"We need to help our bench," Wall told CSN Mid-Atlantic. "Just to be honest, that was our downfall in each series that we had in the [Eastern Conference] semifinals, our bench got out-played."
To improve the bench, the Wizards will use the draft, free agency and possibly trades. But will Wall help management recruit free agents to the Wizards?
"I don't think I have to do that," Wall said. "They understand and see what we do as a team over here: how we play together, how we move the ball. I think guys will just come if they want to come."
The Wizards are expected to offer restricted free agent Otto Porter Jr. a max or near-max contract in July, which will push the team close to and maybe over the projected $121 million tax line. This limits what the Wizards can offer free agents as they will only have available the veteran minimum and "Taxpayer" exception worth $5.19 million.
Wall is signed through the 2018-19 season and may hold off on signing a lucrative extension to see if management can bring in more talent, which will give the Wizards a better chance to get to the Eastern Conference finals next season.
