    Wiz are going to buy out half of those guys. Maybe Marshall survives. What a high price to pay for a healthy center. Suns aren't even hiding that they're diving.

    We should try to deal for one of those picks. Sun are stocking up on 1st rounders, imagine prying one away and landing Wiggins

    Wiz are expected to waive Marshall and Brown, per Marc Stein.

    Suns are riding the tank pretty hard! 4 first round picks is incredible.

    Suns are doing it aggressively and it will likely pay off. 4 first rounders, they could practically draft the University of Kentucky.

    How long before Dragic is send out? Everything but Eric Bledsoe will likely be dealt.

    Should the Raptors look to pick up Marshall as the third point guard and future back up?

    Wow, not sure I understand the Wiz's mentality. So they traded a solid role-playing C and a 1st round pick for a slightly more solid C and a giant pile of crap.

    Is Colangelo advising the Wiz now?

    That Okafor guy will have plenty of problems with neck stiffness, believe me. ( he's been rehabbing from herniated disk in his neck. )

    There goes my Gay to Phoenix idea.. Phoenix and Philly going to duke it out for Wiggins. Hope they both fail.

    They'll both fail and somehow Cleveland will get the first pick

    Okafor is out indefinitely. I'm a little surprised for Washington especially since they're dumping everyone except Gortat but they're clearly trying to win now.
    Also this begs the question
    Who is worse, Philli or Suns?
    Phx has Dragic and Bledsoe who are good but they both play the same position
    I think Phoenix has become the worst team in the league!

    Probably. They are in the West too, so they'll lose a few extra games because of schedule.

    So...when do they trade Bledsoe and/or Dragic? Would DJ and the Knicks pick from the Bargs trade work for Bledsoe? I mean, this is ridiculous. How the hell will Phoenix sell tickets this season?

    Pretty sure they'll hold onto Bledsoe. Should be a fun team to watch with Bledsoe and Green, despite sucking majorly

    No reason for them to trade Bledsoe.

    Yeah, didn't realize he had a herniated disk.

    Still, what weirds me out most about this deal is that the Wiz gave up a nice big expiring contract and a valuable 1st round pick for a guy who may just be a one year rental (and is on a smaller expiring deal). Gortat will likely have a decent amount of teams chasing him in the summer, and there's really no guarantee the Wiz can hang onto him, assuming it's even a good fit. Still a pretty iffy deal to make for the long-term benefit of the team.
