Nets trade Yi Jianlian to Wizards for Quinton Ross
 
Update: The trade is official - http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=6105

Quote:

The Nets are close to moving Yi Jianlian.

They are working on a deal with the Wizards that would send Yi and cash to Washington for a player who makes “significantly less” than what the Nets’ power forward earns. Three sources confirmed this could happen.

The player could be Quinton Ross ($1.14 million) or one of their draft picks. Yi makes $4.05 million this season. Either way, the Nets are close to getting Yi’s salary off their books.

The Nets would do this to get as far under the cap as possible so they potentially could sign two max players. Yi for Ross would save the Nets close to $3 million and put them around $30 million.

personally if this goes down, I think New York and Miami hunt down Washington's GM for giving Chicaago and NEw Jersey more cap space... considering NY gave up most of its assets (a couple of firsts and Jordan Hill) just to dump Jefferies... I get the feeling if NY waited they could've dumped Jefferies to Sac or Washington about now for only Chandler or Hill or a pick

Yi's got talent and he's only 23. Playing with John Wall could really help his game.

Besides the cap space, it might have to do with Favors.

Yi bitched a lot when he was drafted by Milwaukee. Wouldn't surprise me if he starts demanding to start / significant pt.

I like CDR, but he was having attitude issues and was disapproving of our new coach so he was pushing himself out the door anyway.

This Yi move is purely for cap and they're just trying to cut fat on the team I guess. I liked the way Yi was progressing, but oh well. We'll live.

Verizon center is right next to chinatown, YI will probably be a great attraction to tbe D.C area.

Everyone desparately wants cap space. Washington is helping people get cap space, but not charging them any premium even though teams are desparate to get cap space.

What am i missing?
