The Wildcard?

The biggest question (beyond will Rubio slip to #4) is will Washington trade out of the #5 spot and what will it take to move up to that spot.

From what I have read, you keep hearing a late first rounder, possibly a cheap young player, and someone able to take on Etan Thomas' contract. If that's really all it takes, it's down to us and Memphis, and I, for one, would love to trade for the #5 pick.

I believe Thomas' contract is expiring, so while it is taking on more money next year, it doesn't hurt the future cap flexability of the team, so really it comes down to whether you can get the Wizards to bite on just a cap dump and the #23.

If we were to get the #5 pick and Rubio slips to #4, we could probably put together a package of Rubio and Jordan Hill that would tempt the Clips into giving up Griffin. Or, we could even use the pick, packaged with Donte Greene and the first pick in the 2nd (Claver, Mills?) to tempt PHO into dealing Amare.

Coming out of the draft with both Rubio and Stoudemire or Griffin (with the hope we pick up John Wall next year) would be unbelievable.

Is it a stretch? Yes. Probably going to happen? No. But that pick would open up some interesting possibilities.
