Barring a major roster overhaul that creates room for Kevin Seraphin and a bump in salary, his time with the Wizards, who acquired him in a trade five years ago on draft night, will end.
Now that the Wizards' season is over, and the NBA draft is next month with a No. 19 overall pick, the bigger picture is the offseason.
The Wizards front office has some decisions to make, as well as some of their players.
At the worst possible moment, Wizards center Marcin Gortat apparently fell victim to food poisoning and almost was a late scratch in Friday's 94-91 Game 6 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
The more Paul Pierce talks, the more he sounds like a man who is headed towards retirement rather than exercising his player option for a second season with the Wizards for 2015-16.
