FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Ted Leonsis is tempering his expectations for the Washington Wizards.
The team owner said in June that another year in the NBA lottery would be ``unacceptable.''
Now that training camp has opened, he said Thursday night that he'd find it unacceptable to finish ``with the second- or third-worst record in the NBA.''
One reason to re-examine the team's prospects is the high turnover rate. Leonsis said he finds it ``sobering'' that nearly the entire roster has changed since he bought the team in the spring of 2010.
Also, marquee player John Wall is expected to miss the first month of the season because of a knee injury.
