The Washington Wizards are still very much players in the NBA's free agency this summer. After learning that they have been ruled out of the Kevin Durant sweepstakes, they have decided to focus their efforts on other players.

One of their prospects is 6-10 forward Ryan Anderson.  Anderson is a dead eye shooter and would give the Wizards a much needed boost on the perimeter.

Anderson, although deadly from the outside, has struggled with his health for the better part of his career, playing an average of 60.5 games a season over 8 years.

Last season Anderson played 66 games averaging 17..0 points per game, 6.0 rebounds per game, shooting .427 from the field, and .33 from three-point range in just 66 games before injuries.

Anderson would likely be paired with Markeiff Morris in place of Jared Dudley.

Anderson has other teams targeting his shooting abilities and he will command more than his current $8 million dollar salary to play with the Wizards next year.
