    McGee May Be Available Now... Go Get Him Danny!

    Per Marc Stein @ ESPN:

    The Wiz have been shopping Andray Blatche for months with no luck in hopes of truly changing the team culture around prized youngsters John Wall and Jan Vesely. But sources say the Wiz are now weighing whether it's time to finally surrender McGee -- who for all his potential still routinely finds himself at the heart of Washington's ongoing turbulence -- on the condition that his new team take Blatche as well.



    If Blatche doesn't work out we still have the Amnesty option.

    Im a BIG fan of McGee. He is young, athletic, and has great potential. I think we could trade Ray, JO and a pick for him, or something like that

    You can't amnesty a player that you have traded for.

    Not sure ... I think Red/Russ said any contract signed before the lockout could be amnestied so if that's true it wouldn't have to be an existing roster contract.

    No, he is correct (for once).  You cannot amnesty a player you trade for.  So.....keep them both until at least the end of the year!!

    Can never have too many bigs!

    Problem with trading for McGee is his low cap figure makes it tough to match salaries

    Danny should do anything he can to get McGhee. I could see the Wiz having a fire sale on their roster. An article I read said Wall is the only untouchable. I wonder how true that is. If the C's offer Rondo, Allen, Bass, and a first for McGhee, Wall, Young, and Lewis. Lewis's contract is terrible, but it expires next year. In a way, his contract is really better than Blatche's, but dealing him will allow the Wiz to essentially start over this offseason. Would you guys take back Lewis's bad contract for the chance at Wall and McGhee? Remember the only big names in free agency this year are Howard and Williams. Neither is likely coming to the celtics

    Found this at HoopsWorld ... Larry Coons Chat:

    * Amnesty can only be used for players who were with the team on 12/9. If they sign a new contract or were traded, they can’t be amnestied.

    So that won't work ... they'd have to trade him

    Just read a post where the Wiz say anybody on their team can be had except Wall if the team is willing to take Blatche. Danny should be calling

    Nope ... Don't want Lewis's contract ... rather have Blatche ... a change of scenery could be all he needs then his contract won't look so bad. I'd sweeten the deal for Young though ... Stick with Rondo over Wall. Rondo could get you DWill ... otherwise he'll be effective with a fast break team.

    McGee, Blatche & Young for Ray, JON & a #1 (add Bradley or Moore if need be) ...

    I have watched Wall closely he will be a loser his whole career. His game while spectacular is horrible.  Stay away.

    Glad you said that, Wall cannot shoot at all although unlike Rondo he insists on doing it.

    Let's see but I think Wall is a bust.  Maybe he should try the two guard.  I really think he is one of the dumbest players I have seen.  Which says a lot on that team they are all really stupid.

    Re: McGee May Be Available Now... Go Get Him Danny!

    From Stein's Weekend Dime @ ESPN:

    />>> ... teams out there dread absorbing long-term contracts these days, even more so than they used to, knowing that the league's new and far stricter luxury-tax scale will be implemented leading into the 2013-14 season. The growing consensus seems to be that it's better to start over from scratch after a doomsday departure in the NBA's brave new world as opposed to trying to make the best salvage trade you can find.


    Something else teams treasure in the post-lockout NBA: first-round draft picks.

     

    Teams love them more than ever thanks, again, to the new collective bargaining agreement and the new luxury-tax scale on the way. That's especially true in 2012 with a pool of draftees in June that draftniks will tell you is d-e-e-p.

     

    It's that sort of thinking, sources said, that has prevented Indiana from doing a deal so far this month and isn't likely to change between now and next Thursday.

     

    The Pacers are the only team in the league with the available salary-cap space to absorb Chris Kaman's contract without sending a player back to New Orleans. They also could benefit hugely from the arrival of a sage like Nash and were an offseason contender to sign Portland's Jamal Crawford, who is already available again via trade. In all those cases, though, sources say Indy is reluctant in the extreme to surrender future first-round picks.

     

    It might be different if the Pacers thought they had a good chance of re-signing Nash. But the payoff in the cases of Kaman and Crawford apparently isn't robust enough to get the Pacers (and other teams, for that matter) to part with a pick that has the potential to quickly transform into a quality contributor playing on a favorable rookie contract.  <<<


    So Ainge must be feeling the squeeze ... can't get decent players/picks for  assets he wants to move and can't acquire anyone without giving up a pick.

Posted by Mployee8[/QUOTE] You guys may be right. One of the main reasons I thought of possiblly including Lewis in this trade is because I am really apprehensive about trading for Blatche. I have never liked his game, and I think he will likely be a waste of space on the C's roster for the next few years. McGhee however is a stud. I know he is not the sharpest player, but this guy has incredible ability. To me, he and Deandre Jordan are basically the same player, but McGhee probably has more upside. If Danny can get them to include Nick Young, I think it's a no brainier deal for the C's

    Re: McGee May Be Available Now... Go Get Him Danny!

    From HoopsWorld.com :

    />>>

    One team that sticks out as a contender for McGee is the Boston Celtics, who have been looking for a center since dealing Kendrick Perkins last season. Remember, Boston has the Los Angeles Clippers’ first-round pick as well as a second rounder from the Milwaukee Bucks in addition to future second-round picks from the Minnesota Timberwolves and New Jersey Nets. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but everything could be packaged together very easily.

    Boston also has its own picks as well as young players such as combo guard Avery Bradley and last year’s first-round pick JaJuan Johnson. Again, these all sound like small pieces, but when you consider all of the holes the Wizards have to fill on their roster, a potential deal looks more feasible.

    The Celtics also have over $40 million coming off the books next season, so they would be able to afford McGee going forward. And remember, not every potential suitor would have the chance of re-signing the former Nevada star that Boston would. Obviously McGee doesn’t have a say in where he gets traded and he would be a restricted free agent this summer, but the Celtics’ assets and cap flexibility make them a possible destination if the Wizards are ready to deal the future of the NBA.

    More good stuff from HoopsWorld:

    Larry Coon

    The Celtics are at a crossroads. In fact, last weekend at the Sloan conference I told a Celtics exec that I thought his team was one of the two lynchpins of the entire trade season (along with Orlando) and he agreed — so much depends on which direction the Celtics decide to go. If they want to keep their core together for one more run, they may dump Rondo for some size. If they want to start the rebuilding process, then they get something out of guys like Allen & Pierce while they can. In either event, I don’t think they let things stay the way they are now.
