Big win for the Wizards to start their 10-day road trip. They beat Dallas for the second time this season, 127-126. Delon Wright steal on the final play.
Avdija: 15 & 10

A 41-15-6 Luka Doncic line wasn’t enough to save the Mavs from their seventh loss in nine games. He missed a go-ahead free throw with 12.5 seconds left and then sent Washington’s Kyle Kuzma to the line. Mavs don’t get a shot off in final seconds with chance to win. – 11:07 PM

Mavs vs Wizards starting soon on BSSW. Starting for Dallas: Luka, Dinwiddie, Hardaway Jr., Finney-Smith and Powell. With Porzingis out for the Wizards, Corey Kispert returns to their starting 5 with Monte Morris, Beal, Kuzma, and Daniel Gafford. Tipoff at 7:40p. – 8:09 PM

Just saw the story of @Kyle Kuzma donating to his childhood YMCA👏👏 that brought back memories of spending days at my local Y until they kicked me out at night. Love to see guys giving back – 4:58 PM

Kyle Kuzma and Fred VanVleet are unlikely to sign extensions.
The same with Domantas Sabonis, Dejounte Murray and OG Anunoby this offseason.
The extension rules are outdated
Here is how to fix them in the next CBA espn.com/nba/story/_/id… – 1:26 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Based on recent reports it appears Kyle Kuzma and Jerami Grant are off the table in trades.
Can’t say I understand that for either team, so we’ll see if it holds closer to the deadline.
If so, Nets should be in the mix for guys like John Collins, Bojan Bogdanovic, Naz Reid, etc – 12:22 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
I wonder if the Wizards will try to re-sign Kristaps Porzingis at a number lower than his $36 million player option (3-yr, $90M?) next season that would then give them a better chance at staying under the tax if they have to pay top dollar to re-sign Kyle Kuzma who will test UFA. – 7:55 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
My read on the Rui Hachimura trade is it’s Step 1 towards something else. Obviously, clears way to re-sign Kuzma. Also, more room under tax to convert Goodwin’s deal. Just need roster spot.
The question is the picks… (1/2) – 7:15 PM
