First, he was given the boot by the Washington Wizards via the Amnesty Clause, and it seems like rumors the San Antonio Spurs were interested in his services may have hit the skids.

Ricky Rubio, Derrick Williams, Brandon Roy, Kevin Love and Andrei Kirilenko; that sounds like the recipe for a winning starting five right?
