The Washington Wizards appear to have their roster for the upcoming season pretty much set, as the team will retain the services of guard Garrett Temple and forward Kevin Seraphin. Temple will sign a 2 year deal at the veteran's minimum of $981,084 with a player option of slightly over $1 million for the second year, while Seraphin agreed to a $3.9 million qualifying offer. 

Temple will remain low on the team's depth chart, behind John Wall and Andre Miller at point guard and Bradley Beal and Glen Rice Jr. at shooting guard. However, the 6'6" guard is a solid defender and could see an uptick in minutes in the event of an injury or if Rice shows that he isn't ready for more minutes. The 28 year old veteran averaged 1.8 PPG last year and has career averages of 3.4 PPG, 1.4 RPG and 1.4 APG.

Seraphin will be stuck in a similar position, as he will struggle to crack the rotation behind Nene, Marcin Gortat, Kris Humphries, DeJuan Blair and Drew Gooden in Washington's suddenly crowded front court. The 6'10" forward from France has shown flashes of offensive potential, averaging 9.1 PPG in 2012-2013 and shooting over 50% from the floor last season.
