The bigs for the Wizards aren't a problem in terms of volume. They have them but it's a question of what to do with them all and where -- or if -- Daniel Ochefu can find a place going into his second season.
Signed as an undrafted free agent on a non-guaranteed minimum, Ochefu stuck because the Wizards had to get a big body available behind Marcin Gortat due to knee injuries to Ian Mahinmi.
And when Mahinmi came back, that eliminated any real chance of Ochefu logging meaningful time on a team that was in the chase for the No. 1 seed with a month left in the season.
Ochefu is a true center on a roster in which Markieff Morris and Jason Smith play at the five spot when a stretch option is preferred.
The skinny: 1.3 ppg, 1.2 rpg, 44.4% FG shooting; 19 appearances.
Best game: April 12 regular-season finale at the Miami Heat. It was a game that the Wizards conceded before it began by resting starters with their playoff fate already determined. Ochefu played a season-high 17 minutes with eight points and three rebounds.
Weak spots: It's difficult to get a read given how sparingly Ochefu played, but he's actually advanced defensively considering his experience level. Offensively, that's where he has the most room to grow. His moves aren't polished.
Fixes: Playing time is the obvious one, and it could be easier to find if he sticks and Mahinmi maintains his health. With two healthy, veteran bigs the Wizards can be more comfortable with sending Ochefu to D-League to get in reps.
Next step: He'll be at Las Vegas summer league next month. Given that Ochefu is the most affordable big on the roster, any progress he makes creates options.
