Who might Washington grab with a potential Disabled Exception?
Martell Webster's season-ending hip surgery may allow the Washington Wizards to sign another player with the Disabled Exception.
As of this writing, the NBA has yet to grant the resource Washington's way, but if/when they do, here's a list of possible options, per SB Nation's Bullets Forever:
It's an interesting group, with no names that could reasonably make that big of a bottom-line difference. But you never know, and a healthy contributor is worth more than someone who won't be able to walk pretty soon.
This time of year, it's tricky to find players because most players who aren't in the NBA are already locked up with teams overseas. Of the players that are left, the Wizards have their choice of players who are at the tail end of their careers and too proud to go overseas for a cash grab — guys Carlos Boozer, Samuel Dalembert, Reggie Evans, Jason Maxiell, Chuck Hayes, etc — who would provide some nice name recognition, but wouldn't really solve the Wizards frontcourt issues. Or, as Ben Mehic of Wiz of Awes suggests, the Wizards could go after wing players such as Chris Douglas-Roberts or Austin Daye to fill the void.
