The Wizards fined All-Star John Wall for unloading a verbal barrage onto coach Scott Brooks in a recent practice. After Wall and his teammates had been challenged to raise intensity in that session, Wall fired back with "F--- you," to Brooks. Story soon.

He is, but Scott Brooks is a terrible coach.  He ruined OKC and he has ruined Wash.

It's amazing he isn't fired yet. Third year of 5yr/35M deal. 21M to buy him out according to https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/wizards/five-changes-head-coach-scott-brooks-could-make-shake-things-wizards

Wizards center Dwight Howard will be re-evaluated in 2-3 months after undergoing an L4-L5 lumbar microdiscectomy on Friday, per team which said "the disc herniation was causing severe nerve irritation and gluteal pain."

There are maybe 3 teams in the league who would entertain that salary for Wall.

How about:

Rozier, Robin Lopez to WASH
Wall to CHI
CHI 2020 1st rounder to BOS

I wouldn't touch Wall with a 10-foot pole, but the corpse of Lopez and a future 1st is a pretty cheap price for a team that can afford his salary (big market, $50M+ cap room this summer, Carter & Markannen & LaVine under contract for 3 more years).

Washington gets a look at Rozier and the huge salary dump.

Boston gets another 1st rounder asset.

i always thought Miami might try. I know wall trains in Miami over the summer. Also Miami always seems desperate for a star, and they have a lot of random pieces that donít fit perfect together right now so they can definitely sell off some assets

This is not bad, but unfortunately, I think an unprotected first from Chicago is a too much for Rozier. Maybe with a top 20 protection that, after a few years, reverts to a 2nd rounder.
Most talent in the league. We don't want or need AD.

and just like that the Wizards are within a half of game of playoff position and just a game out of the 7th spot with both Orlando and Charlotte fading quickly.

As for the Wizards fire-sale, if Love comes back soon, maybe Love for Porter would make sense for both teams when Love can be traded in January.

don't think of it as an unprotected pick for Rozier but for Wall because that's who they're getting.  Wash may want more than Rozier and Lopez though.  probably one of the C's firsts (would put protections on it like best non-lottery pick perhaps)

Having said that, I wouldn't make the deal because we're more in need of a back up PG/SG off the bench than yet another draft pick.

Makes sense.  They lost out on the Butler sweepstakes.

How about Rozier for Bobby Portis to get this all started.  I know Portis is hurt but I understand he has been scrimmaging with the G-League so should be back soon.  There has been a lot of love for Portis in the past.  Portis would potentially start for us at PF (he is listed as 6'-11").  With the emergence of Markannen, Chicago may see Portis as expendable. Or they might decide to sit tight with Rozier as they need a PG.  Either way, isn't Portis just what we need?

From there, yeah, maybe Rozier, Lopez and probably some picks might get them Wall.

Isn't Portis like a Morris with less shooting, more rebounding, and possibly send teammates to the injured list?

Nah. Right direction, oddly enough, but need more of a pick setter other than our one legit C.
