According to the report on NBA.com, terms of the contract have not been released.  Read the full report here.

The Wizards currently have a record of 18-46 and expect to have one of the top picks in this year's NBA Draft.

How do you feel about bringing Grunfeld back?

Who Said It: Redskins Lineman Adam Carriker On Twitter Or A Fortune Cookie?

Who Said It: Redskins Lineman Adam Carriker On Twitter Or A Fortune Cookie?

Let me start off by saying that I'm a big fan of Redskins defensive lineman Adam Carriker, specifically because I think the tweets he produces on Twitter are hilarious.

One of my favorite Carriker tweets was when he wrote on March 23 that "If you watch Godzilla backwards, it's about a dinosaur that passionately pieces a city back together before moonwalking into the sea."

Classic.

Anyway, I have noticed that occasionally Carriker tweets phrases that sound like fortune cookie sayings.

Therefore, to test this logic, I went ahead and put together this little game called "Who Said It? Adam Carriker on Twitter or a fortune cookie?"

ESPN Analyst: Colts Should Take RGIII Over Luck

ESPN Analyst: Colts Should Take RGIII Over Luck

When the Redskins traded up for the number two overall pick in the NFL Draft, everyone in D.C. assumed that Washington’s move would land them Baylor QB Robert Griffin III.

Maybe Griffin will still end up in D.C., but one ESPN analyst, Merril Hoge, thinks the Colts should take Griffin at number 1.

ESPN’s Sportscenter Twitter account sent this tweet out: “@merrilhoge just said on SC that he would take RG3 OVER Luck w/the No. 1 pick.”

Another tweet followed that read, “According to @merrilhoge, RG3 holds an edge over Luck in accuracy, arm strength & touch.”

So what if the Colts do take Griffin with the number one pick?  The Redskins would then presumably take Stanford QB Andrew Luck at number two.

If you had to choose between the two, who would you pick?

Report: Redskins Will "Do Almost Whatever It Takes" To Sign WR Vincent Jackson

Report: Redskins Will "Do Almost Whatever It Takes" To Sign WR Vincent Jackson

Just a few days after the Washington Redskins made a bold trade to acquire the 2nd overall pick in the NFL Draft, presumably to take Baylor Quarterback Robert Griffin III, the team might be poised to make yet another splash.

According to Kevin Acee, reporter for U-T San Diego, the Redskins and the Chicago Bears will both make major pushes to sign Chargers free-agent Wide Receiver Vincent Jackson, with Washington expected to be the frontrunner for Jackson’s services.

“The Chargers’ seeming resignation that Jackson will go somewhere else could be due in part to their having long been aware of a team – thought to be the Redskins – that will do almost whatever it takes to get Jackson,” Acee wrote Sunday night.

Acee noted that Dan Snyder could be poised to woo the 6’5” Wideout with a big money offer.
