Default First trade of the season Suns and Wizards

I had a feeling a trade was going to go down today.

Hearing: Suns are trading Marcin Gortat to the Wizards. Okafor on his way to Phoenix. More details to come

Wizards are pretty good, just got better. If Wall stays healthy they should be #7 in the EC

They get marshall who they can let develop behind wall. Great trade for the wizards, wonder what the pick they sent back is though

RT @GoodmanESPN: Phoenix gets Wizards' first-round pick in 2014 -- which is protected to No. 12.

This could really hurt us. Gortat is underrated.

Looks like Gortat is the only player dressing up for his new team. Wizards still scary though...

Great tank move by Phoenix. Shed veteran impact player, which in turn avails minutes to prospect in Alex Len, and acquire a pick.

In my mind, there's a lot of overlap with Gortat and Nene on the offensive end. Both decent pick and roll guys, though, which should complement Wall. Still, I don't see this as a move that vaults Washington into a lock for the playoffs.

Wow, cap management

Wizards can now plug a scoring center into their lineup, move Nene to the 4 where he belongs and still have $15+ mil in cap space come July

I'm Predicting Wall averages around 20/4/9 with a steal and a block this year, adding Gortat to their team greatly diminishes our hopes of playoff contention. The Wizards now have a very solid 9 man rotation. Wall/Beal/Porter Jr/Nene/Gortat with Marshall, Webster, Ariza, and Seraphin off the bench.

Of the 6 teams gunning for 6-8, Atlanta, Washington, Detroit, Toronto, Cleveland, Milwaukee is the order I'm predicting they finish.

It's a huge trade yo

Quote:
Phoenix sends Center Marcin Gortat, Point Guard Kendall Marshall, Guard Shannon Brown and Guard Malcolm Lee to the Wizards in exchange for Okafor and a first-round pick.

All four players have just one year remaining on their current contracts with the Suns. Gortat was due $7,727,280 this season, while Shannon Brown is owed $3,500,000, Kendall Marshall with $2,005,560 and Malcolm Lee at $854,389. The team had two more years of team options on Marshall averaging around $2.5 million per season.

Like the Suns players, Washington Center Emeka Okafor has one year left on his deal worth $14,544,687.

According to the Washington Post, Okefore is out indefinitely with a herniated disk in his neck.
Suns-Wizards trade: Marcin Gortat, Kendall Marshall, Shannon Brown, Malcolm Lee traded to Wizards

I guess the 1st round pick is protected, but I haven't seen any details about it.

Suns beat us bad a couple times last year. I'm glad they're in full blown tank mode.
Easy pickin's for the Blazers

The Washington Wizards acquired Kendall Marshall, Shannon Brown and Malcolm Lee on Friday in a deal for Marcin Gortat.

The Wizards will waive those three players as they have a roster crunch.
