Sorcerers will miss Bertans if they try to finish off the postseason
The Washington Wizards are 24-40, but are ninth in the east, just 5.5 games from a playoff spot.
However, their playoff chances had only one blow when David Bertans announced that he would not be rejoining the team to restart the NBA season.
Bertans had a breakout season and is Washington’s second-best scorer with an average of 15.4 points per game. He is an excellent shooter and can shoot 6:10 over the top of the defenders. He hit 42.4 percent of his attempted 3-pointers. He already made 200 3 points in 54 games before the season was interrupted.
The 27-year-old is set to become a free agent after this season, and his big season should bring him a big order. He has already suffered two ACL injuries, so his decision to stay is not too surprising.
The wizards have publicly supported Bertans and are certainly one of the teams that will be interested in signing him up as a free agent. This season, the wizards’ difficult path to the postseason became even more difficult.
