    Listening to Sportstalk radio here in D.C., I have heard it being mentioned three times regarding a Nazr/Brendan Haywood Swap.

    I think the salaries are similar. Haywood, I am not absolutely sold on his Bball skills, however, maybe he plays alongside another NC Alum in Rasheed Wallace, he maybe able to motivate him.

    I do like Antonio Daniels, he plays hard-nosed defense, Etan is out due to injuries moreso than actual games played.

    Etan may play like a beast one night or for the first two qtrs and disappears the rest of the game.

    I would like Antonio Daniels. He went off late in the season after Arenas went down. He would keep CB's motivation in check.

    Swapping out our non-playing bench folks for Haywood and Daniels would be near-perfect IMO.

    Gives us an upgrade over Murray at backup point and at the very least a sizable fella in the middle that can block shots.

    This would free Joe up to be able to draft the best player available or even roll the dice a little with the first rounders.

    I'd take Haywood and Daniels over Murray and Muhammad. but if not, I don't mind.

    It would be a change. Don't know how much we'd benefit, but it definitely couldn't hurt.

    Nazr and Flip don't get you Daniels and Haywood salary wise - you need to toss someone else in.

    Washington needs to break up the center scuffle and might take Nazr straight up for Haywood, but if the Pistons want Daniels too, they're going to need to toss in some more pieces. Might have been a good use for Delfino.

    Why you're right.

    This is a done deal.

    Think trying for Agent Zero would be pushing our luck? :sssh:

    No to Haywood and Thomas. Guys it's not as if Nazr is an absolute scrub, but we would like an upgrade at the position or an easier to swallow contract; Haywood and Thomas offer neither. It's would be a junk for junk swap. With Nazr at least we know we have a professional who will be ready to contribute when/if called upon, no matter how ineffective the contribution may be.

    Haywood is the Black Ostertag....

    That was probably wrong, but it made me laugh when I thought about it.

    His effort is lackluster 80 out of 82 games. None for me thanks.

    I agree, but if I had to have one I'd much rather have Etan Thomas out of the 2.

    Only problem is, Thomas is a poor man's Brian Grant...after the knee surgeries.

    or perhaps we just disagree.

    I remember Kelser talking him up before also. And watching him play for Syracuse vs MSU in 2000, but hey what would I possibly know.

    His job would be to muscle some peeps, rebound, set screens, and finish dump offs. Maybe shoot a jump hook or 2. All things I'd be pretty comfy with him doing.

    ...don't mind that you disagree. It's just that it's 2008 (NBA season-wise) and his play of late has been less than inspiring over the last 2 seasons.

    Right, and the difference between what Brian Grant did and what you just mentioned issss......????? And Grant did it to the tune of earning $15 mill/yr, and getting you 18 & 9rbs, and hitting the mid-range.....so baically Thomas does, what Grant did, but just not as good.......which would make him a POOR MAN' BRIAN GRANT.

    Grant was smaller, had a cooler tattoo, and was a much much much better outside shooter and player in general I agree...

    Etan is a better shot blocker and plays bigger. More of a banger, where Grant was more of a pick and pop guy.

    But hey I guess all black dudes with natty dreads are the same to you.
