View Full Version : Nets Trade Yi Jianlian To Wizards

The Nets have gotten another step closer toward their ultimate goal of hitting the $33-million mark in bankroll by dumping Yi Jianlian on the Washington Wizards, in a move that will be announced in a few hours.

In return, the Wiz are sending the Nets Quinton Ross’s $1.146 contract, which enables the Nets to increase their cap space to precisely $30 million – a nice round number that will get you LeBron James ($16.5M) and a stud who can start out at $13.5M.

Hes not a starter in the NBA but he had some big games for New Jersey.

It's funny to watch teams this offseason give up ACTUAL talent for nothing. Then, when some of them don't land one of the big names, they will be the joke of the NBA... well most of the teams doing it already are. Who really wants to play for NY or NJ?

If the nets can bring in some marquee Fa's then this trade is fine. However if they dont, they wasted a player that has a big fan base for nothing

The Asian fan base will follow him also. Maybe Wizards trying to up some sells? Help play for Arenas.


I heard he was getting his stride at the end of last season for the Nets.

GREAT MOVE for the Wiz!!!! Building a team for the future!! And getting China fans so thats more money! All they need is a future SG if Arenas doesnt work out but i see him working out fine just to prove everyone wrong and to make up for last season

Yi
Blatche

6th Man- Hinrich
Foye
McGee

Blatche plays PF and Mcgee is looking like a stud at center. I think Yi will be a Bench Contributor.

MD has a sizable Asian population mainly in Howard County & Montgomery County & Northern VA has a sizable Asian population also. There are a lot of major technology companies down there.

Great move by the Wizards. They arent going to be active in Free Agency but they are getting talent for their open cap space.

Who's next? Michael Beasley from the Heat? An Eddy Curry/Wilson Chandler package?

Its amazing how teams want to trim down salary.

Yi is versatile. Hes too inconsistent to start but if he can improve his 3 PT shooting he could be very good for the Wizards. Hes already up to 250lbs after coming into the NBA at around 220lbs.

He doesn't get enough credit for his athleticism.

If we got him on the Warriors. He'd bring in about 1,000 extra ticket sales per game. :laugh2:

Yi is not a starter.

This trade makes sense because they need a veteran to backup Lopez & Favors... not another journeyman on a rookie contract. They can get a veteran with experience to teach those 2 some things and help them develop.

A secondary benefit is the cap space, but the $2.5M isn't that significant.

The Wizards FO believes in this guy so much they said last season he was the only untradable piece. He is raw and when I said "Stud" I meant future talent should have been more clear.

Yi is overrated. His real value was the fact that he still had potential to get better. Yes, the potential was there, but he was a liability. He either had a really good game or a really bad one. There was no middle ground. And the sad thing is he only had...maybe...10 good games in his entire Nets career.

Yi had no inside game. There were times when he missed dunks, missed TONS of wide open 3's, and had rebounds slip out of his fingers. Nets fans will remember all the jokes in the game threads about how it looked like he was playing the game with his hands covered in butter. The ball would literally just slip out and fall into a defender's hands.

Yi has potential, a lot of it. He could be a very good player. He bulked up a ton last year (compared to the previous year), but he still plays SO soft. He's afraid to get physical in the paint. Unless he can get a more consistent shot then he won't be productive in the league without being able to get physical. He's inconsistent with his inside game and his perimeter game. The guy is 7 feet with range. It's just sad. He's SUCH a tease.

We free up $3 mil in cap space ... therefore I'm happy. I'd rather get a free agent then be teased by him any longer. Plus his lack of defense really hurt the team.

This is a good trade for the Nets. Opens up more PT for Favors, get more cap space to bring in a better player. Yi is not that bad but he's inconsistent. Granted he is 22 and there is room for improvement but as of right now, Nets feel they could get someone better.

Hi there young lady... could you please understand the game of basketball before you post here again because you are making no sense what soever with any of your arguments.

I never said he was a bum. I am a huge fan of his but also a big critic and he did suck a lot for NJ last season. I mean the team had 12 wins and he was their start PF who avg 12 and 7. If that equates to him having a good year then you must really have no idea what you are speaking of.

Dude has major potential but he's yet to tap into it. He's no scrub but he's not as good as you are making him out to be.

I heard he was getting his stride at the end of last season for the Nets.

Yeah he started shooting a little better but for him to be a 7 footer and play PF his defense is very insufficient. Thus making him a role player at best.

