wiz would never give up both Etan and Haywood dats jus dumb cuz ur not gonna find many bigs available thats better than them...

but uh i would just like to see the Wiz stand pat and see how this team pans out instead of trading away pieces or adding more and messing with the chemistry.. i figure if pechorov plays up to even half the potential eveyone says he has and everyone is healthy then this years team will be much better

After watching Pechorov played for the first two summer league games, he is no way a "7-foot Songaila." He got pushed around easily and cannot hold his ground, nor does he has a post gmae.

I didn't watch the last game, but his stat line looked pretty good 26 and 14.  It's going to take him awhile to get his barings with the NBA, but he's got potential.  Also from most sources I've read it looks like McGuire's going to turn into a fairly decent player.

As far as going for Magloire, he's a decent enough player and a better player than both Haywood and Thomas, but he doesn't fit the Wizards system at all or how Eddie Jordan wants the team to play on offense.  He doesn't move all that well and is really only good in a half court set (which is why he flourished to a degree with the Hornets).  But he's plodding, he doesn't look to make outlet passes, and he may be the slowest player in the league right now.  There's a good reason why the Wizards didn't go after him, just because he's better than what they have now, doesn't mean he's good for the team.

magloire would be just the same as thomas or haywood, the system the wiz play is moreless just guard play that why larry hughes had all-star number!!, Haywood and thomas both had better years than jamal

Jamal has got worse since he was the worst all-star ever(it true Big z was injured and the east had no other good bigs!!),  everythin has gone down hill, he rarely blocks shots now, his ft percentage has gone from 75(good for a center to low 50's(shaq level) he cant hit the jumper very good anymore, he quite lazy and cant do simple picks.

Jamal=etan=haywood= average!!! But would you want to add a 3rd turkey to 2 big turkeys anyways?? to your team?

I'm happy with the way Blatche is developing, a little excited about Pesh in general, and McGuire looks like he's going to be a decent enough player, so I'm hoping they move Haywood and Thomas at some this summer.  Let's just say I have faith in Grunfeld.

I'm guessing that (and I could be wrong because no actual numbers have been released) the Nets used their entire mid-level exception on Magloire, which he isn't worth at all.  He doesn't fit the Wizards system in the least which is why they never even considered pursuing him.

Pechorov did play better in 3rd and 4th games than his first two (he didn't play in the 5th). But his inside scoring was basically result of good passes and not of his post moves. I think he benefited from the fact that Miles is a pass-first point guard (and McGuire is a pretty good passer too). When playing with a score-first point guard like Gilbert, he would need to be able to hold off his defenders, which Songaila can do pretty well, but Pechorov seems have trouble doing. On defense he also have problem holding his position against stronger guys.

OTOH, he does have a longer range than Songaila and can drain 3pts.

BTW, I also think Miles can be the 3rd point guard of this team. He is a more natural point guard and can run the offense better than either Donell Taylor or Roger Mason.

Yeah, McGuire looks promising, handles the ball pretty well, athletic, versatile. I think he will get some minutes during the season.

Nick Young is obviously a scorer but sometimes his drives look wild. I am not sure he can be pressed into the 6th man role right away.

But this after all is just summer league. We will know more as the season starts.
