Default Who should the wizards trade for brendan haywood?

After this season, i think the wizards should trade brendan haywood. He's having a better season than usual so team might want him a little more. I think they should try to get him for either David Harrison from the Pacers or Steven Hunter from the Sixers (preferably Steven Hunter). What yall think?

I think the Wizards should keep him. Brendan is still fairly young (29), even though it seems like he has been around forever. Haywood asked for starters minutes this year, and used them decently. He does well on the defensive side of the ball, getting 8 rebounds and 2 blocks a game.

On offense, he still barely gets in double digits... but that's okay. When you have three shot-hogs on your team, you're not going to get many yourself. He still shoots over 50% from the field, and shoots relatively good -for a big man- from the line at about 72%.

He could be the Wizards starting center for awhile, although I don't think he is the one that needs to be traded. I think Jamison should be. He doesn't play defense, and he is not a low-post prescense. He shoots far too many jumpers and gets out of the post too much for a power forward.

We need to build off of Caron Butler and Agent 0.

The title of the thread needs to change, they aren't trading anyone for Brendan Haywood, they'll be trading Haywood for someone. Regardless, I don't really see anyone biting on him right now (or ever) that would net the Wizards a decent player in return. Plus he's the only thing resembling an inside threat for them right now.

i kind of agree with the trade for Jamison because he doesn't play any defense and Haywood is stepping up this year, plus Jamison is in his thirtys now but the problem is, i don't think Ape or Ernie would have it in them to trade him, and he's in the last year of his contract.
