Kevin Seraphin signs with Washington Wizards, reaches buyout with French team <!-- begin blogger thumbs --> <!----> <!-- end blogger thumbs -->

The Wizards roster will soon be at 12 players after first-round pick Kevin Seraphin's contract is validated by the league office in the next few days. Seraphin recently reached a buyout agreement with his French club, Cholet, with the Wizards paying $500,000 to free him from his obligations, according to his agent, Bouna Ndiaye.

Seraphin was acquired, along with Kirk Hinrich, in a draft-day deal with Chicago. As the 17th overall pick, he can sign a two-year deal worth about $2.7 million, with the Wizards holding team options for the next two years. With Josh Howard expected to sign a one-year deal Thursday, the Wizards payroll now stands at roughing $53 million, which still gives them about $5 million to fill out the roster.

Ndiaye said that Seraphin still hopes to get his work visa completed next month and plans to be in the United States for the NBA rookie transition program in Palisades, N.Y., from Aug. 17-20. Seraphin was recently cut from the French national team, as he continues to rehab from a minor knee injury suffered in May. Ndiaye said that Seraphin would likely not be in New York for the scrimmage between Team USA and France on Aug. 15.
