DeShawn Stevenson has signed with the Washington Wizards after making a poor choice by opting out of the final year of his contract with Orlando. Stevenson gave up $3m, which he would have received with Orlando this season, instead signing a 2-year deal with Washington which only pays the league minimum of $932k in his first year, with a player option for the second year.
Stevenson will act as insurance of some sorts for the Wizards, should they elect not to match the five-year $30m offer sheet that the Knicks have signed Jared Jeffries to. In yet another 'unconventional' move by Isiah Thomas, he is attempting to add a swingman -- and more salary -- to an already buldging Knicks roster.
