He's shoving it in the Wizard's organization's face. & the media's. & the fans. In the utmost falsely-diplomatic fashion, he has made it clear & clearer & clearerest. He wants out ASAP & the Wiz have to be shopping him at an all-time low price.
What are your feelings on making him our PG? His contract & our desire to be under the payroll (so much to sacrifice possibly the best trading chip on the market) makes me think this isn't remotely possible... then again MJ & Kwame have crossed paths again, so for me absolutely nothing in life can be ruled out.
I'm thinking a deal not unlike....
Wizards get: Diaw (9M), Augustin (2.5M), & Mohammed (7M)
After resting for a whole year, the dude has to be more healthy than he's been in a long time. Past injuries are distant stars of concern to me compared to the searing possibility that he doesn't have the desire to be great anymore or will drag around this currently-cancerous persona to any locker room he shows up in.
He's easily one of my favorite players (Ah, I remember him dropping 50 on Kobe, who had a meager 40-something), & I'm not convinced he's washed-up at all; a solid percentage of his contract will be earned.
Our depth chart would look something like this...
PG: Arenas / Livingston
SG: Jax / Hendo / Carroll
SF: Wallace / McGuire
PF: Thomas / D. Brown
C: K. Brown / Booker / Diop
I'd imagine Crittenton would have to be cut too..... awkward...
So big-timers, what's the verdict?
