We also have the MLE and BAE and a little room under the luxury tax. We could also go over the tax and get under before the end of the league year in June 2022.
The issue is Tommy has no idea what he's doing with wing players.
Is a 6th man quality wing enough to get the Wizards past the first round?
How about the second?
I don't think the Wizards get past Philly even if that had mid-tier starting SF on the roster. A Mikal Bridges, or Andrew Wiggins, does not elevate the team very far - at least, not when it counts. What you're laying out is exactly the reason why this team has been a treadmill and post-season joke for 20 years.
A Mikal Bridges is exactly what this team needs: A young, athletic wing who can shoot 3s and defend his a** off.
3pt shooting and perimeter defense should be the priority for this offseason...both in the draft and free agency.
I like Miles Bridges even better than Mikal - Miles being a dynamic player who improved dramatically in the 2nd half of the season. Both Bridges' fit the modern archetypes that seem to be what teams are looking for. Forwards seem to be in short supply this draft - which is why I think we'll end up picking Kisspert if he's there. He's not going to be the defender that either Bridges is, but he's the best long distance shooter in the draft - with the next on his level being... Sam Hauser - and the Wiz should buy a late 2nd to pick him.
