Glad to see Antawn will get to play for a contender instead of being stuck in rebuilding limbo here in D.C. Real good guy and I'll remember his time in DC fondly for many years.

At least we got a 1st round pick out of it. I also like Al Thornton.

Sigh. The demolition is complete. Butler and Jamison are out, Al Thornton, Josh Howard and co. are in. At least we finally got rid of Stevenson though, I'm kinda glad he's gone. And I'd be happier about Cleveland's first round pick if there wasn't like a 98% chance it'll be in the last five of the first round.

any chance this is the first stop for Jamison? maybe heading to Phoenix?

Nah, this was Cleveland's second choice and it's definitely the better one. Amar'e wouldn't have fit very well there.

This Wizards team looks a little crazy because you now have Thornton, McGee and Blatche. They're all similar players and none of them are particularly good NBA players, but they have "upside" and a good deal of athleticism. I don't see this working out very well for the Wiz.

Only 6 players under contract next year, potentially lots of room to maneuver in free agency. Definitely more of a financial trade, than a basketball one

Has this ever happened before in the history of the NBA? Halfway through the season the Wizards have purged their roster of the entire starting five that started the season.

I'm happy for Jamison, Butler and Haywood, they have gone to teams that at least are in position to compete for a championship. That was not going to happen for them here. It's going to be interesting to see this team take shape for the future.

Are they trying to position themselves for a run at the King?

I was just thinking that. I think the King wants to be in the big apple.

I think Bosh and Joe Johnson are the most likely free agent targets for the Wizards.

I don't think they're done trading today though.

Arenas is still under contract right for the next few years right? Maybe I'm wrong but they can't void his contract right?

At least they should have a couple first rounders w/ one very high pick. It's going to be awhile.

I don't think King James would be interested in coming here. It's going to be a while before any of the top-tier FA's are going to have an interest in coming to the Wizards.

My Celtics are looking old. I have pretty much convinced myself this is the King's year. I rather see him win it then Kobe again, I hate Kobe.
