Forward Chris Singleton says this season's Washington Wizards would have been "a sight to see" — if they could have stayed healthy.

The Wizards finished 29-53, out of the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season.

But they figure the more important mark is 15-7. That was the record on those rare occasions when John Wall, Bradley Beal and Nene played in the same game.

The Wizards now have to decide if Wall showed them enough to offer the maximum-value contract that he wants, although he said this week he might take less if the team shows it is committed to winning.

The Wizards will again have a high draft pick, but players agreed that the team should add a veteran or two in free agency instead of another young player.
