As reported by Ben Mehic, the future of Kevin Seraphin as a Wizard remains uncertain this offseason. He has stated in an article written by the Washington Posts's Brandon Parker, Seraphin stated he wants to return to the Wiz, but he wants more playing time after falling down in the bench behind Nene, Drew Gooden and Trevor Booker.

Seraphin has started all four years for the Wizards and while he has improved, his post game did show signs of weakness that was exploited by opponents and forced him basically out of the rotation.

Drew Gooden is a free agent this year who has also stated he would like to return and with the knees of Nene hanging by on a thread making Wizards fans clutch their pearls everytime he jumps, insurance in a young Seraphin wouldn't be the worst thing.

But on the other hand, the Wizards could get a log jam in the post, and Wittman, who does not always go deep into his bench unit rotation, could find Seraphin as a high priced piece o furniture next to Otto Porter.

What could be the deal maker is Seraphin's appearance in international Summer ball with FIBA. Seraphin is poised to play on the French team in the FIBA World Cup. Seraphin will spend a summer alongside veterans Tony Parker, Boris Diaw,Joakim Noah and Nicolas Batum. If Seraphin has a good showing and learns a few things from the other bigs, he could show he should be permanently sustainable in the Wittman system.
