    I want Rashard Lewis, that guy is so efficient love his game. Not to mention his contract is super cap-friendly. Would Washington do a Lowry for Lewis+ Blatche deal?


    :p

    That's a serious poison pill for several years... he's getting paid $8-9M in 2014-15. Yikes!

    I wonder if a team would consider it for JaVale McGee... but he's a restricted free agent this summer, looking to get "paid."

    Would they be willing to give up their 1st round draft pick for the upcoming season?

    Blatche is somebody's "amnesty" drop waiting to happen. I know you can't do that for a traded player. But maybe the following year if they're content to overpay for McGee, then a team might consider.

    Tough pill to swallow.

    Maybe for Vesley AND McGee. Blatche is seriously a cancer... maybe worse. Some sort of Ebola.

    would do this in a heartbeat, but doubt they would, destroys any hope for Wall and their fanbase

    It's really hilarious that you can have Javale McGee and he's still not the dumbest guy on your team.

    The only way I would consider taking Blatche would be if the Wiz were willing to hand over their unprotected first round pick in the deal and take back only expirings. It looks like they're going to have a top 3 lottery pick so that would probably be worthwhile.

    McGee is an RFA so he's about to get paid. Combine his new salary with Blatche's and that's your price for Javale McGee. If you would essentially pay Javale McGee the max, you're dumb.
