​It was a relatively disappointing season for the Wizards. After pushing the Celtics to seven games in last year's Conference semifinals, the Wizards slumped through this year's regular season. They were then knocked out in the first round by the Toronto Raptors. 


However, that doesn't mean the offseason has to be disappointing too. The ​Wizards are getting a familiar face back for next season to kick things off this summer.

His option is for $3.5 million, but the team will save some money here.


Meeks was caught violating the ​NBA's drug policy. He will have to serve the remaining 19 games of a 25-game suspension.

Ouch. That's a good portion of his salary for the year.


In picking up his option, the Wizards are returning a dependable shooter and scorer to their bench. In 14.5 minutes last year, Meeks scored 6.5 points and shot 39 percent from the three-point line.


Unfortunately, they'll likely be starting their season without the 10-year veteran.
