Glen Rice Jr Rumors

All NBA Players

Jonathan Feigen: Rockets summer team: Will Cummings (Temple), Denzel Livingston (Incarnate Word), Glen Rice Jr. and Jaron Johnson (RGV), Christian Wood (UNLV), Clint Capela, Nick Johnson, Montrezl Harrell, Sam Dekker. Rockets “still working through some details” with D’Angelo Harrison, source said. Likely can add him to list soon.
Rio Grande Valley Vipers General Manager Gianluca Pascucci today announced that the Vipers have acquired guard/forward Glen Rice, Jr. Additionally, the team waived Tristan Carey. Rice (6’6”, 215, Georgia Tech) played with the Washington Wizards, where he averaged 2.7 ppg over the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons. He was drafted 35th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2013 NBA Draft, before being traded that night to the Wizards.
If a trade partner cannot be found, the Wizards will likely waive the second-year guard to vacate a roster spot and create salary-cap flexibility as postseason draws near and players become available via trade and late-season buyouts. If they are forced to waive Rice, the move will likely be made by Wednesday so he could clear waivers before Jan. 10, when all NBA contracts become guaranteed for the remainder of the season.

With a gluttony of wing players and limited roster flexibility, the Washington Wizards are looking to trade Glen Rice Jr. before his contract is guaranteed on Jan. 10, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Washington has already spoken to other teams about Rice, who was shipped to the D-League in late November and hasn’t played in the Fort Wayne Mad Ants’ last four games despite no reported injury.

With a gluttony of wing players and limited financial flexibility, the Washington Wizards intend to trade Glen Rice Jr. before his contract becomes guaranteed on Jan. 10, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Washington has already spoken to other teams about Rice, who was shipped to the D-League in late November and hasn’t played in the Fort Wayne Mad Ants’ last four games despite no reported injury.
Rice’s game peaked this summer alongside Porter, but when training camp opens at the end of next month they will put their summertime alliance behind them and begin competing for meaningful playing time on the wing for a team on the rise. “The minutes are there,” Porter said. “It just matters what the coach wants. So my job is to continue to work hard and everything like that so that once that opportunity comes I can take full advantage of it.”
In a good news, bad news situation, Glen Rice Jr. learned he would not leave Las Vegas empty handed moments after the Wizards were bounced from the summer league. Rice was named the Las Vegas summer league Most Valuable Player after leading all scorers with 25 points per game. He had 36 points in Washington’s triple-ovetime against San Antonio on Saturday and tallied 24 in Sunday’s 74-62 loss to Sacramento.
The Wizards have recalled rookie swingman Glen Rice Jr. after an impressive three-game stint in the NBA Development League with the Iowa Energy. He joined the team on Tuesday in Oakland, Calif., where the Wizards will take on the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. Rice was sent down the D-League for a rehabilitation assignment while recovering from a broken right wrist. Based on his production, Rice’s wrist appears to be fine as he averaged 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.7 blocks and two steals.
Glen Rice Jr. is headed back to familiar territory. The Wizards assigned the 6-foot-6 rookie swingman to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Developmental League to recover from a fractured right wrist. Rice, who has been sidelined since having surgery Dec. 17, was recently cleared to participate in full basketball-related activities. Rice has appeared in 11 games, including one start, this season for Washington while averaging 2.9 points in 10 minutes per game.
After rehabilitating all summer, Nene is back and training with the Wizards a little less than a month before training camp begins. He is joined this week by the Wizards’ key free agent acquisition, Eric Maynor. Al Harrington, who signed in August as a free agent, has yet to report because he is dealing with a family matter. John Wall, Bradley Beal, Glen Rice and Martell Webster already have been training at Verizon Center.
