Good trade for the Wizards.

Trying to actually become relevant. And trying to change the culture. Let's face it, they aren't going to attract premiere free agents so they have to make moves for talent through trade.

Okafor
Nene
Ariza
Bradley Beal
Wall

Plus I see them trying to dump Blatche on someone else for a pick.


Okafor and Ariza only have two more years, so its not like you are stuck with them forever anyway.

Wizards still have too many young guys. I'd look to get a veteran sg and back-up pg too. A go to guy ideally since Nene hasn't shown he can be that guy. In the East they can make some noise. Their defense has improved significantly with the trade.

I dont like the idea of rebuilding in that way. Scola/Martin and Odumb would have kept them stuck in mediocrity. You wouldnt have had an extra lottery pick or been in position to draft Anthony Davis. Atleast here you have young talent you can mold/develop some on cheap contracts. And while you spend on your young star Eric Gordon you can play with cap space money and fill in certain positions not filled via draft. For example, Goran Dragic PG.

Who says Beal can shoot any better than Crawford? That is the point you all are missing by assuming he's the next Ray Allen. There isn't an ounce of shooting consistency in a lineup of:

Wall
Beal
Ariza
Nene
Okafur

The very worse trades are the one's where ISH signs off in the beginning only to go revisionist skeptic and hate on it when it fails.

The point is the Wiz, and ISH, assume Beal is the player who can space the floor enough for their lineup to work. I doubt this. He probably wowed them in workouts but that's what workout warriors do, wow when not playing against anyone.
