Um guys, there is absolutely no way in hell that they trade 2 and Brand for Diaw and Diop. Come up with something new, like perhaps what Slam offered up:
Jack + Nazr for Turner + Brand
sure seems more likely
We could always use the 2 and a s&t with tyrus or felts to try and go after bosh or the starting pg we desperatly need.
can't imagine they would do that either. if they would they are idiots.
They will not entertain trading up to #2. The ONLY reason they'd do that is if the Wizards decided to go with someone not named John Wall.
Let's evaluate this: Larry Brown very rarely has rookies play solid numbers their rookie season (example: DJ Augustin and Gerald Henderson)
The only rookie Brown and company would make a drastic move for is John Wall due to Larry's obsession at the PG position. This is the era of dominate PGs, so if we could find a way to draft Wall, then we gotta do it.
Seeing as Washington will more than likely not pass up the opportunity to pick Wall, then I would say our hopes for this trade are slim to none.
too small. i just don't see jax as a big-time want for them considering his price tag and age.
if it was jax for brand they would do it in a heartbeat. or if we had say a top 6 or 7 pick they might do it with a future 1 for us.
This is a little off topic but John Wall is getting overhyped a bit... he's good, but not Lebron-all-or-nothing-no-one-else-in-the-draft-will-be-better good. He can't run a team. If you look at that Kentucky roster... wow, any point guard with above average passing abilities would've flourished. I really don't even feel as though he was the best player on his own team. It was impossible to double team anyone on that roster, which is full of nba talent, without getting destroyed. Whereas on the otherhand, Turner got double'd every game and OSU's success was directly dependent on him.
Btw, DJ got his minutes from LB during his rookie year.
And John Wall in Larry Brown system would make me consider jumping off a building.
