Report: Wizards reach deal with big man Jason Smith

With Marcin Gortat and Ian Mahinmi up front, there are not a lot of minutes at center for the Wizards left. The ones they do have are going to go to a sort of stretch five who loves the long two.

The Wizards are bringing in Jason Smith, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports.

How much of that is guaranteed is unclear.

Smith is fine as a third center, but he’s a guy who loves — I mean LOVES — the long two: Last season 65 percent of his shot attempts came from 16 feet out to the arc. He shot an impressive 47 percent on them, but that’s still a lot of long twos. He works in the pick-and-pop. He’s not a great rebounder or defender.

This is just the Magic rounding out their roster.
