August 13, 2012 Wizards Miss On Meeks
Welp, so much for that pipe dream. Jodie Meeks, if you missed the news over the weekend, has signed a two year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers for a total of $3 million. This signing tugs at the heart strings of this blogger as I’d completely bought into the fact that Meeks would be the answer to all of our outside shooting woes. The fact of the matter is the Wizards, by all accounts, were not comfortable giving any more than the veterans minimum to any free gents left on the market who might have interest in joining the Wizards.
Word is that the Wiz Kids would have interest in free agent swing an Anthony Tolliver. However, it would also be at that minimum price that has been associated with this franchise in regard to free agency since the amnesty of Andray Blatche. It remains to be seen whether the Wizards will make any more moves this summer but for the time being they appear to at least be on the radar of Tolliver. After missing out on Meeks he might be our best bet at adding another threat from the perimeter to this roster.
