    I'm personally not a big fan of this trade if I was a fan of the Wizards. NO was dangling the 10th pick for anyone that would take Ariza or Okafor off their hands.. yet Washington took both and failed to get that pick as well. I think Okafor is one injury away from a lost season.. and Ariza's best days are behind him.. they get some veterans.. but neither seem to be that leader that a team like Washington could use.

    Anyway, I don't think this changes the draft order in any way. MKG/Beal could still go to the Wiz at #3. I just want a team (preferably 2 teams) that would stay away from drafting either Davis, Beal, MKG, T-Rob, Barnes, or Lillard. The Wiz are still likely to draft from this bunch, so it won't affect the Raps much unfortunately. If anything, Drummond might fall - but that's a guy the Raps could do without.

    If Drummond gets as far as us we kinda have to take him...we can sort out the issue later with a trade

    Sacramento would be on my dial list. Drummond is not offensive minded - that would work perfect with Cousins.

    If Portland picks Lillard and Golden State passed on Drummond, the Raps might have a shot at one of MKG, Beal, or Barnes assuming Davis and Robinson are the other top 5 players.

    LOL! Yeah I guess you're right. Was just implying that he's been injury prone. I fear that another injury (even a minor one) could derail him for an entire season (like Bogut with Milwaukee). I hope that's not the case.. just something that I would be afraid of if I took him on, considering he's owed about $28M for 2 years.

    I wonder if Sacramento would be interested in a trade? Maybe Ed (or Amir) + #8 for #5? With #5 we can draft Barnes (or MKG/Beal if they drop).. and with #8 Sacramento could get Drummond or Lillard or Rivers (to replace Evans).

    Last year Sacramento moved down from 7 to 10 by trading Udrih for Salmons in a 3 team trade.

    Via Twitter.com:

    Mike Prada: "I don't think we're depending on a rookie to come in and play 40 minutes a night for us anymore." -EG on one benefit of trade

    Ernie Grunfeld is right on.

    They have plenty of youth in Wall, Crawford, #3, #32, Serephin, Booker, Vesely, Singleton, and Mack.

    A move like this to add quality veterans (eventhough they are overpaid) is stellar.

    I wish the raptors could pull off a trade like this, retain our pick and bring in two very serviceable players by dumping an expiring contract and a 2nd round pick? Wow. Great trade for Washington.

    Interesting trade. Washington should be a playoff team and will have a nice core of Wall, and the third pick to build around. Nene and Okafar can be the Pekins and Ibaka to Wall and the third pick with Crawford perhaps playing the Harden role. I already feel bad for Davis as he is looking at a few years of losing before NO ca turn things around. I can see Eric Gordon walking out on NO.

    Not sure I would be a big fan of doing this. Dwyer definitely thinks Washington is setting themselves up for more mediocrity:

    Headline reads: Washington deals away its potential cap flexibility, and Rashard Lewis, to New Orleans for Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza

    I'm not seeing playoffs for the Wiz.. granted Okafor was injured most of the year, but he hasn't really ever been a part of a winning team (well.. I guess when he had Paul on his team). Nene didn't do anything to help the Wiz last year.. and Ariza is just a serviceable player.. those two guys are decent, but their not superstar/allstar type players.. unless their #3 pick is gold, I still see them in the lottery next year.. probably going to be better than 3rd worst.. but probably more in the 8/9/10 range.

    Also they still have Blatche on their team.. he's good for at least 10-15 losses

    Not using amnesty on Lewis = Amnesty Blatche

    a line up of

    PG: Wall
    SG: 3rd Overall Pick
    SF: Ariza
    PF: Okafor
    C: Nene

    Can make the playoffs depending on how good John Wall plays, and if they can defend. They certainly have the personnel to be a good defending team.
