Washington Wizards sign Drew Gooden to 10-day contract

The Washington Wizards were the team that relieved point guard Andre Miller from his situation n Denver and the team has now added another veteran stud in forward Drew Gooden. Washington announced this week that they had signed Gooden to a 10-day contract to help fill in and see if he is a fit.

Per The Washington Post:

The Wizards have agreed to terms with veteran big man Drew Gooden on a 10-day contract, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation. Gooden is expected to arrive in Washington on Tuesday night and will sign a contract before practicing with the team at Verizon Center. He will then join the Wizards for their two-game road trip through Toronto and Philadelphia.

Gooden last played with the Milwaukee Bucks and he’s coming to Washington in large part because the Wiz just lost Nene to an injury. While not season ending, losing Nene means losing a big body on defense which is why Gooden was brought in.

In addition to being a more than serviceable big man, Gooden brings veteran spunk and personality that should rub off well on the Wizards still impressionably young team.
