Default Who should the starting OG be next year.

Re-sign Jeffries, Hayes or Draft an OG with the number 1 pick?

Jeffries is being traded. Hayes isn't a FA but when he is, **** him, he can walk. Daniels is ok as a starter provided we get a nice big man to fall to us in the draft.. or use Jeffries to trade up for one. Guards really aren't our problem.. we got Daniels, Arenas and Butler, I can live with that.

I suspect we'll start Arenas/Butler/Hayes/Jamison/Haywood next year... it will be odd having a starting lineup where everyone has teh same strengths and weaknesses.. no balance at all. And no bench either. But if Hayes can finally get some confidence we will be much better I think.

Stevenson will probably start, but Jarvis Hayes should have a chance IF he plays well. Then again would have Wiz start Daniels and Arenas together?

Caron Butler is the only OG on the Wizards.

Caron will play the three. Stevenson should be the SG. The Wiz are a running type of team. We have a motion offense, but we also have a lot of great fast break guys and a fairly lenient coach when it comes to having running on the team. Unless we find a way to get a solid bigman for downlow, there's no sense in starting to stiffs, like Thomas and Haywood, to go with Jamison, Butler, and Gil. It just doesn't make sense.

We aren't a defensive team, we are an offensive team. And our offense relies on motion, quickness, and outside shooting. That's why the ideal lineup has Jamison at PF, where he is quicker than a lot of others in the league at that position, and Caron at SF, so they can start either Stevenson or Danials (although he's undersized, creates problems on defense) at the OG. It's the only thing that makes sense.

Butler is the 3 and Stevenson is the starting OG for now until Jarvis Hayes kicks it into gear.

After Jarvis single handedly gave away the game against the Cavs, I want nothing to do with him or his unorthodox shot.

That was one game, you can't give up on Hayes just yet. He has shown in the past that he can be a productive scorer.

The Wizards already have scoring though. That's Caron, Jamison, and Gilbert are there for. They have the shooters in those three, but they need someone who can do all of the dirty work. And from what I saw against the Cavs, Stevenson can be that guy. He's an athletic freak, which allows him to rebound the ball relatively effectively, and play solid defense as well. He's quick, and he can get out on the break and finish at the rim. And it's not like he has an awful shot. It's not as good as Hayes, but it's okay. I just see him as the better fit.

That is true, they do have scorers and maybe Hayes may be more affective coming off the bench when they need some points. The problem with the Wizards right now is they cannot rely on there centers(Haywood/Thomas) from game to game. One game they may be good, the next one may be in insent foul trouble and be useless. They really need to acquire a center that will help them on a consistent basis.

Stevenson is the OG for the Wizards. And I think he is doing a pretty good job as he always seems to be hustling and giving 100%. He may not be putting up 20 point games or 10 assists each night, but he provides alot to the team with his hustle.
