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. Washington Post

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.

If a trade partner cannot be found, the team could waive the second-year guard or keep him, though the latter option is not preferred because the Wizards seek roster and salary-cap flexibility as the postseason draws near and players become available via trades and buyouts. Washington Post

The Wizards have been trying to move second-year guard Glen Rice Jr. in a trade before Jan. 10 when all contracts become fully guaranteed, CSNwashington.com has confirmed with persons with knowledge of the situation. A 48-hour window when a deal might have been struck has passed, however, which makes a trade unlikely and means he'd be released instead. CSNWashington.com
