Forward Jared Dudley says the Washington Wizards were one of the teams he considered before he opted in to the final year of his contract with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Dudley ended up a Wizard anyway when Washington acquired him in a trade with the Bucks for a future second-round draft pick. The deal was announced Thursday night.
Dudley said during a conference call Friday that while he "liked my situation in Milwaukee," he "can't see a situation's that's better for me right now" than with the Wizards.
Washington has signed guard Gary Neal, acquired Dudley and agreed to terms with swingman Alan Anderson, who will help replace what was lost when Paul Pierce decided to join the Los Angeles Clippers.
