The Washington Wizards are safely under the salary cap and with a complete 12-man roster, they don't really need to make any major free-agent acquisitions this summer.

NBA free-agency officially begins on Sunday and one team who probably won't be actively shopping for the available players on the market is the Washington Wizards.

The Wizards, who just drafted Brad Beal from the University of Florida on Thursday night, and traded with the New Orleans Hornets for Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza a week prior almost assures that Washington D.C. won't be a destination for free agents this summer.

Washington now has $61.06 million committed in payroll for the 2012-2013 season with the NBA luxury tax being around $70 million. Additionally, Washington has a complete roster with 12 players under contract for the upcoming season and really don't need to make any major moves.

With the dollar-for-dollar tax still in place, the team is in great shape heading into the 2013-2104 season when the luxury tax penalties are much harsher and require teams to be a lot smarter in how they spend.
