The Washington Wizards are one of the biggest messes in the league ending the season with a 19-63 record. Gilbert Arenas and Antawn Jamison got big contracts, then Arenas got injured. Trade rumors about Jamison going to Cleveland and Injuries to the Wizards big men didn't help.
This season is one to forget for Wizards' fans, but management has to remember not to make the same mistakes. Here are three things the Wizards' front office should do.
The Wizards made the mistake to sign him to six-year $111 million deal last summer, and so far he's played two games and a surgery. The problem with the Wizards wasn't offering him that contract, but offering it when they knew he wasn't even 100 percent ready to play. The reality is they have to trade him. I know what you're thinking, nobody would want to take that contract and if so, for what? I'll tell you in my next slide.
The Wizards have the fifth pick in the draft and the class being so thin in what the Wizards need is a 7-footer.
The best thing to do is trade the pick to anyone interested. The Team that would make a deal with the Wizards would be the Grizzlies. The Wizards can Trade Gilbert Arenas and the fifth pick to the Grizzlies for Darko Milicic and Mike Conley.
It doesn't look good any way you look at it, but this deal is to shed cap room for Washington and for Memphis they can get Hasheem Thabeet with the second pick and probably Brandon Jennings with the fifth to replace Conley. Then they might get a healthy Agent 0.
Squadala we're off!
