The Washington Wizards should definitely target Gabe Vincent in free agency

The starting point guard of the Miami Heat, Gabe Vincent, went undrafted and is now in his fourth year of NBA action. While his regular season stats may be underwhelming, he has risen to the challenge in the postseason and has been nothing short of excellent.

In his 17 games of action in the playoffs, Vincent is averaging 13.1 points and 3.9 assists per game while shooting 39% from beyond the three-point arc. He has been a huge scoring spark for his team and has done a great job running the offense as well.

He also features some crafty moves both as a ball handler and around the rim, finding ways to make tough shots almost at will. This is something that the Wizards have lacked outside of Bradley Beal who is far better off the ball than he is as the initiator of the offense.

Unless the Wizards draft a point guard in the draft, which is incredibly likely, Vincent would likely get the starting nod, which would be great for helping Beal play more sets as a spot up shooter. If the Wizards do draft a point guard, he is also fantastic off the bench and could give a much needed scoring spark off the bench as well.

The biggest issue with potentially signing the free agent guard is the fact that he is likely going to ask for somewhere north of $15 million which may be out of the Wizards’ price range.

The Washington Wizards could use any of these players as they all fit the current roster almost perfectly. These are all players who clearly have extensive playoff experience and have done their jobs at the highest level.
