Gee: “It was a big decision”


Recently Alonzo Gee was waived by the San Antonio Spurs but has since signed on with the Washington Wizards. However, prior to joining the Spurs last season, Gee played with the Wizards and showed he can play at the NBA level.

Now that he has now rejoined the Wizards, Gee reflected on his decision and his time with the Spurs.

“It was a big decision,” Gee said on Monday after rejoining the Wizards when his stint with the Spurs ended with him getting waived last week. “I thought about it, because going to the Spurs, they was going to the playoffs. It was giving up playing time and sitting. I had to think about it.”

But Gee saw the benefit in going to San Antonio. “Just how they approach the game, how everything is serious, everything is family like,” he said. “It’s just a great organization.”

Gee just never got an opportunity to play, which led him back to the first organization that provided him an NBA platform. “I didn’t know what was going on. But like I said, I’m glad to be here,” Gee said. “It’s over with and I got to get ready for the game” against Philadelphia on Tuesday. (source

Though Gee did not have much of a chance to crack the rotation in San Antonio, he has proven he can play at the NBA level and will have a great opportunity to show this in Washington. Last season with the Wizards, he averaged 7.4 points and 3.0 rebounds in 11 games, scoring a career-high 19 points.
