The NBA still hasn't set its schedule, but the Wizards know where they'll hold training camp. Owner Ted Leonsis said camp will be held at Verizon Center.

Via his blog, Leonsis said the Patriot Center at George Mason University -- where camp opened last year -- isn't available, so the Wizards will be at Verizon.

"To consolidate our activities - and keep the action close to home - we will use our own facilities at Verizon Center for this shortened training camp," Leonsis wrote.

NBA camps are scheduled to open Dec. 9. Team facilities opened for players today. Though the NBA and players reached a tentative agreement to end the lockout last weekend, no deal has been ratified yet.