Only thing that upset me is losing the Chinese fan base but I'm sure Prokhorov will still globalize succesfully.

Wow exactly what I am as well...

That being said... couldn't he have had a bad year due to the lack of team success? Surely playing with a PG like Wall would do wonders for him. CP3 made David West into an AS. Not saying Yi is like West.

Harris isn't exactly a slouch at PG. He's definitely not as good as Chris Paul, but Yi was inconsistent in every aspect of his game. His offense was SO inconsistent. 1 night he scores 30 points, then he goes 2 weeks where he'll have a few games of 6 points. He played no defense at all. I thin I saw him block like 5-10 total shots here. I know it's more than that, but he leaves no positive lasting impression on defense. Most of the rebounds he gets are when they bounce right at him and even then he sometimes lets them bounce right out of his hands. He doesn't use his body AT ALL when playing defense. He also has no defense against guys on the perimeter. He'll stay about 6 feet or so away, thus leaving them wide open shots, and he doesn't even put jump to try to block it or distract them. The least he could do is throw his hands up and make him about a 9+ foot distraction, but nope ... he just stands there like a lump.

The potential is there, but there are tons of guys who come into the league with potential. Yi could have been similar to Dirk, but it's up to him to become that caliber player. He showed the ability to put up 30/10 games, but most of his games seemed to be about 12/6. Those numbers would be alright for a bench player, but Yi was seen as a starter and I just don't know if he ever will be what everyone thought.

$3mil in cap space is more valuable to the Nets than the revenue he brings the team. He's easily replaceable and gives the team much needed cap space. Thus, it is a good trade.

It seems like the Nets are just trying to cleanup some room to try and sign a marquee free agent, much like what Chicago, Miami, and New York are doing. But the thing is, the Nets don't lead for the services of any of the big time players. They aren't getting Dwayne Wade. They aren't getting Lebron James or Chris Bosh.

Wow exactly what I am as well...

That being said... couldn't he have had a bad year due to the lack of team success? Surely playing with a PG like Wall would do wonders for him. CP3 made David West into an AS. Not saying Yi is like West.

I 100% disagree.... West is West no matter what Paul does. Yes Paul makes him better but Paul or no Paul he's going to hit that open 17 ft jumper more than half the times, Yi on the other hand will not. Yi is yet to tap into his potential, though he is not garbage he is yet to reach that level of consistency where one can deem him a solid Nba player much less a starter. Wall or no Wall he would have had similar numbers last season. Hopes he improves next though.

I disagree with that. There are some times where Nets players do not pass it to him when hes open... Wall can certainly help with that. Hes improved every season, so no reason why he shouldn't.

Wizards are doing pretty well to get decent players from other teams. Taking advantage of all the cap crazy teams.

Dude get a life, its a forum!!! I never said he would be an all star
I said he would be a good contributor, Its my opinion get over it!!!
You always have something to say about my post and say i dont know what im talking about, but never quote anybody else that says he can be a solid guy on the wizards and can turn out to be a good role player since hes 22

don't flatter yourself girl...... you speak such utter trash sometimes i have no choice but to make a comment.

I think Yi has GREAT potential but that doesn't mean it will translate well into the NBA and thus far we haven't seen it translate at all. You spoke of 12ppg and 7 rpg like its a great accomplishment for a 7 foot PF who plays 30+ minutes per game while barely shooting over 40% from the field.

I have no problem with you I have no idea who you are, I just think some stuff you say is simply ridiculous.

kendrick perkins, age 25 7 ft center plays 30+
10 pts and 7.6 rbs

Taj Gibson age 25
9 pts and 7.5 rbs

Andray Blatche age 23 7ft pf that plays 30+
14 pts and 6 rbs shooting .47 % there ya go

I think 12 pts and 7 rbs at the age 22 is a AMAZING achievement for a good role player in the NBA

Great move for the Nets, giving them a bit more flexibility for this summer....but most importantly getting rid of a bum that would demand rotation minutes from people that actually have potential.

you said blatche was good!!! you cant say that if yi isnt...you have to say blatche isnt good but isnt bad either bc they have the same stats and both were on bad teams

You heard people making **** up because they were also speculating on the Chinese Gymnastics that won gold... Obviously the American Media spread it like wild fire.

Yeah I don't think the age rumors are true at all.

Anyway, I could see him being a a good back-up to Blatche.

Yi has a lot of potential, he NEEDS to develop a post presence......anyway I think he's gonna contribute well with the Wizards
