Hi there. Hope my Wizards get Nerlens Noel. We need a defensive stud in the frontcourt. We should offer Josh Smith 5 years and $100 million, get Kawhi Leonard(we should have drafted him) and get some bench players(Lance Stephenson, Mike Dunleavy, Ramon Sessions, etc.). As far as the draft's concerned, besides Noel, I like Smart, McLemore, Carter-Williams, Zeller, Porter, Muhammad and Bennett. Think you're kind of screwed if you're a GM picking around 8 or lower. I see Carter-Williams as the value pick in this draft. Take care. Thanks.
How do you plan on "getting" Kawhi Leonard. The Spurs see him as their player of the future, and they have him under contract for another 2 years anyways. Also you have only 10 players and 65 million dollars in salary devoted to next year so I don't think you can just throw another 20 mil a year on one player. Sessions is in Charlotte and he is a Carolina native that likes his place as 6th man here. Lance Stephenson still has a team option on his contract for next year that they certainly will use so he is out. As far as the draft goes unless you win the lottery it doesn't look like most of those players are going to be available. Also the Wizards need to pretty much look into the SF sport first and foremost, and if there isn't anyone of value left there they should be looking to add a big. I would say it's a good chance they pretty much strike all guards off their list of people to draft.
Hi there. I think Noel has much better upside, especially defensively, than Okafor. Kawhi Leonard could have been had for cheap in his draft year(low position). You make a good point about some bad contracts on board. By the way, you're right on SF(Jan V. was a disaster)and Porter would be a nice pick. You're also right on Lance S., but you get the point(add some veteran depth on the bench). Josh Smith at 5 years, $100 million is a gift from God. Nene for Ryan Anderson ? Love Ernie Grunfeld, but Billy Knight or Randy Pfund would be a nice fit in Washington. Would like some coaches like Shaw and Rambis from the Laker tree, too. You're actually right about our cap situation. Take care. Thanks.
it depends on where the Wizards pick. I think personally if you get around 2nd or 3rd pick you take Otto Porter as first choice. Noel is another option I like. If you get around 5 to 6 I say take Cody Zeller. If some chance you do have cap to throw at Josh Smith then jump all over that and draft Porter if possible. I'd love a lineup of Nene, Smith, Porter, Beal and Wall. that lineup would be fun to watch.
Hi there. First of all, the Wizards should take Meadowlark Lemon. Secondly, I would trade James Harden and take Greg Oden over Kevin Durant. My two cents. Take care. Thanks.
Hi there. Dlesnie, I did my research. We actually do have a horrendous cap situation. The only way we could make a run at J-Smoove or Big Al is if we got rid of Okafor AND Nene. Even then, we're not guaranteed to get a big FA. We got about $11 million to spend. I'd target Jack(backup PG) and Dunleavy(SF-SG). Noel and Porter are great draft options. Would love Billy Knight to take over and some coaches like Shaw and Rambis from the Laker tree. Take care. Thanks.
