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.

Says the Perry Jones fanboy.

He is the definition of workout warrior. Wows people with his measurements and his ability to shoot the J.

Dude is a dud. Watch game tape. Seems to never show up in big games. Quincy Acy carried that team along with Pierre Jackson.

In other news, Beal is the best SG prospect and that is what we need. MKG is a very nice piece, but his scoring ability even more suspect than Beal.

Obviously must be for money, because the Wizards make out good in the trade. Who should be starting center for the Wizards? Nene or Okafor?

Perry Jones: 14/7 50%

Beal: 14/2 44%

Keep the nonsense going. I guarantee MKG becomes a better NBA player than Beal. It won't be even close. Stay in your draft mode denial.

You just compared the stats of an SG and a PF.

Congrats.

Not a good trade for the Hornets.
Okafor would have been a good player alongside Davis. Ariza possibly could have been moved for someone else.
Now they will have more cap space, but it is not going to be easy to get someone to come there.

Maybe the Hornets will target Asik - that would be a good pick up at the bigs.

Good trade for the Wizards. They get two serviceable players for Lewis, who would have been bought out anyway.

Now it's time for the Wizards to amnesty Blatche and create another 7 million in cap space.

You can as long as your season is over. Thunder and Heat are the only teams that can't.

Well something happened to all 3 players involved as Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, & Lamar Odom each had down seasons compared to the last few years.

It would've been a disastrous deal had it gone through for New Orleans and their future with no marquee player, but their GM was adamant on doing it.

He probably could still get all 3 players if he wants since both Martin/Scola are on the Block and Dallas has made it clear Odom is gone.

I think the Hornets should now draft Davis at #1 and then grab a C at #10.

They still have both Gustavo Ayon & Jason Smith who are serviceable big men to throw in at the C position. They probably should add a backup C who is more of a space eater on defense, someone like Jason Collins or Aaron Gray.

I wonder just how low Andray Blatche's stock is right now.

I'd almost like to see them trying to package the #3 pick with Blatche to get rid of him. Maybe to Atlanta for Josh Smith and #23? Eh, probably not a good trade. #23 would net them a decent player. Probably an older rookie that's more ready to play right away and Smith would fit in well with Wall. Atlanta would get a player that does have honest potential in Blatche, maybe could allow them to move Horford to the 4. At #3, they could get a very good player that could end up being as good as Josh Smith, or they could go with MKG (NBA ready defender?).

Wiz clearly looking for some proven veterans to add to their young core and let them draft a shooting guard (although I would have loved to see MKG and Wall together). Hornets get a monster expirer to allow them to give Eric Gordon a max contract and secure their core of Davis + Gordon.

just because they traded for ariza doesnt mean that they wont draft MKG, they would be retarded to think ariza is a long term solution at SF. ariza is garbage, and not somebody you wanna build around. they should still draft mkg

Not sure what Washington is doing. Clogs their cap for 2 more years, makes them decent at best. Nene and Okafor is a decent front line but it's not winning anything. It could miss the playoffs still. And they found a way to clog their cap even longer than the Lewis contract did.

How would they have used that cap space though? Have you looked at the free agents available in '13, it's not a terribly impressive group outside of Paul and Howard (neither of whom the Wizards were likely to sign). Plus, it's only an extra year and both contracts are easier to move instead of one giant lump of $22 mil.
