The Washington Wizards will bring back reserve big man Kevin Seraphin and guard Garrett Temple next season, according to Yahoo Sports:

Seraphin averaged 4.7 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 10.9 minutes per game last season, making 53 appearances for the Wizards and shooting 50.5 percent from the floor. Temple played in 75 games, but only averaged 8.5 minutes, scoring 1.8 points per game. 

Neither figures to see an increased role next season. Seraphin's chances of breaking into the rotation are hurt by the recent additions of Kris Humphries and DeJuan Blair. Temple is still behind John Wall and Andre Miller at point guard, and Glen Rice Jr. will likely be in line for more minutes behind Bradley Beal at shooting guard.
