The Washington Wizards are a team destined for the playoffs this year. They’ve got themselves in position to be competitive now and into the future. Here are six 2014 free agents who could help them be competitive for many years to come.

Trevor Booker has developed to become a solid player off the bench and in a temporary starting role. He averages seven rebounds and seven points per game, so he gives them quality minutes. Compared to others, he’ll be relatively cheap to re-sign.

Expect the Cleveland Cavaliers to give Luol Deng an expensive contract, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea for the Wizards to at least give him a call. Small forward becomes less and less of a need each game with Trevor Ariza’s sharpshooting, but exploring options is never a bad idea.

Zach Randolph has a player option attached to his contract that he can exercise to become a free agent. While I don’t see why he would want to leave the up and coming Memphis Grizzlies, bringing him to D.C. would be great for the Wizards.

3. Marcin Gortat

The Wizards traded with the Phoenix Suns for Marcin Gortat at the beginning of the season and certainly look to be the winners in that deal. Gortat has played extremely well, especially in the absence of Nene Hilario. Washington should be looking to bring him back for next season

One of the biggest names in this year’s free agent class, Chris Bosh has an early termination option that he could exercise to hit the open market. Bosh won’t be cheap, but he could really help solidify the paint area for the Wizards.

Marcin Gortat will be a free agent at season’s end and that will leave quite a void in the middle of the paint. They can either re-sign Gortat, which would be more cost efficient, or go out and snag the better all-around player in Greg Monroe.
