2. Washington Wizards
The Wizards are open for business, as Michael Winger is not exactly shy about the fact that he is trying to bottom out and be as bad as possible to get in the Matas Buzelis and Ron Holland sweepstakes. Their backup point guards could be up for sale.
Monte Morris has already been dealt away, and the consistent Delon Wright might be next on the chopping block. If the Raptors attach some second-round draft compensation to Boucher in order to get off his contract, the Wizards might be interested enough to get a deal done.
The Toronto Raptors and Wizards should discuss Chris Boucher.
Boucher may not be a double-digit scorer with Toronto, but perhaps the Wizards might give him a larger diet of shots than a Raptors team that was indebted to their starting lineup. If nothing else, Boucher can be a backup for Kyle Kuzma and one of the first guys off the bench.
The Wright trade might be the best move for the Raptors if they want to kill two birds with one stone and trade Boucher to improve their backcourt depth. The Wizards will let Boucher shoot, which could help the veteran earn one last big payday in the NBA if he stands out.
