The Washington Wizards are likely to audition a veteran point guard by way of a 10-day contract, according to a report from NBA.com.
Per the report, Ramon Sessions, Donald Sloan, Briante Weber and Derrick Rose are all potential candidates.
The Wizards are trying to fill a hole at the position following a knee injury to John Wall, who is still on crutches.
Sessions, 31, was waived by the New York Knicks earlier in the season — and the same thing happened with Weber, 25, who was waived by the Houston Rockets.
Sloan, 30, has spent time journeying around the NBA and was in training camp with the Wizards in the fall. He last played in the NBA with the Brooklyn Nets in the 2015-16 season.
Rose, 29, was traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Utah Jazz on Thursday. The Jazz waived him Saturday, and once he clears waivers Monday, will become a free agent able to sign with any team.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are also said to be showing interest in Rose.
