Statistically, it looks like a bad signing, but you never know. Would've preferred Steven Gray if he were available.

Know nothing about him other that he is a journeyman.

I liked what I saw of Chris Wright, but it won't matter much, Temple will be lucky to play at-all.
Guys on a message board could do a better job managing the Wizards than Ernie Grunfeld.

Temple has been pretty good in the D League. I posted some numbers in another thread. Small sample size, but still -- solid play. Worth a look.

Yeah, the Wizards are two-deep in star power at every position. Hope Temple's a good cheerleader.

OTOH, if I'm Ernie/Randy, I would consider this an opportunity to audition JC's replacement.

JC's replacement? Crawford is considered a building block for all we know.
..let's keep in mind that while the Wizards were trading for Okafor and Ariza, giving away a draft pick and cap room, bypassing the free agent market and rejecting a trade for Harden, Leonsis was publicly congratulating himself for being smart. - Nivek

Yeah.

Not much point in talking championship, however when you know the owner is aspiring simply to make the playoffs.

He looks like Raja Bell but plays like Jeremy Lin. Take that for what it's worth, good or bad.

If Wall comes back and they make the 8th seed, I'll be all in rooting for the Wizards.

At 4-22, in order for them to get to 40 wins, they would need to go 36-20. That would be the best basketball I've seen them play in the last 6-7 years, and a rate the Bullets last played at in the 80s.

Sure, make the 8th seed.
It's not fool's gold. The Wizards are for real! Otto Porter is going to be a good one.

Mediocrity and ticket sales may be the owner's motivators. I am sick of thinking of how badly things are messed up for Washington. What I want to see is SOMEHOW the Wizards do like the Redskins. When the Skins were 3-6, nobody saw six straight wins and the possibility of a 7th, with the playoffs the prize.

If I'm going to delude myself why not? It would be a wild fantasy, but it is possible that Nene's outburst can be the rallying cry and the team can go something like 38-18 from the time of his comments. I guess anything is possible.

Garrett comes from a good family. I wouldn't be surprised at all if he finds a niche and sticks in the NBA. Signing Webster and giving him a shot are the only things I've liked in the past 6 months from the FO. Everything else has been stuff I didn't like or care about.
