Vasquez enjoyed a successful NBA career, the high point coming when he averaged 13.9 points and nine assists for New Orleans in 2012-2013. But a major ankle injury suffered during the 2015-2016 season has sidelined him since. He hasn’t given up hope on playing again. “You know, I’m not healthy-healthy yet, but I’m getting there,” he said. “I want to play again. Even if it’s not in the NBA, I want to play again.”

In a recent interview with Baltimore's 105.7 The Fan, former Terps guard Greivis Vasquez said of possibly playing for Washington: "That's the plan." Vasquez is currently a free agent. “Hopefully they’re interested, obviously they want to see me healthy," he said. "I’m still in the process of rehabbing, but that would be a great thing for my career, just play the next three or four years in D.C. and help that team, because I know I can help any team, but D.C. is a special city for me. I could go back to a city that’s done so much for me in my college career, so we’ll see what happens.”
Neil Dalal: Greivis Vasquez on potentially playing for the #Wizards: "That's the plan." Says playing "next 3 to 4 years in DC" would be a "great thing."

How was your departure from the Brooklyn Nets? Greivis Vasquez: It was very difficult. The opportunity was there, but I needed this surgery. The best part is that I had the surgery at the right time. I didn’t wait that long. Once I felt the pain, I searched for and found the solution. I had surgery in November. Had I done this at the end of last season, I think I would have lost credibility. The Nets supported me big time. They were very professional, very ethical and responsible regarding my situation. Actually, I’d like to go back to Brooklyn and play for them. We’ll see how things work out. I have a lot of respect for them.
Have you noticed the change in the direction of the Nets? It seemed chaotic before Sean Marks came in. Greivis Vasquez: Yes, I have. Sean Marks is young, but he knows what he is doing. He is very smart. I have confidence in his work, regardless of whether I return to the team or not. The same goes for coach Kenny Atkinson. He is an amazing person. He has a great staff. They are doing things really well. Although the results do not yet show, sometimes you have to take two steps back to move forward. His strategy is really smart. They offered contracts to important players, but unfortunately their teams matched the offers. On top of that, Jeremy Lin got injured. They are laying the foundation for future success. Sean Marks will not stand pat. He will try again this summer, and the Nets will be a winning franchise again.

The Vasquez move was first reported by the Vertical. The contract will be for one year and $5 million, a league source told The Post.
Greivis Vasquez told The Journal Times he hasn’t made any commitment to staying with the Bucks and will consider signing with another team once the free agency period begins on July 1. “It wasn’t the year I wanted; the injury set me back,’’ Vasquez said. “But I can control my destiny now with the fact I’m almost 100 percent. I feel much better. We’ll see what happens. It’ll be an interesting summer.’’
Vasquez, a full-time starter for just one season in his eight-year pro career that included stints with Memphis, New Orleans and Sacramento, was then asked if he’d prefer remaining in Milwaukee. “It’s a very classy franchise here; they gave me all the tools and got me to the level that I’m now, so I’m thankful,’’ Vasquez said. “But I’ll be a free agent; obviously, you got to explore things.’’
