Even if you did watch most games, you still might not have seen the former Chicago Bulls center because he only played in 52 games and started in just 4 of them.
It’s true that Gibson doesn’t play like he used to but he is still giving it his all.
And now he’s on the move again.
After clearing waivers, free agent C Taj Gibson has agreed to a one-year deal with the Washington Wizards, his agent Mark Bartelstein of @PrioritySports tells ESPN.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Gibson has signed a one-year deal with the Washington Wizards.
Although no one should be anticipating a lot of Gibson on the floor next season, there is a chance that he still generates some offense, defense, and imparts some veteran expertise.
Gibson Keeps Working
Gibson has been in the NBA since 2009, when he first played with the Bulls.
He was there for eight seasons and at times was putting up 13 points, 7 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks a game.
He was a reliable, strong, important part of the team but his output started to decline as age and injuries caught up with him.
He took his talents to the Oklahoma City Thunder, then the Minnesota Timberwolves, and finally the Knicks for three seasons.
During last season, he was creating 4.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, and .6 assists a game.
He only plays an average of 18 minutes a game now but that doesn’t mean he can’t help the Wizards.
The knowledge he has racked up in his more than ten years in the league is priceless and if he can help his team play as a unit that will be worth more than points on the scoreboard.
