With the 1st selection, the Wizards will obviously select John Wall.

Do you think that now they have their point guard and their new face of the franchise, do they get rid of the tarnished imaged and troublesome Gilbert Arenas and his massive contract?


I'm thinking a team that wants to contend for a championship will trade its pieces to acquire a talent like Gilbert Arenas.


Do you think the Wizards will trade Agent Zero? Or do you think the combination of skills and the personality of two guards in Wall and Arenas may work in DC?

Thoughts.

Who would take him? They already paid him more than anyone else would have, and that was before the gun incident.

No, seriously.

I don't know why, but I think a team like the Miami Heat might make a trade to make D-Wade happy so that he can have a backcourt running mate in Gilbert.

Or maybe with an aging Jason Kidd, the wacky and desperate (championship window closing for franchise player Dirk Nowitzki) might try to pull off a trade to acquire Gilbert Arenas.

I think the Wizards will trade the 1st before they trade Arenas. Nobody wants Arenas right now, plus I think he can make a turn around.

The Knicks have been interested in Arenas for quite some time, and are looking for a mentor for Toney Douglas. Donnie might push a Curry + Pick for Arenas deal. Then again i don't think Washington is that stupid. Would they trade Crap for more crap? Maybe, because well Arenas is a screwball and they have a franchise PG in John Wall. Is the danger of having your someone on your team killed worth taking on one of the worst contracts in the NBA right now? That my friends..is the question.

Depending on who the Knicks get in FA, I could see them looking at a swap of Eddy Curry's expiring for Arenas. I'm on the fence about it.

This makes no sense. Why wouldn't they just take Turner at #1 then?

Or **gasp** are you implying that Gilbert is worth the #2?

On the topic, Gilbert cannot be traded for at least 3 more years.

I don't see how Wall is the obvious pick? Turner is just as freakin good.

The only way they could trade him is if they packaged him with Wall.

Knicks never been interested in Arenas. Imma admit if we were under Isiah we probably would have been had him. Anyway, Eddy Curry might be crap but his crap is expiring while Gilbert Arenas has 3-4 more years left on his contract.

No. Lakers need him. Kobe and Arenas will form the greatest ballhogging backcourt in league history.

yes an injury prone, gun packing, extremely overpaid, egotistical player is exactly what we need. even with if he were to get past the injurys and personal issues he gets paid way too much especially for someone whos barely played the past three seasons...

Thats actually a pretty nice trade. Both teams get something out of it.

Raptors take a risk but atleast theres a higher chance of them making the playoffs with Arenas/Calderon/Derozan/Bargs than being stuck with Calderon/Hedo/Bargs for the next 4-5 years. And the Wizards get a nice package of Wall/Hedo/Blatcheto help Wall ease into it and have a decent cast around him plus some cap space to work with to build that team up.

John Wall is hardly a franchise caliber player. Plus, he'll come cheap for three years during his rookie contract. Might as well play them together, and see if they can't scrape together 40 wins and a playoff berth next season.

No one's crazy enough to touch Gilbert's contract, his rep, or anything else associated with him RIGHT NOW.

Chances are, Wiz management are planning the following:

1. waiting until the whole scandal blows over, until another assoc. knucklehead gets into trouble and takes over the headlines.

2. play Gilbert enough so that he becomes enticing enough to trade. For anything. Even a pack of trading cards (without the bubblegum will do).

This is actually the best chance wizards have of landing lebron or bosh/stat...you have john wall who is a freak of nature point guard gilbert arenas who plays pg but is really a 2 guard...if they keep howard he'd be good coming off the bench maybe even starting...and whatever superstar they get

John Wall
Agent zero
Josh Howard
Lebron or Bosh or stat
Blatche

someone will take a chance on him but it will come at a cheap price. They might be able to deal him to the knicks if they don't get the big name FA's, I think that is the best fit for both the knicks and arenas

I have a feeling the Raps are gonna swing for the fences just like they did with O'neal then Marion and now Turk and bring Arenas in. Maybe Bosh stays if he feels the Raps can make some noise with him and Arenas? It's a huge risk but it could potentially work out great for the Raps. Turk would have to be sent the other way.

I always thought the Wizards were going to get rid of Arenas anyway because of the off-court issues, HORRIBLE contract, and the team going in a new direction (ie. Butler/Jamison trades).

Now, them getting John Wall all but seals Arenas fate with the Wizards. They arent keeping him, the only hard part is who is going to pick up the 2nd most expensive contract in the NBA.

Run&Gun
05-19-2010, 04:23 AM
I still have no idea why they haven't just voided his contract, other than they would be mad if another team signed him for nothing and he started playing with no problems. I'd say there may be one or two teams that want him but they would only do it if the wizards take huge contracts off their hands and probably give them a pick, maybe Detroit wants him so they can get rid of Hamilton and and Gordon's huge salary?

I think they might be able to get an expiring contract for Arenas if they are willing to trade a pick AND/OR decent prospect along with it.

Wow Agent Zero really gets no love huh? He's not that far removed from being an allstar... Oh well!

A lineup with him Wall, Howard and BLatche would be pretty nice in the East. I don't see how people wouldnt want to at least try out a Arenas/Wall backcourt it would instantly be the best backcourt in the league....

Turner and Wall are gonna be like Melo and Lebron. Wall will be like Mello high scorer and Turner will be a complete player like Lebron. IMO. You can't go wrong with either.

gilbert is untradable.

his contract reflects the player gilbert WAS before he was injured. The last time i remember gilbert actually playing, and playing like an all star was 3-4 seasons ago.
he came back last year and did not look like the gilbert of old.

who is gonna pay that much money for a half ******** player who hasnt played like him self in 4 seasons ? sorry let me rephraze that. who is gonna pay a hundred somthing mill to a half ******** player who hasnt played like himself in 3-4 seasons ??

no one, gilberts a wiz. not in every sence of the term though. the wizards are better off holding on to him and hoping he can be an all star again.

xbrackattackx
05-19-2010, 11:05 AM
And teams that are way over cap and can't do anything for the next couple of years would trade expirings for a not too long ago All-Star and still in his mid 20's.

DC HEELS
05-19-2010, 11:28 AM
No they will not trade Agent 6 bc they already tried that for quite some time now, no one is gonna take that contract. The new owner Ted Leonsis actually likes Gilbert.

Besides I wouldnt want to trade hime anyway, Im not so sure why everyone hates on Gilbery so hard(i guess cause hes a ****)but the dude can ball, he averaged dam near 20 and 10 when he came back from him injury so theres no chance we trade him. John Wall WILL be the pick, he will be the PG, the ball will be in his hands and Gilbert will just have to adjust a little bit, Wall and Gilbert could be a great back court and were just gonna have to pay Gilbert so stay home!

No. They would move Arenas to SG.

Lineup:

C) J.McGee/ Solomon Alabi(30th overall pick)
PF) A.Blatche/ Gani Lawal(2nd rd pick)
SF) N.Young/A.Thorton
SG) G.Arenas/Q.Ross
PG) J.Wall/ R.Foye

No way, IMO, they'll be able to move Arenas contract unless another team is willing to take that big of a contract.

Dont forget, the Wiz got cap space too. Wall/Arenas backcourt + an elite SF, PF or C? I could see Boozer coming to Washington and have McGee come off the bench. The Wizard have the potential to make a pretty solid lineup next season and god for them. They went through a lot of unnecessary internal issues last year and lost a lot of players because of it. I hope they get back to form.
