Wizards pick up options on 4 Rookies, extend Qualifying Offers to 4 more

119

From Michael Lee: The Wizards have picked up the third-year options on rookies John Wall, Jordan Crawford, Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin. They also extended qualifying offers for restricted free agents Nick Young, Hamady Ndiaye, Othyus Jeffers and Larry Owens. Picking up the options on the 4 rookies is just a formality.... and extending QA's to Nick Young and Hamady Ndiaye is not a big surprise either... But kudos to Othyus Jeffers and Larry Owens - who both deserve a shot at making the team this year. Is anyone surprised that the Wizards haven't extended a qualifying offer to Yi?
