Predicting Which Washington Wizards Players Will Not Be Back Next Season

Tervor Ariza, pitcured here with head coach Randy Wittman, has a player option for next season, and is one of a number of players who may not be back in Washington next season.

There always seems to be turnover in Washington. After missing the playoffs for five straight seasons, the Wizards' front office is constantly looking to shake things up in hopes of finally finding a winner.

This offseason should be no different. Eight different players could potentially not return to the roster come the 2013-14 season.

However, that doesn't mean that Washington won't make a good-faith effort to bring some of those players back, as the team tries to build a young base of players around John Wall and Bradley Beal.

The players who may not return either have player options, early termination contracts or contracts that have just run out.

Players on this list are likely to not return to the Wizards for one reason or the other. Players higher on the list are going to leave the biggest hole in the roster if they don't return to the nation's capital next season.

If a player is not on the list of players likely to be missing from Washington next season, an explanation as to why they will be back next season can be found on the "Honorable Mentions" slide.

Some of these players have made hardly any impact on the team this season, while losing some of these players could be a detriment to Washington. However, spaces on the roster will give Washington a chance to sign veterans and draft younger players that will set them up for a run at the playoffs next season.
