Marcin Gortat opened up for the first time since agreeing to a five-year, $60 million contract extension with the Wizards about why he chose to return to D.C.
"A lot of different reasons," Gortat said, when asked why he elected to stay with the Wizards. "First of all, I like the city. I like the team. I definitely feel comfortable over there... I definitely love the chemistry between me and John Wall. I think Bradley Beal is going to be a great player one day. Coach Randy [Wittman] believes in me, and I have a great relationship with him. So, the decision was real easy for me. I believe that we will be a special team for the next four or five years." Gortat had a great year with the Wizards last season, averaging 13.2 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks a game, while shooting 54.2 percent from the field. With little changing to the Wizards frontcourt, one could expect similar results for next season. Jul 6 - 9:11 AM
