NBA rumors: Wizards add Johnny O'Bryant

More on Johnny O'Bryant Free Agency

As for O’Bryant, he’s looking for a new employer as an unrestricted free agent. He has been working out religiously after having attended Bucks assistant coach Tim Grgurich’s camp in Las Vegas, where he did well. “We’re still exploring our options,’’ Collier said. “There are four or five teams that are showing interest. We want to get a roster spot, a guaranteed deal.’’
That won’t be easy, with most teams having already filled out their rosters for next season. But Collier believes in his client and his client believes in him and thus they aren’t going to make a rash decision and pursue some deal overseas. “Our goal is stay in the league,’’ Collier said. “Johnny has improved in each season he’s been in the NBA and he’s still young; he just turned 23 (on June 1). We have received a lot of positive feedback, so we’re staying patient. We’ll see what happens.’’
