NBA Free Agency Rumors: Kevin Seraphin Accepts Qualifying Offer From Wizards

The Washington Wizards have Marcin Gortat, Nene, Kris Humphries, DeJuan Blair and Drew Gooden on their roster. Well, now you could add Kevin Seraphin back on that list of big men.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Kevin Seraphin has accepted a qualifying offer from the Wizards.

It seemed like Kevin Seraphin’s time with the Wizards would be over after they acquired both Humphries and Blair, but it looks like he wanted to remain in the nation’s capital. Washington could’ve rescinded the qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent, or never even offered him the deal like they did with Trevor Booker, but instead they’ll have Kevin Seraphin on the team for at least another season.

Kevin Seraphin had somewhat of a breakout season a few years ago, but hasn’t been able to sustain it. His scoring ability has been well documented, and there aren’t too many big men in the NBA that have the post-skills Kevin Seraphin possesses, but his inconsistency has really hindered his development.

Randy Wittman has been known for yanking Kevin Seraphin out of games for his boneheaded mistakes, which unfortunately puts a damper on all the good things he does on the court, so I’m not sure why he didn’t opt to start over on a different team. Basically, it doesn’t seem like Kevin Seraphin will get much of a chance to play next season, especially with Gortat, Nene, Humphries, Blair and possibly even Gooden ahead of him on the depth chart.

He still has a lot of potential, but he’s entering his fifth season next year. Will he finally be able to contribute? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Nevertheless, Kevin Seraphin is back with the Washington Wizards.
