Davis Bertans confirmed that he skipped the Orlando bubble to preserve his health for free agency.
"I think there were multiple reasons. Of course, one of the main ones I guess is that I was an upcoming free agent and we were put in a position as very unlikely to make the playoffs," Bertans said. "To risk an injury after not playing basketball and not really working out for almost two months [was not smart]. That was the main reason." His decision will have no impact on his market value as he'll enter free agency as one of the most sought-after players in the NBA after averaging 3.7 triples on a 42.4% clip. The Wizards turned down multiple first-rounders at the deadline so we'd expect them to be very aggressive. Sep 16 11:49 am (EST)
