With starting point guard John Wall sidelined with a knee injury for the foreseeable future, the team is focused on landing a veteran guard via the free agent market, according to the Washington Post.
Wall underwent left knee surgery and is expected to miss six to eight weeks. The Wizards have been playing Bradley Beal at the point position in his absence.
With the #Wizards "definitely looking" to fill roster spot with a free agent soon, I keep hearing the team will focus on landing a veteran point guard.

“We’re definitely looking,” head coach Scott Brooks said Thursday. “It does definitely give us some flexibility to add a player, or now we have the flexibility to add a couple players if we need. We all know this time of the year [players] become available. Not only in the NBA but overseas.”
Derrick Rose, who will reportedly be waived by the Utah Jazz, is the most notable name on the market, although he is already drawing interest from the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Rose and Wall spent part of the summer working out together.
