Nicholson made the move from Orlando after the Magic picked up Oklahoma City’s Serge Ibaka and Toronto’s Bismack Biyombo during free agency. Orlando signed Biyombo yesterday for four years and $70 million.
Nicholson joins a Wizards team that features point guard John Wall and freshly re-signed Bradley Beal. The shooting guard Beal signed a five year $128 million deal.
The Wizards have also picked up some other pieces this offseason, including Pacer’s centre Ian Mahinmi, and Utah’s Trey Burke.
Nicholson, a Mississauga native and St. Bonaventure product, will look to add versatile depth to the Washington bench, and will most likely fill in for big man Markieff Morris.
