The Houston Rockets withdrew their qualifying offer to two-guard Courtney Lee, making him an unrestricted free agent. Lee is a capable and effective guard who could fit well with the new duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal. And Marc Spears of Yahoo! reports that Ernie Grunfeld and Washington are one of several teams now interested in Lee, via @SpearsNBAYahoo:

The Wizards have not been terribly busy during this first week of activity, but Lee can be a contributing piece who certainly won't be the most expensive player on the market. He has played for three teams in career, most notably bursting on the scene during the playoffs of his rookie campaign with the Magic before stops with the Nets and Rockets.
