Wizards have interesting frontcourt now
When asked if that meant there is an open competition for starting spots entering training camp, Wittman said, “Sure it is.”
Okafor said he looks forward to possibly forming a formable, physical front line with the 6-10 Nene and with seeing how his game will work with Wall. “Before I got traded to the Hornets, I’d seen Chris play,” he said. “Then when I got to play with him, I got to see how good he was. It’s a very similar situation, where I’ve seen John Wall play.”
Ariza had actually completed playing a pickup game in Los Angeles with Wall on the day that he found out they would be teammates. He came away encouraged by what lies ahead in Washington.
