Report: Wizards make offer to Oberto

Quote:

Oberto, a 6-foot-10 center spent four seasons with the Spurs, averaging 3.6 points and 3.9 rebounds, and was the starting center for the 2007 championship team. The Wizards have planned on signing a veteran big man for somewhere between the league minimum and the bi-annual exception (roughly $2 million). For a player with Oberto's experience, the minimum offer would be $854,957.

I guess thats a good pickup?

I'd rather have Mcdyess ( not sure if anyone got em yet )

anyone else on the radar?

Yeah, when I thought of the Wiz signing a veteran big man, I didn't think of Oberto. But he has been on a championship team and he's a tough guy...still would prefer McDyess just like you. Problem is he's too expensive for the amount of money we want to spend.

If he can give us quality minutes for minimum, i'm fine with that.

Yeah man I've been here for a while and nothing's changed. It's never been really active. It's basically just me, you, Burrito and Butters. There used to be a guy here GeeWiz15 who used to post a lot and was the mod for this particular forum but I don't know where he went. I guess we just have to wait once the season starts and if we do well as expected, some other posters will come in here and it will start to pickup. I just can't wait till the season starts.

Maybe when the season starts activity will pick up. its pretty sad when you see lakers forum have like 14k replies and we have like 236....wtf

Yeah I hope so.

BTW McDyess signed with the Spurs a couple days ago, just looked it up. :violin:

Weaksauce.

I also like Drew Gooden.

He can D up a big man and grab some reebs for us.

I'm pretty sure he is still on the market

Re: Report: Wizards make offer to Oberto
 
True. I'd take Gooden in a heartbeat. Go to the NBA forum and look at that thread called notable free agents. plenty of good players still out there.

Sorry try to post as much as I can. Do you think the wiz are just trying to fill a spot with the cheapest thing they can find? I swear I heard that they would be willing to go over the cap if meant getting talent in here that would help us win. No offense to Oberto but I think he just filled a spot to keep Duncan from playing against the bigger centers. If we want to make bone head moves Kwame Brown and Juwan Howard are available :rolleyes:
