Sources told Ben Standig of The Sports Capitol that Gortat "won’t be on the Wizards next season."
The 34-year-old Gortat has spent the past five seasons with the Wizards. He has appeared in all 82 games in each of the past two years, but his average of 8.4 points per game in 2017-18 was his lowest in eight years.
Washington owes Gortat $13.6 million in 2018-19, the final season of a five-year contract he signed in 2014.
Per Spotrac, the Wizards are currently $23.8 million over the 2018-19 salary cap. They need to create financial flexibility if they hope to make upgrades in free agency coming off a 43-39 record last season.
The Wizards haven't made a draft pick since 2015, and their most recent first-round pick still on the roster is Otto Porter (2013).
