Of course my favorite Wizards/Courtney Lee connection is:
OKC is hot on the trail as well, and looking to give up ALOT. This seems like an unnecessary move from Washington, as really the only spot left needed to fill is perhaps another backup PG.
But with question marks surrounding Jodie Meeks after barely performing, is Lee a good option?
Let’s take a look:
One more year for Lee but slightly better numbers than Meeks in 3P% and PPG as well as some other areas.
The bigger question is what would the Wizards give up? Selling off Mahimni would leave an injury-prone Jason Smith to back up Dwight, likely a veteran big man contract would have to follow that move.
And as for Rivers, yes it is a huge contract, BUT he also gives the Wiz a bit of attitude and chip on the shoulder play that really only Wall and Keef bring every night. I want to keep him.
My opinion: let’s see what this group has for this season. Let OKC sell the farm for an aging Lee.
