When free agency opens, the bigger names or priorities for teams get taken care of first before working their way down the list.


Free agency opens in less than 24 hours, and the Wizards don't have a lot of wiggle room. Aside from the bi-annual and mid-level exceptions, they also have a pair of trade exceptions.

Confidence never has been lacking with Dez Wells, who went undrafted Thursday night but will join the Wizards for Las Vegas summer league next month.
