LAS VEGAS -- The decision on what to do with Jarell Eddie's non-guaranteed contract will be delayed after both sides agreed to "push" the date to the start of the regular season, league sources told CSNmidatlantic.com on Friday.
Eddie, a 6-7 guard who has shown well at summer league, is due to make $980,000 in his second season with the Wizards if his deal was guaranteed by the original deadline today.
The Wizards, however, still have moves to make to retool their roster. It seems like a risky move for Eddie now that the Wizards have extended partial guarantees to Danuel House, Sheldon McClellan and Daniel Ochefu to attend training camp. Getting part of his salary makes it worth it to do so.
Eddie seems comfortable in D.C., where he played last season when he was signed in December, and believes in his chances to stick.
