(10/5/2013) Wizards forward Kevin Seraphin spent time doing individual workouts with head coach Randy Wittman and his staff during the offseason to work on his post game, reading double teams and his defensive rotations, Comcast SportsNet Washington reports.
"We're trying to help him on defense," said his teammate Nene. "The assistant coaches talk to him, Al (Harrington), myself, and the other guys. We give him advice on defense . … (He needs to) have that read automatic in a game. That's what he needs to practice. He needs to put in his mind. He needs to visualize it to use during the game."
Seraphin could step up and see some additional minutes to start the season while Omeka Okafor recovers from a herniated disc. He averaged 9.1 points and 4.4 boards while shooting 46.1 percent from the field last season.
