    Default John Wall almost has his hands on a max contract? Thoughts?

    So according to RealGm, John Wall is close to signing to a max deal with the Wizards which is a good idea since he's an All-Star PG in the making. He's set to sign a 5-year, $80 million contract. Thoughts? Is it too much or just right? For me, it's iffy. Health is the biggest concern right now. If he can stay healthy and improve upon his scoring efficiency, then I say it's well worth it. It really make you think about how much of a bargain Curry and Holiday are!

    He still has some potential to get better, so I see this as a medium risk-high reward situation.

    He doesn't seem like a max-money player to me. Especially with the injury concerns. At the same time, other franchises would give him max money to lure him away in RFA, so I guess it makes sense.

    He played well for about one month in his career so far; he was just very smart to make it the last one before contract negotiations.

    I agree with this! Based purely on injury concerns, he's definitely not worth a max contract. It's a smart move though because they're locking him up in the long run immediately rather than risking other team luring them away. I'm almost 100% sure some team will give him a max contract anyways in FA.

    John Wall always looks like he's playing lazy. Dude rarely ever takes over a game

    The WoW guys wrote an article about this suggesting that if Wall can't be signed for a lot less, he should be traded. That's correct. He is not a superstar player, not productive enough to warrant such money. Also, the 3/18 deal Gerald Henderson is getting from Jordan is ridiculous. He's a minimum-salary kind of player, easily replaceable. Teams are throwing around money like it grows on trees for no reason.
    Welcome to the NBA!!!

    While I look at the WoW metric as, shall we say, questionable. I think when you start to break down how and why players are payed their core thesis is spot on. Too many GMs don't pay for real production, rather they pay players for other reasons (they score points, they sell tickets, they've made big investments in them in the past etc). Also supported by Charles Barkley - "most GMs aren't trying to win they are trying to save their job"

    John Wall is an interesting case because he had 2 rather underwhelming (though not necesarily bad) seasons, but then blew up last year (even if incomplete as a PG). But it was also on a small number of games. Given he's got one more year on his contract before RFA, and the Wizards could offer him a max deal just aswell then as they could now, I have no idea why they'd be talking about this right now.

    Oh wait, yes I do. Their GM is Ernie Grunfeld. One of the few in this league who are a step down from Colangelo.

    A GM that is allowed to operate as Barkley says is working for a bad owner. And there are a lot of bad owners. I'd say most owners really don't know what they're doing at all.
    I don't disagree with that.

    But thats also why they higher General Managers isn't it?

    Look at you trying to recruit people to agree with you..it's rather pitiful.
