the ****?


Okay guys let's build around John Wall! Okay here's what we'll do. We'll trade for a hugely overpaid big in Nene.(although I liked this trade)

Then! we'll trade away our capspace for an overpaid defensive specialist who is a streaky scorer at times, and another overpaid big who's got two more years on his contract!


Oh AND we're paying Blatche for 3 more years!

They're banking heavily on John Wall making the leap into becoming an Elite PG.

If that happens then Washington definitely will be a Playoff team.

I think Wall is going to thrive with a veteran, high IQ frontcourt. Ariza brings championship experience along with solid defense.

Okafor's value is that low now?

So I guess this means no Drummond for Washington if he's available?

The Wizards weren't going to do anything with any possible cap space.

I'd rather put veterans around Wall than overpay a bunch of young guys who nobody wants to keep. They already saw that a young team was not going anywhere but the Lottery.

I dont understand the Wizards. I understand Ariza is a been there done that guy. But the drafting of Vesely and Singleton look stupid. Granted Ariza can opt out and be a free agent this time next year. Just saying they have to be disappointed in those 2 picks no?

They should draft big. Anthony Davis and at 10 Meyers Leonard if he is there.

Forget Caveman

Yep.

It's what happens when you make a lot of money on a bad team.

Guys like Nene, Okafor, & Ariza have good value on good teams.

That frontcourt of Nene/Okafor is really intriguing.

When healthy, they look like a good fit.

You gotta keep your capspace in case someone there develops. Obviously Wall probably won't. But Crawford really turned it up towards the end of last season.

Now you're just overpaying not one, not two, but three!!! bigs. And only one you can amnesty and he only makes 6 million a year I think. Then you've got Ariza, who you can probably flip for someone good. But it makes no sense.

You're stuck with 4 more Nene years, 2 more Emeka years. and 3 more Blatche years. tell me how that's good? And what experience they have? Emeka? made the playoffs twice. Nene? sure he made it every year but made it only once past the first round. And blatche sucks in every facet. It's not like they're even good veterans. You're paying these guys between 30-40 million over the next two years!!!!!!

There's a good chance john wall makes his way into elite territory but he needs a new coach. As for the Wizards they better hit a home run pick in the draft or else the ceiling on this team is low.

Sidenote the Lakers should trade the tpe for Andre Blatche
