Jodie Meeks missed 147 games over the previous three seasons. At the conclusion of a fairly healthy season this year, he got suspended for performance-enhancing drugs. He’ll turn 31 before next season.

Think he’d like to lock into a $3,454,500 salary?

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Meeks will be suspended for the first 19 games of next season, costing him $596,686. The Wizards can deduct half that amount from their team salary for luxury-tax calculations – which might keep Meeks from getting stretched.

At this point, it’s tough to rely on anything from him on the court.
