Washington Wizards Coach Scott Brooks recently described his versatile forward Andrew Nicholson as the “man with a thousand moves.” But Nicholson is not a man of a thousand words. “He’s very, very quiet,” Marcus Thornton said, expressing a sentiment that center Jason Smith, who spent the 2015-16 season as Nicholson’s teammate in Orlando, would back up.
