A.J. Price on Jan Vesely: "He doesn’t like to go to the free-throw line, because everybody’s watching." wapo.st/15rBL2f
Jesus Christ are they really thinking about doing another Miller/Foye type deal? Leave to Ted and Big Ern to fuck it up...
Yesterdays Washington Wizards exit interviews featured a couple lines that have been scaring me since I stared at them late tonight. You may recall John Wall expressing his desire to sign more...
It is the business walk of the biggest, baddest bear in the national park happening upon an abandoned picnic.
Get shitty veterans through FA not by trading draft picks
No they won't do that. There isn't anyone out there worth the 7-10 pick. Plus they're not getting 1-3.
All they have to do is sign there own free agents and they'll be OK. (Webster, Price, Temple and Martin)
They have the mid-level exception and the bi-annual exception to use.

Let's just get Dwight Howard.
Of course players want guys who are ready right away. And that's why they should never have a say in front office dealings.
They only free agent I would consider at this time is Al Jefferson (28). Very gifted offensively but may be the worst defensive center in the NBA. However in the closing minutes of a game, Wall, Beal, Webster, Nene and Jefferson would be impossible to defend. Just substitute Okofor for Jefferson on important defensive possesions. I'm not sure the Wizards can afford him and Webster though.
Jefferson is going to command more then he is worth IMO, although he is a pretty good player.
I agree. Especially with his defensive limitations.
What about Milsap?
I watched extensive video on Greek 18 year old, he could become a great player and I think he is going to hit close to 7 foot.
If I had #1 pick, I like Len the best now. I have heard new reports about him form insiders and I think he is legit 7 footer.
Please EG do not get old vets who are not an upgrade.
Milsap probably will resign with Utah. That's why Jefferson will be available.
I think Len is going to be a top 3 pick. His private workout for teams is going to be very good and many NBA GMs will ignore what he actually did in many of the games the past two seasons (Especially the UVa. game, he was absolutely horrid in that game in College Park)
Giannis Adetokunbo is interesting. His ability to handle the ball (with either hand) for his size is outstanding. But like everyone else in this draft, he has holes in his games. Fortunately the holes in his game can be corrected with proper coaching (like shying away from contact and not being a great on ball defender).
I just want EG to resign the free agents that was already on the team (Webster, Price, Temple and Martin). Don't need any new free agents.

Please, no more euros. Pretty Please.
Isn't Alex Len a Euro?

DET won the tie breaker vs #wizards & will have 7th-best odds (3.6%) of winning the NBA lottery. WAS will have 8th-best odds (3.5%).
I just don't want Oladipo. You need more than Tony Allen with a top 10 pick.
This is the best way to ensure that the franchise stays in the trash for the next decade.
Other than trading for Demarcus Cousins and signing him to a max contract.
assuming we're picking in the 8-11 range, i hope we grab one of len, zeller, or muhammed. I'm thinking porter and bennett will be gone by then
Big Ern and Jan laugh heartily at this suggestion.
We would be lucky if Len is available at 9-11. At this point in the draft it would have to be Len, Zeller or Adetokunbo. Muhammed is not going to be a good pro. He will not be able to get his shot off against NBA SFs. ,
Just fucking shoot me now and put me out of my misery.
Because Dwight can't play with Kobe? Wall, Beal, and Dwight is good enough to be the second best team in the east.
Dwight is a petulant child. He is great when he wants to play. You don't ransom your franchise to a guy who has to be coddled like a six year old.
What do the lakers do? One more year of kobe then what. Give the franchise to howard? Interesting problems for lakers coming up.
But back to wiz... I wouldnt want howard. Need 1-2 more young real good players with wall/beal. That's uour nucleus. Howard would be if we were on the cusp of a title. Even with him we aren't
He'd be great here. Top dog in terms of star power so he'd be happy, great distributing point gaurd and a killer shooter to create space for him and Wall to work.
I think Dallas is going to make a strong push for Howard and Paul. Don't count Cuban out. He may trade the Wizards someone on the low for more cap space.
