    Default JaVale McGee in Red and White?

    Looks like the Wiz are looking into what Blatche and McGee are worth.
    McGee would look great beside Bargs and/or Davis.
    This guy does everything we need right now and after watching him the last few time the Raps played the Wiz, its obvious this guy has some reeal potential. Athletic, runs te floor, it looks like he can touch the top of the backboard, block shots and throws it down like a beast.

    What would you trade for McGee?

    Anything besides TOR's 1st round draft pick, Ed Davis, or Bargnani.

    Apart from his talent McGee has a high motor and brings it every time I have seen him. The Wiz wont give him away and he would be sought after I think. A lottery pick at least. Is there a big man like him in the upcoming draft? I know we need a pg but there are possibly 2 only in the lottery picks. But we also need a big in the paint like him or Chandler...and McGee has a higher ceiling. I would give up our first.

    I wouldn't give up Davis, and I can't believe I'm saying this, Bargs. McGee has a Chandler in the making. He has energy to boot and defends the paint like nobody's business. I would argue that a big such as McGee is more valuable than a scoring PG like Rose or Wall. The game has gone faster and more guard oriented, which makes players like McGee that much more valuable because of their mobility and hustle (I'd include a healthy Noah as well). Back in the day it was Chamberlain, in the 90's there's Shaq. Now, we have Howard, Mcgee and Noah (the guards got faster but most Centers never caught up). That's what makes these guys special.

    Washington ain't stupid. They're not giving him away for nothing. Blatche, they'd give away for a couple of tubes of Ben Gay. McGee, he's gonna cost a lot!

    I would give up our 1st round pick. Only 22 years old and tremendous upside.

    This guys the same age as me, 22. hes not even done growing yet! A guy like that would truely give the raps "there thing" quick athletic players that will run, jump and hustle you out of the game. a frontcourt of mcgee, davis and ? would would put up a wall in the paint.

    I think McGee is better than Camby at the same age...and Camby was the #2 pick in the draft. These guys dont come around too often. I would just make sure he doesnt hang with Blatche in a bar. That said I have no idea what his personal situation is like...maybe he cant hold his Grey Goose.

    Don't let all the spectacular blocks fool you he is out of position on most plays. Did you see John Wall yelling at him for not being in the right place like four posessions in a row. Did you see two times when he tried to dunk from the free throw line. Amir is much better. Watch the games not the highlights. Mix up with Blatche at the club! He's more trouble than he is worth. Keon Clark anyone.

    he's had three years in the leauge and hasn't learned position defense. Watch more than two games. How many more "projects" do we need. There's a reason he is on the market."hes out of position", so what. that means you don't know how to play defense. Pay attention to scouting and know where youre supposed to be. Washington sucks and are willing to give up on him, take a hint. What does he bring that Amir doesn't.

    Well, we're short on players.

    I would take a chance on a 23 year old center on a rookie contract if he could be had for cheap.
    It's about money

    There is nothing we can trade that Wiz will take without shooting ourselves in the foot.

    the guy is clearly not a gifted offensive player, and thats what we exactly need from him
    what the raps need is a presence in the middle on defense, and McGee is a 8reb/2.5blks per game guy.
    he's 3rd in the league in blks, behind darko and howard.
    he's a perfect fit with the raps.
    Im just not sure BC has his eye on him because BC loves scorers.
    but McGee beside Bargs and Jose and Bayless throwing him alleys, i think it would be really, really nice.

    might be hard to pry him away from the Wiz with the raps assets (or lack thereof), the wiz might want to unload Lewis or Hinrich. Id gladly take Lewis and McGee for Peja and the TPE. 1st rounder to sweeten the deal.

    Calderon/DD/Kleiza/Bargs/McGee. Goosebumps.
