They have to be. That #6 pick came down between Vesely and Leonard and it clearly didn't work out in their favor.

They have been in a slump ever since they did that Miller/Foye for #5 deal.

Rashard Lewis' 23.8 million dollar contract can be bought out for 13.7 million before July 1st. Trade saves New Orleans around 30 million?

Hornets making good moves.

Amazing deal for NOH. Questionable for the Wiz, Nene/Oka4 sounds interesting but will it work.

This is the same GM who agreed to send Chris Paul to LA for essentially Luis Scola & Lamar Odom.

Shard tries when he's on a good team. He could get that stroke back!

Wizards confirm that trade is now official

Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has acquired forwards Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza from the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for forward Rashard Lewis and the 46th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

“We are pleased to add two more solid pieces as we continue to build our roster with a balance of proven veterans and the core of young talent that we have developed,” said Grunfeld. ”Emeka’s defensive presence and rebounding ability will combine with Trevor’s versatility to add new dimensions to our frontcourt, and both players fit in very well with the type of team-first culture that we have been working to establish.”

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!!!!!!
Its too late to rule out Wall improving with a new, better cast of teammates around him. But they wont have any problem retaining Crawford when the time comes, but as far as them getting someone on the open market I dont really have faith in that.

Washington has never really been attractive to Free Agents, mainly due to poor management & them not being contenders. Its a smart move to see how far John Wall can take this group because his development is at the heart of this decision. If they're a Playoff team in another couple of years when they do have some cap space then they will be able to attract a legit Free Agent to join John Wall.

Basically, a calculated risk.

Can John Wall shoot yet?

That is the real question.

Nothing wrong with his stroke, its just that he's simply gotten far too comfortable standing around behind the arch due to spending the last few years waiting to get the ball kicked out to him by Dwight Howard.

That literally is all he does now. Rashard was once a really dynamic scorer at the rim, from the perimeter, and had a good mid-range game.
