The Washington Wizards are on the verge of signing John Lucas III, according to sources.
Lucas would give the Wizards veteran depth in the backcourt after losing Bradley Beal to a wrist injury that will keep him out at least six weeks.

Utah Jazz guard John Lucas III wasn't just going to watch an embarrassing loss to the Houston Rockets on Monday go into the books.
As the Rockets were dribbling out the final seconds of a 124-86 victory, Lucas stole the ball an attempted to make it 36-point loss instead of 38.
But not only did fail at that, he shoved and was prepared to get into a fist fight with Rockets guard...
John Lucas III did not have an easy path to the NBA. After going undrafted out of Oklahoma State, Lucas played in Italy, Spain, China and the D-League around a couple of stints with the Rockets and Bulls. His roundabout journey to the league has given him a unusually humble perspective.

John Lucas III doesn't look the part of a third-stringer. The diminutive point guard carries himself with pride and purpose, and talks excitedly about what he and the rest of the Toronto Raptors feel that they can accomplish this season.
SCREEN WITH ENVY
This pick came late in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night’s Heat/Bulls showdown in Miami. The heat won this game 83-72 on their home-court.
LeBron’s screen looks perfectly acceptable to me, but Bulls backup point guard, John Lucas looked less that thrilled. He approached LeBron after the play was whistled dead and had to be restrained by Chicago forward, CarlosBoozer.

DUDE HAS HOPS
LeBron James had one of the best alley-oops we have ever witnessed Sunday afternoon during his Miami Heat’s matchup against the Chicago Bulls. LeBron literally jumped over John Lucas to complete the alley-oop. You can expect to see this highloght over and over again.
