"I want to compete for the playoffs," Wizards coach Flip Saunders told me Friday as he prepares for the start of training camp in a week at Verizon Center.

"If you keep injury-free and your guys progress and John (Wall) progresses, and you know Dray (Andray Blatche) is healthy the whole year, and Javale (McGee) progresses, and your rookies come along, you might have an opportunity to make a run at the playoffs," Saunders said.

Saunders and the Wizards won just 23 games last season, so he is certainly setting the bar high for the upcoming season.

"If you look at where we were at you might say, hey, that's not right, but if you look at it and really break it down and where we have opportunities to improve like limiting turnovers, those are the things that are attainable," Saunders added.
