Comment Opinions Please. Is This Good? Read The Full Description As All The Trade Details, Draft Picks, & Free Agent Signings Are There.

1. Trade Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Corey Kispert, Kyle Kuzma, & 2026 2nd To The Minnesota Timberwolves For D’Angelo Russell, Jaylen Nowell, & 2022 DEN 2nd(#51)

Why ?: Washington needs a long term starting point guard next to Bradley Beal. Russell would be a nice second option as he can run the pick & roll with either Porzingis & Gafford while also shooting well from deep.

2. Deal Ish Smith, Vernon Carey Jr, 2023 BOS 2nd, & 2027 BOS 2nd To The Sacramento Kings For Richaun Holmes

Why ?: To acquire a solid defensive center that can either be a great 6th man or starter next to Porzingis. This deal ensures that KP will play strictly as a PF in order to stay healthy.

3. Draft Ochai Agbaji(SF, 6’6 215) With The #10 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: He projects to be a solid three & D player in the league with his great 3pt shooting & defensive abilities. I see him as a Malik Beasley but with better defending.

4. Draft Gabriel Procida(SG, 6’7 195)With The #51 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: Wizards land another great 3pt shooter here that can play off the ball well. Procida has nice size at 6’7 & reminds me of a Duncan Robinson.

5. Draft Scotty Pippen Jr(PG, 6’2 175) With The #56 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft

Why ?: Scottie Pippen’s son. And Washington can also use a young point guard to develop for the future.

6. Resign Bradley Beal To A Five Year Contract Worth $225 Million

Why ?: This is obvious, Beal is their franchise player & should be retained.

7. Sign Delon Wright Using The MLE To A Three Year Contract Worth $27 Million

Why ?: Wright will be a key piece off the bench as a backcourt defender that can also shoot. He played very well in Atlanta off the bench & next to Trae Young. The Wizards could also potentially run a three guard lineup with Wright at the SF position in closing game situations.

8. Sign Serge Ibaka Using The MLE To A Two Year Contract Worth $5 Million

Why ?: A veteran to have off the bench that can provide nice front court defense.

9. Sign Ben McLemore To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum($2.18 Million)

Why ?: A veteran to have off the bench that can shoot well from deep.
