NBA Rumors: Marcin Gortat open to re-signing with Wizards

Big man Marcin Gortat will be a free agent at season end and like most talented big men before him, he stands to cash in.

Will it be with the Washington Wizards? That remains to be seen but Gortat appears open to the idea of returning.

I’m going to look at a lot of different things before I’m going to pick the team, and obviously Washington is going to be really close to me right now. I feel really comfortable here. They have two rising stars in Bradley Beal and John Wall, and this team’s definitely going to get better and better.

Despite Gortat’s apparent intrigue with the Wizards youthful core, he did drop a few subtle hints suggesting that there won’t be much (if any) hometown discount and that there will be a variety of factors that determine what he does in free agency.

That said, it can only be considered good news for Wizards fans that Gortat appears open to a return.

At what cost? That we don’t know – but we’re soon to find out.
