Eric Maynor's stay with the Wizards lasted four months until he was traded Feb. 20 to the Philadelphia 76ers. There, he was gone after eight games.
It's safe to assume that before Bradley Beal is officially declared out by the Wizards for Saturday's home game vs. the Brooklyn Nets, he won't be allowed to play. Nor should he.
John Wall will have more time to get to know Drew Gooden, who now has a name plate above his locker next to the Wizards' start point guard.
The last time Drew Gooden came to Washington, four years ago when he was acquired in a trade with the Dallas Mavericks, he didn't actually suit up to play.
