J. Michael: There's a chance more moves happen tonight. Stay tuned. But Garrett Temple should be locked up shortly #WizardsTalk #NBA Twitter @JMichaelCSN

But Tuesday night, as the Wizards continued to make moves such as acquiring Kris Humphries in a trade, re-signing Drew Gooden and securing Paul Pierce in free agency over the weekend, CSNWashington.com has been told Harrington intends to play 2014-15. CSNWashington.com

As the Wizards exited the court, the Utah Jazz took center stage and did so hours after their organization agreed to terms with the free agent forward. Booker spent his first four NBA seasons in Washington. He’ll spend at least the next two in Utah after agreeing to a reported two-year, $10 million offer. “They wanted me,” Booker said about the Jazz during an exclusive interview with CSN. “We had a meeting Sunday. It went well. I liked them, they like me. “Washington, I don’t know what happened with that, but I’m definitely happy with my new team.” CSNWashington.com

The Wizards splurged on Martell Webster last summer in part because Fegan represents both Webster and John Wall, per several league sources. This is not an uncommon thing; the Cavaliers may soon experience it with Thompson. Grantland

The Wiz didn’t have Paul Pierce in the bag when they drew a line in the sand on Ariza, but they had intel that Pierce would be amenable to moving after the Jason Kidd fiasco, per sources familiar with the situation.
