Wizards get: Randy Foye, Mike Miller

Minny gets: Etan Thomas, Oleksiy Pecherov, Darius Songalia, 5th Pick

Goooooooooood move by minny. They get size with Songalia, Pecherov, and Thomas, and they keep their pick

Whoever their GM is should get a raise

As for Washington, they get what they basically wanted out of the draft and that's a SG.

Decent for Washington just based on talent alone and it'll probably be a decent trade for Minnesota depending on who they pick.

I don't think too much of Randy Foye and definitely don't see how he'll fit with Arenas but I guess he's still a young asset in this league. Getting Mike Miller though is a nice pickup for a team that'll probably be one of the better teams in the East if healthy next year. Mike Miller gives you that bit of everything (except D) at either SG or SF. Good shooting, solid playmaking and rebounding and doesn't demand a ton of shots.

Arenas
Miller
Butler
Jamison
Haywood

That's damn nice when healthy. A very dangerous offensive team.

I guess Minnesota will now draft one of the PGs with one of their picks. If they can get James Harden + Rubio/Flynn/Curry/Holiday then they'll finally have the makings of a more balanced roster.

They gotta be thinking Rubio will be there at 5. Maybe they get Curry too.

Just a heads up Pecherov is a BUM SOngalia is a garbage man and Ethan Thomas gets hurt taking a shower for you Minn. fans you better hope the 5 pick is a stud to make up for giving up Randy
