Video: How will Ian Mahnimi protect the paint for the Wizards?

Guest video analyst Dane Carbaugh checks in with some video scouting of the latest Washington C and how he helps on defense. The Washington Wizards lost out on Al Horford in the summer of 2016, and quickly moved to sign Pacers big man Ian Mahinmi to a 4-year, $64 million contract. The defensive minded center seems to duplicate some services alongside Marcin Gortat, but his addition to the roster could help bolster a lacking defensive effort from the Wizards in 2015-16. Washington ranked 14th in defensive rating last season, and was in the lower half of the league when it came to important...

Marcin Gortat has a giraffe and two horses. We have some questions.

Whenever life gets too confusing and I need something to help my life make sense, I always go to Marcin Gortat’s Instagram page, and he never disappoints.

Three reasons why the Wizards shouldn’t be in any rush to trade Marcin Gortat

It’s been the summer of the center for the Washington Wizards. After going all-out for Al Horford and falling short, the team moved quickly to sign Ian Mahinmi to a four-year, $64 million deal. And that was only after the team reportedly expressed interest in Joakim Noah and Zaza Pachulia. They also signed Jason Smith to a three-year, $16 million deal, signed Daniel Ochefu to a partially guaranteed deal, and offered Summer League standout Michael Eric a deal for training camp, according to J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic. Given how much the Wizards spent on improving the center position...

NBA Free Agency: Wizards interested in Ian Mahinmi, according to report

The Wizards need to shore up their depth at every position this summer, but center is arguably the most important place to have a good backup in place, since Gortat is the oldest member of Washington’s starting five next season. That said, the first center connected with the team is an interesting one. David Aldridge of NBA.com is reporting the Wizards are among the teams interested in Ian Mahinmi: Washington, San Antonio and Minnesota in the mix for C Ian Mahinmi, who won’t return to Indy next year after Pacers’ deal w/Al Jefferson.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) July 2,...
