Early rumors suggest that the Washington Wizards are going to sign nine-time all-star Dirk Nowitzki. If that happens then there will be pressure on the Wizards to resign Josh Howard to shore up the 3.
Although the Wizards have been burned recently by giving contracts to quasi-stars after serious knee injuries (three years into his big deal Gilbert Arenas has still not justified a $1.1 million contract, let alone his $110 million contract) but, Howard plays good defense, and led a D-league quality team to a 3-0 record before he went down with his season-ending torn ACL.
Assuming the Wizards draft Wall with their first pick that means their starting five would be Wall, Arenas, Howard, Nowitzki, and Blatche. Coming off the bench they'd have McGee and Thorton for size, and Miller, Foye and Livingston backing-up the three through one. Basically, most of last season's starting five becomes an impressive second team.
Considering the Celtics are only getting older and the uncertainty in Atlanta and Cleveland, this acquisition could easily make the Wizards a contender in the East. If they sign Nowitzki and resign Howard, and everyone stays healthy DBSF has them as a two or three seed in the East next year. Of course, this would also mean that the Wizards are rebuilding with veterans (besides Wall), which--in the case of Arenas, Butler, and Jamison--has proved unsuccessful in the past.
