    Marcin Gortat was traded to the Wizards in a 5 player trade, the main recieving piece to Phoenix being Emeka Okafor. Looks like we won't be getting him after all. :/

    It seems like a weird trade from Washington side IMO, sure Shannon Brown and Gortat can help a little but last year this team was dominant defensively and really turned a corner once Wall did. I know Emeka and his 14.5 million had to go eventually but they are much worse defensively and they lose a first round pick.

    Emeka 14 mill expiring and 2014 FIRST rounder and all you get is Marcin Gortat expiring, Kendall Bust Marshall, and Shannon Brown?!?!?

    Never underestimate the bottom teams..to succeed this season we need to sweep them all without exception.

    Wizards are STOKED! They got the deal of a lifetime. Trading their oft injured Okafor for a handful of talented Suns. That run for the final spots in the Eastern playoff race should be very entertaining this year. As I think these reinforcements for Washington should give them a run at the postseason.

    I got 10 bucks that Okafor is cut before season end and ends up on either Miami or most likely the Clippers

    Would be a good pick up for Clippers


    Riverman makes a great point, we MUST beat the bottomfeeders

    Plumlee looked like the player we hoped Leonard would be.

    ^ Exactly.  If Phoenix IS trying to tank as Riverman speculated above, they had better forfeit future contests with Portland, or suffer more unwanted W's.


    Also becoming very clear why the franchise has abandoned these boards meese.

    Anybody else expect Mason Plumlee to dominate a game? Phoenix could not miss a shot most of the night.

    I liked Plumlee and he was a Duke they tend to do well with forwards.

    ^ much better with forwards than with PGs...especially as of late.  We all will be served a plate full of reminder tomorrow night, as our team faces off against the Nuggets and one Kenneth Faried.  Portland passed on Faried, taking Nolan Smith instead.  Faried will be on the floor and will be a force...Nolan?

    Never really considered Irving a Blue Devil.  Eight regular season games and three tourney games a college career is not, IMO.  CLE got Irving much the way they did James...right out of HS

    My opinion, Gortat is better than Lopez but it is over now

    WE have to play smart with Lopez on the board
