But according to league sources with knowledge of the situation, the Wizards have been unwilling or reluctant to part with a rotation player to make a deal happen. Chris Singleton has been shopped but hasn’t attracted much attention after averaging 3.7 points in just 14 games this season. Singleton hasn’t appeared in a game since getting three minutes against Philadelphia on Jan. 20, a string of 13 games. Washington Post

And so, please do check out this video from Saturday night of Martell Webster and a teen-aged fan, somewhere in the depths of Verizon Center’s parking garage. The fan — who, with his suburban friends, likes to greet players in the parking garage after games — mistakenly called Webster “Chris Singleton.” Webster demanded an apology. This is what he got. Here’s to more fun stories featuring winning (or at least .500) teams, and fewer transcribed interviews about teams in disarray. Maybe. For a couple days, anyhow. Washington Post

The injury bug to the Wizards' forwards leads to the obvious question about the status of Otto Porter, the No. 3 overall draft pick in June, who has yet make an impact. There's nothing new, of course, as he has yet to practice for more than two months. Coach Randy Wittman believes when he does return from his right hip flexor strain that it'll be around the same time Chris Singleton gets back in the mix from left foot/toe surgery.

Singleton said he has spoken with Wittman and understands why he isn’t playing. “He’s basically just looking for more consistency on the court. Wants my energy to be up, every time I touch the court and just go out there and play hard. Washington Post

The Las Vegas summer league, which is less than two weeks away, is currently a high priority as the team looks to fill out its roster in time for mini-camp next week. The Wizards expect to have second-year players Jan Vesely, Chris Singleton and Shelvin Mack, and recent draft picks Beal and Satoransky. Satoransky is currently under contract in Spain and would need to receive clearance from FIBA to play for the Wizards. “We have already applied for” clearance, Grunfeld said. “Whether they grant it or not, remains to be seen. You just don’t know.” Washington Post

Do you have a good idea of who will be on the summer league roster in vegas? You can probably assume that the rookies from last year - Jan Vesely, Shelvin Mack and Chris Singleton - will play. I heard Vesely is coming from the Czech Republic next month to get ready, so he's in. The three draft picks from this year will participate. Jordan Crawford has stated that he'd be willing to play, but I'm not so sure he will. Other than that, you might see Morris Almond or Cartier Martin give it go. I wouldn't count on John Wall, Trevor Booker or Kevin Seraphin, who will be getting ready for the Olympics. Washington Post

Singleton said he planned on taking the tickets, which he purchased at various locations in the area, back for redemption to see home much money he actually won. The Wizards rookie, who will earn $1.485 million this season, wrote last week on his Twitter account that he was going to take a shot at the jackpot: “I’m about to drop 10000 on the lottery and cross my fingers #halfwaytoabillionaireifiwin” He later explained to his Twitter followers that he was making an “investment” and added, “If I get richer, I will change the world for the better.” When asked about the purchase on Monday, Singleton said he had to buy tickets at different locations because they weren’t allowed to print his requested demand at once. He added that he felt he made a wise investment, even though he didn’t win. “Either that or blow it in the club,” Singleton said. Washington Post
