The broken bone in his right foot has healed, and he secured a three-year extension after affirming his potential in the season's second half.

A torn ACL may keep Howard out until November, but his feisty and relentless attitude, helped change the locker room mentality last season.
3 Lester Hudson G 6-3 190 R Tennessee-Martin

6 Adam Morrison F 6-8 205 3 Gonzaga
Michael Jordan made him the No. 3 pick of the 2006 draft, and Morrison is looking for a bigger role after riding the bench for the Lakers.
55 Hamady Ndiaye C 7-0 235 R Rutgers
Ndiaye is a second-round pick acquired from Minnesota; the Wizards hope the Big East defensive player of the year will still find a job in Europe.
15 Kevin Palmer G-F 6-6 205 R Texas A&M-CC

A considerable talent and capable scorer, Thornton is expected to begin the season starting at small forward.
