Yeah, a buddy of mine and I were crunching numbers and convinced ourselves that the proposed Carter trade with the Wizards would be part of a larger three-team trade in which the Magic get Paul and Okafor and the Hornets get pieces like Gortat, Hinrich, and maybe Pietrus. I wouldn't mind renting Carter for a year. Armchair GMs.

The more I see/read about Seraphin and Booker, the more I'm convinced the FO did the right thing by trading up to secure them. I read that Booker's sprint times were actually faster than Wall's! If he can project anything close to Milsap, that's a plus. I think Seraphin may be a force in two or three seasons... defensively, I think the Wiz just got a whole lot better.

Thinking it's time we all get tickets once the schedule comes out and meets up at a game.

Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

The Wizards have traded Quinton Ross to the Nets for 7 footer Yi Jianlin

Yi Jianlian Stats, News, Photos - New Jersey Nets - ESPN

Not a bad move considering Blatche's broken foot.

What's interesting is that gives the Nets some more cap room. It almost seems like the Wizards are trying to help teams like the Bulls and Nets clear some cap room so some (all?) the big free agents don't end up in their division with the Heat

I like the trade.

Ross wasn't going to give us anything, Yi's only got one year left on his contract, and we got $3 million in cash from the Nets. Yi's got some skill for a big, and just needs to show more toughness. I also like how he gives the Wiz a bridge to market themselves (particularly Wall) in China. I think Yi's nationality is what sealed the deal here.

Didn't realize we got cash as well. True, Ross wasn't going to give us anything

YES!!! I most definetely approve of this move. Big men that can shoot are always welcome as far as I'm concerned. Also Yi seems like a great fit for Flips system which emphasizes mid range shots.

Obviously they have a plan that covers the long term. I like how they realized they couldn't be major players in the free agent market so they decided to capitalize on the freedom that realization could bring.

You know, I thought about this fact for a bit. The Wizards seem to be the one team helping out everyone else with their salary cap in this FA flurry... but the more I thought about it, the more I see another angle. There's only so many top flight FAs to go around... Lebron, Wade, Bosh (top tier), then JJ-Amare-Boozer. Two, if not all three, of the top guys are going to end up playing together imo. If that happens, you're left with three or four teams who have all this cap space with the remaining FAs to sign. They're going to outbid each other, grossly overpaying for guys like Rudy Gay.

The Wiz are anticipating the FA fallout and a new CBA in a year. Meanwhile, stockpile players that are young, athletic, low-risk and short term... while being in a position of strength in two or three seasons when the other teams (who we 'helped' now) inevitably feel the bite from these bloated contracts.

Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

Jianlian is a major injury risk, but we did not give up a lot to get him. He has potential, but it hasn't worked out for him yet.

I like the potential addition of Travis Outlaw

I think Memphis was going to be in the market for Outlaw... but Gay is probably resigning with the Grizz. He'll fit with the uptempo system in Washington.

If more and more guys re-sign with their teams, all of the other teams that positioned themselves for cap space this offseason are going to overpay severely for lesser talent. Many of those teams are the east, so that helps us in the long run.

Yeah looks like both Rudy Gay and Joe Johnson are staying with their teams. With Gay staying in Memphis though, that might free up Ronnie Brewer

Brewer I like a lot. Excellent defender from the wing and is athletic enough to keep up on offense in transition. Wouldn't sign him for his outside shot, however. For the price he'll probably command in this market, not sure the Wiz will have enough.
