if they didn't luck out with wall there'd be heads rolling
First they cleared cap in order to get LeBron, Wade, Bosh, etc.
Then they got 1st pick, and suddenly they wanted to develop their own superstar and therefore they just took what they could get for free, Hinrich will be a good 'mentor' and hopefully Yi can come to use.
Wizards didn't really suppose they would get pick 1, so they had to change their plan.
