The Wizards signed Price to a one-year contract before the 2012-13 season for the role of John Wall's backup. That role morphed initially into a starting gig because of Wall's knee injury. Turned out that his role ended on April 17 in Chicago where Washington played its final game with Price ironically leading the team in scoring.
The team returned to D.C., the organization held exit interviews with players.
"I left here thinking I was coming back," Price said on Tuesday, back in the building where the five-year veteran had his best professional season. The engaging guard didn't return for kicks, but as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves, who sought backcourt depth this offseason.

Tonight was a huge test for this Timberwolves team. A week ago this squad went into Staples Center and almost defeated the Los Angeles Clippers, formally known as Lob City. This wasn't just a big test for this Wolves squad, but also for Minnesota point guard Ricky Rubio as he faced off against Chris Paul for the second time this season. A test that was failed, both by the Wolves...

The Timberwolves came out blazing in the first half. The Wizards got down to business in the second half. Washington broke a four-game losing streak with a much-needed win against a pretty good Minnesota team.
Washington shot 48.2% from the floor, and tallied 41 rebounds, 31 assists on 41 baskets, 10 steals, 11 turnovers and 5 blocked shots. All five Washington...

Washington was short-handed, but valiant. No Trevor Ariza (hamstring). No Al Harrington (knee). Unfortunately, the guys who remained had no answer for Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving. Irving scored nine of his game-high 41 points in overtime to lead Cleveland to a win at Washington.
Washington shot 39.8% from the floor, and garnered 47 rebounds, 22 assists on 37 baskets...
We’re 15.85% through the season and I was surprised by this. It feels like it just started because, well, it still sort of has. But midway through the third quarter in tonight’s match-up with the Brooklyn Nets, our Timberwolves will be one sixth of the way through the season. So that’s a perfect excuse to examine […]The post 1/6 Season Review – Minnesota Timberwolves appeared...

It’s tough to be a Cavalier fan these days. Real tough. They could very well be the worst team in all of the Association. Sure, their 4-8 record puts them only a half game behind Detroit for the 8 seed, but as I sat in The Q and looked up to see The Diff read -26 against a 3-7 Wizards team coming off a back to back while the Cavs had just enjoyed three days off I found it hard...
