Wizards Trade #5 & Scrubs To Timberwolves For Mike Miller & Randy Foye

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Can it be so? Chad Ford says it is. Well NBA Draft party is cancelled.
The Wizards trade Etan Thomas (good move), Oleksiy Pecherov (good move), Darius Songaila (ok move), and...the #5 Pick (DAGGER!) to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Mike Miller & Randy Foye. Bye Bye Stephen Curry...tears...No! Not Possible!
Is Mike Miller the next step to a championship, or just the cheapest option available? I'll go with the latter. Actually Foye may be the better player.
I fully expect the Wizards to make another deal for some kind of big man and get rid of one of the point guards. The Wiz PGs include Gilbert Arenas, Javaris Crittenton, Randy Foye, and Mike James. James and/or Javaris gotta go.
So when this trade goes through (as it is supposed to), the Wiz starting lineup will look like this if Gilbert says he is a PG
PG: Gilbert Arenas
SG: Mike Miller
SF: Caron Butler
PF: Antawn Jamison
C: Brendan Haywood
Or they may have to go with a better idea
PG: Randy Foye
SG: Gilbert Arenas
SF: Caron Butler
PF: Antawn Jamison
C: Brendan Haywood
Miller was rookie of the year in 2001, and 6th man in 2006, but had a letdown of a season last year. Foye scored over 16 ppg last season, but for the terrible T'Wolves.
The T'Wolves get useless Etan Thomas and a huge Center that plays behind the 3 point line and is absolutely terrible in Pech. This gives the Timberwolves the 5th AND 6th Pick in the draft however, which makes up for the other 2 guys. I'm jealous.
Oh and finally, it is about time to get Etan out of town!
