Rough year for John Wall.

The Wizards guard, who was already out for the year with a heel injury, ruptured his Achilles after falling in his home recently.

Here’s the notice Washington sent to media:


So the Sixers connection here is straightforward. Does this news change Washington’s trade deadline plans? Wall is set to earn the following over the next four years:

  • 2019-20: $38.2 million
  • 2020-21: $41.2 million
  • 2021-22: $44.3 million
  • 2022-23: $47.3 million

They can’t do anything with him right now, so do they move Bradley Beal? Otto Porter?

Does Elton Brand get on the phone with a Jimmy Butler offer?

Would you do it?

So many questions.

  1. If you believe this press release is how this all went down, I got some swampland in Florida to sell you. At home? Announced two days before the trade deadline?

      1. I mean, I’m hoping this is a joke, but just in case…..

        From Wikipedia for the term “Swampland in Florida”

        Swampland in Florida is a figure of speech referring to real estate scams in which a seller misrepresent unusable swampland as developable property. These types of unseen property scams became widely known in the United States in the 20th century, and the phrase is often used metaphorically for any scam that misrepresents what is being sold. Expressions like “If you believe that, then I have swampland in Florida to sell you”, suggests the recipient is gullible enough to fall for an obvious fraud. Similar phrases involve “selling” the Brooklyn Bridge or nonexistent “oceanfront property in Arizona”.

        Lets be clear….I’m a moron, not an idiot.

        1. Most commonly use the expression, ” If you believe this then I have ocean view properties in Iowa to sell you.”

  2. Unless they’re trading for illuminati puppet Lebron, which they aren’t, they won’t get out of the East. 2nd round losers 2 years in a row
