John Wall rubs his scraggly beard and hops on the pool table in the players' lounge of the Verizon Center, his languid, 6-foot-4, frame unfolding as he leans back. "Shoot," he says. All right. Where would you be if the NBA never worked out for you -- the money, the fame, the whole package? "I'd probably be in the streets or in jail," he responds, emotionless. The 24-year-old All-Star point guard sits upright and thinks on it some more. "A lot of people in the league will say that. But this really was my escape," he explains. "Without basketball, that's where I was going. No sense lyin' about it or comin' up with somethin' that sounds good. I was going down the same road as my dad." ESPN.com

Backup center Kevin Seraphin is in demand (see the Minnesota Timberwolves who have tried to get him already) and their best asset to execute a trade but he's doubtful to go anywhere. First, he signed a qualifying offer which means he can veto any move for one year. Second, Seraphin is their best back-to-the-basket big man on the second unit and moving him, even with his consent, for a perimeter player makes little sense unless there's another move on the table to fill that void.

The Wizards are looking for a play-making guard to join Andre Miller on the second unit, league sources say. But Washington is more likely to scour the buyout and overseas markets to fill that role rather than give up an asset to get one in a trade. CBSSports.com
