VIDEO: John Wall is glad to have Marcin Gortat back in the fold in Washington
HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — Teams hunting for a quality big man on the free agent market can cross Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat off of the wish list. Gortat and the Wizards have agreed to a five-year, $60 million deal, according to multiple reports.
Gortat is one of two priority unrestricted free agents for the Wizards, who are also trying to keep Trevor Ariza in the fold (as All-Star point guard John Wall mentioned above).
Gortat played a huge role in the Wizards’ playoff run last season, averaging 13.2 points and 9.5 rebounds for a surprise team that made it to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
