    Kyle, was just wondering what you think the possibility is of wizards maybe trying to trade for a big like David Lee if nene’s injury continues to be serious and he misses quite a bit of time? Not sure how they could swing that salary other than trading maybe Webster to make up at least some of the salary when he gets back. I know Lee has a similar veteran presence that nene brings even tho he has sorta been injured and expendable in Golden State. Just wondering, seeing that Washington may struggle at least a little against tough teams without nene going forward. Answer back if you can, thanks.

    • Jacob,

      With Lee’s own injury issues, on top of his very poor defense, I think the Wizards are better off sticking it out with Nene.

      The contract of both players ends in 2016, so that’s a wash.

      Feels weird to say, but I trust Nene to suck it up and the trainers to manage his plantars (an injury plenty have dealt with, including Tim Duncan) over this season and next more than I would trust the team defense trying to make it work without Nene (and Lee instead).

      You see how the Wizards have played the last 3 games with Nene out, especially the offense…

        Ok I get what you are saying, thanks. I guess i just didn’t realize how bad Lee was defensively. Probably not worth it to trade webster and whoever else. Could use a little more size down low however maybe a cheaper solution may be a smarter alternative in order to get someone who can actually contribute unlike Blair. Seraphin and Humphries seem to be the best at backing up at the center position as of now. Thanks again for answering my question.
