Wizards Wizards tell Wall, Arenas will be moved to SG

Can they even tell Wall this info?

Quote:
The Wizards are expected to use the first overall pick on Kentucky point guard John Wall, would could create a problem in the backcourt with incumbent Gilbert Arenas.

However, Wall says the organization has told him that Arenas will be moved to shooting guard to allow the pair to play together.

"They feel like Gilbert is more a scoring two-guard who can shoot very well and get to the basket," Wall told the Washington Post. "To have two guards in the back court like that would be very dangerous."

Wizards coach Flip Saunders has also told Wall that he will let him run the team's offense.

"I heard [Saunders] likes guards that can score. He helped Chauncey Billups get better and Stephon Marbury. I'm just going to try to go in there and be like those guys," Wall said. "For me to be the type of player I want to be, I have to have the ball in my hands."

I dont know much of Wall, but isnt he very tall and athletic for a PG? I guess arenas would defend the PG and Wall the SG

they're both 6'3''/6'4'' but Arenas looks heavier
Wall is quicker so he most likely will guard PGs, since they tend to be fast

He's 6'4"

If they can find a taker for Arenas he's gone. If not then he'll be moved to SG though. Where else would you put him i guess.

6'4" is usually combo guard height so I guess they can switch on and off.

Unless, they are guarding D-Will, he has some sick cross overs.

Arenas, with his large ego and outgoing persona, is probably going to have something to say about this. If he's moved, I could see a desperate team like Minny taking him for Al Jefferson, if they throw in Nick Young or something. Wouldn't be a bad deal. Have Arenas play the 2 in Minny? And 1 when Flynn's on the bench.

In Toronto? Horrible scenario. At least with Hedo, there's SOME comfort level, with Arenas so much can go wrong. If the Raps get Arenas, it will really show how desperate this team is.

It's better if they ship him out for watever they can get in return. Arenas game is gonna decline real fast and Arenas isn't a guy you want to surround a new talented young rookie. He does plenty of stupid things.
