HoopsHype Morris Almond rumors
The Wizards will probably seek some perimeter help in the draft and/or free agency this offseason, so Almond also knows that he isn’t assured a spot with the Wizards — or any other team — next season. “Well, you know it’s up in the air at this point,” Almond said. “I guess being a free agent, it’s just up in the air, but right now I just want to unwind and decompress a little bit from this year. No more Eastern Europe for me, but it’s a lot of options actually, so I just have to weight everything out in the coming weeks.” Washington Post
But he might want to consider quietly walking away — because based on his short stint in Washington, Almond could go down as the greatest winner in Wizards franchise history. He didn’t win a championship or anything, but the Wizards didn’t lose a game with him on the roster. “I’m not going to say anything, but we did go undefeated in the Morris Almond era. I’ll let you put two and two together,” Almond said with a sly grin. “I went undefeated. I was 6-0. Hold onto that. It’s always fun to win, under any circumstances.” Washington Post
The Washington Wizards have done excellent work in the past with their forays in the NBA Development League's player pool as evidenced by Cartier Martin once again this season. On Monday morning, following the release of Roger Mason Jr., the team has decided to make a move to the D-League once again by calling up Morris Almond. Ridiculous Upside
Almond's season in the D-League ended last weekend when his Maine Red Claws failed to make the playoffs, but sources tell Ridiculous Upside he'll get a second chance to play this season when he signs with Washington this week. Ridiculous Upside
