The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

Recommended Posts

They wanted out of his contract and they found a sucker. We used probably our 2nd most talented player to take on a ****ty contract lol.

Only with this GM running this clown show.

Yep. Really got suckered on this one. Smh.

If he was being considered as the #1 FA before his contract..why is trading for him a bad idea?

I don't get it.

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/7350826/sources-denver-nuggets-re-sign-nene-5-year-67m-plus-contract

He's an injury prone big man with bad knees at the age 30 who just signed a 5yr, 65 mil dollar deal. That is a poisonous contract. Denver has been on the right side of personnel moves, they're giving up on him for a reason. They know his knees won't be getting better as that contract moves forward.

This is pretty much the equivalent of Vinny Cerrato getting an extension. No way does the owner let the GM take on at least 60 million in salary over a 4 year span unless the GM is here to stay.

I can totally believe we made this **** trade. This is a classic Wizards move. Trade a talented young player for an overpaid, aging, injury prone guy whose best years are behind him.

you let McGee walk at the end of the year and you either use the money for someone else or you resign him. This is the TED effect. The wizards and capitals are the next business that will suffer AOL 2.0

They were swearing on NBA TV. One of the guys said "WTF was Denver thinking?" I don't know why some of you guys are mad. This is a good deal for the Wizards. One more knucklehead to go with Blatche.

League source says Nuggets had experienced some "buyer's remorse" after signing often-injured Nene to a five-year, $67M deal in Dec. '11.

what a ****ing joke

McGee is not a cancer and never has been. Nene is an injury prone going on 30 center that now ties up a ton of money. The nuggets aren't know for trading FOR cancers, just ask the Knicks. Wilson chandler is not part of the deal and they aren't even using him (I think they still own his rights, could be wrong)

I liked McGee and his potential, but this year really showed how low is basketball IQ was. I've never liked Nick Young as he's a streaky shooter/scorer on an awful team and would ride the pine with any other decent squad. I like Nene, but not for his money/contract. Weren't McGee and Young on the last year of their deals as is? Just goes to show you that Ernie Grunfeld needs to go.

Think two years down the road, when an already injury prone player is breaking down, making 13 million a season, and we can't bring in additional help because his contract is killing our cap space.

This is not the NFL where ****ty contracts don't matter. It would have been better to just let McGee walk free in FA instead of making this awful trade.

We are probably going to use the amnesty on Blatche and then we are stuck with Nene for his entire contract. It's absolutely amazing that Ernie gets to blow up his own mess by creating a bigger one.

Anyone else get the feeling that NeNe's knees are about to start hurting alot more once he gets to Washington?

You mean like Lewis how seems like the NBA's #1 fan sitting in the stands every night? Yes.

Any Wizards fan have confidence this team will win anytime in the next 10 years? Been this way since I watched us hoist the trophy in 78. Stupidity for 30+ years. If it isn't one thing, it's another with this joke of a franchise. Maybe they should just contract the Wizards on the grounds of not being able to do anything for 30 years.

Wanna know how much Vegas thinks McGee and Young are worth to the Wiz? Well before this trade, Wiz were +3 on the road. Wanna guess what the new line is?

+3.5

And Denver's "buyer's remorse" on Nene, as @KBergCBS called it, very real: Source says Kings rebuffed Nugs' attempt at Nene-Cousins swap

Denver knows something about Nene's health, they just signed the deal a few months ago and they already want out. That red flag would be obvious to a GM with a brain.

I think you all are all nuts. On the record I LOVE this deal. McGee and Young wouldn't have been on this roster next year anyway. We trade them away and get a top 5 NBA Center with a good contract. Centers get paid in this league...you all will see when JaVale gets the Max this offseason with the nuggets.

He is 29, but Skilled Big men like Nene can play well into their mid-late 30s at a high level in the NBA.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the dal.

Are you all kidding me? First the histrionic ****ing about not making a deal to get rid of JaVale and now that we find out we made one, the laughably knee jerk ****ing about what we got in return?

Nene is many times the player and professional that JaVale is, and HIS CONTRACT IS BETTER THAN THE ONE JAVALE IS GOING TO GET THIS SUMMER!!!!!!!!

This was a good deal. We needed to get something in return for JaVale and we got a good center out of it. As a bonus we get to ship off Nick Young? That's fantastic!

Or maybe they are extremely high on McGee and think he will be better than Nene already is.

Currently Nene is much better than McGee

Since I've been in Philly, I havent watched many games since school started (i buy the packages for the caps and yanks but refuse to spend on the wizards) but god, this team is a desert wasteland. My dream was sneaking in as 7th-8th seed and luring/bribing Dwight Howard here. I woke up after the first pre-season game.

They would have to be extremely high on something to be high on McGee.

Classmate: Hey Mike (that is me) your squad just traded McGee and Young and picked up Nene

Me: :doh:

The DC curse is about to start. One of them will become a beast (my money is on McGee)
