ross is solid. he's a cheap 9-10 man and plays very good defense. i always liked him better than bobby simmons (i'm not sure if he's even still on the nets).

He just expired. Though Trenton was better than simmons anyway.

He's helping his own team- that is a great deal for the wizards- nobody is thinking about the knicks when building their own teams- maybe they think about the lakers or another good team but nobody should be worried about the knicks or nets capspace, right now that's nothing. Teams still have to build for themselves

PG: Harris
SG: Joe Johnson

PF: Favors
C: Brook Lopez

Bench:
Courtney Lee


This is some team. A little young, but certainly can contend in a couple of years.

Any team with LeBron is a contendor especially with a center like Lopez and a player like Johnson.

for the bench dont forget about T-Will

how many players average a double double in pts-rbs? and you think Yi can? Nuts to you, sir

Yeah. Brook Lopez would be the best big man LeBron has ever played with if that happened.

I was kind of surprised by this. I figured with the Nets global marketing scheme, they'd keep Yi and try and work him in to the system. I guess not. He doesn't really fit with Avery Johnson. The Nets are already going to have a logjam at the PF spot if they sign a big FA acquisition. Getting rid of Yi helps that.

Im not really a fan of all the moves that the WIZ having been making either to tell you the truth. The only good move in the past year has been drafting John Wall. To me when a team is looking to destroy and rebuild they should have at least put themselves in a position to be a major player in this free agency market. It seems as if they've just been racking up on players that teams have been trying to get rid of, but not players that would have significant impact on their future. IMO it's been a waste

Bobby Simmons is finally a free agent? God... it took so long before this day happen

By the way, who gave him that never ending contract?

T Will = Poor Man's Lebron

Though it is not inconceivable to think if Lebron comes, TWill will either be traded or play a Tony Allen role (which would further reduce his talents)

He's trying to help the Wizards get better, and he is doing that.

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.
