would probably take more.

Getting by with Temple and Miller isn’t the end of the world. Besides, Wall can play heavy minutes in the playoffs.
