Nene, Okafor, and Ariza. damn. that cap is beyond fu*ked.
i dont get why you say that??? we were going to pay 13 mill of the 23 that was owed to lewis to go away...and have cap space for what??? we would have gave some player at least 5 to 7 mill to help the situation in the form of a vet. Now we have a vet who had a decent but below average season because he did not have a pass first point. Okafor is so underated that its funny. lol. 12 for a player to play is better than paying someone to leave for nada. This trade is a good one, we needed people to help us compete. Now Nene can go to the 4, we have a starting 3 that can put up more than 8 points, and Beal is on the way. Good move, the free agents this year(other than Beasley) did not impress me at all..............i do believe we are about to flip Oak and Crawford for another 1st round pick. My gut is telling me we will get Jones III

How did the Wizards win?? Not sure blowing out your salary cap for an 8 seed is considered a win.
this deal is the same as paying someone the 5 mil exception this year, now next years cap will be hit a bit, but im sure. Oaks contract is not fully guaranteed in the last year, just like Lewis' deal was not. Yall are sleeping on the fact that there was not any real bigs in the free agent market. I was really hoping we dealt Crawford and Booker for Ed Davis though. Damn.

here's a good read on the trade and the salary cap implications.

But for right now, it's important to note the salary-cap implications of this deal. They are real, and they are spectacular. Well, maybe not spectacular, but I just wanted to work in a Seinfeld reference.

Make the jump for more.

Star-divide

Assuming the trade goes through, here is the Wizards' salary data for next season:

Emeka Okafor: $13.5 million
Nene: $13 million
Trevor Ariza: $7.3 million
Andray Blatche*: $7.2 million
John Wall: $5.9 million
No. 3 pick**: $4.1 million
Jan Vesely: $3.2 million
Kevin Seraphin: $1.8 million
Chris Singleton: $1.6 million
Trevor Booker: $1.4 million
Jordan Crawford: $1.2 million
Shelvin Mack: $762,000
No. 32 pick**: 762,000

*=Likely Amnesty candidate.

**=Equal to the slotted first-year salary of the 2011 No. 3 and No. 32 picks. Those numbers are expected to stay the same this year.

TOTAL: $61.72 million

TOTAL WITHOUT BLATCHE: $54.52 million.

NOTE: This does not include any cap holds for existing free agents James Singleton, Cartier Martin, Brian Cook or Morris Almond.

This means that the Wizards will not likely be a big free-agent player this summer, even if Blatche is released via the Amnesty clause. The salary cap will be set at $58 million, so that should eliminate all high-level and even mid-level free-agent prospects. The most the Wizards could do is sign someone for potentially half of the value of a mid-level exception.

The more interesting scenario is next summer. Here's the Wizards' situation then, a.ssuming Blatche is let go:

Emeka Okafor: $14.5 million*
Nene: $13 million
Trevor Ariza: $7.7 million**
John Wall: $7.5 million***
2012 No. 3 draft pick: $4.3 million
Jan Vesely: $3.3 million
Kevin Seraphin: $2.8 milllion***
Trevor Booker: $2.35 million***
Jordan Crawford: $2.2 million***
Chris Singleton: $1.7 million
2012 No. 32 draft pick: $762,000
2013 first-round pick: ????
2013 second-round pick: ???

*=Can exercise an early-termination option and become a free agent; this is what he's owed if he doesn't.

**=Can exercise a player option and become a free agent; this is what he's owed if he doesn't.

***=Eligible for a contract extension, but it would not kick in until the following year.

NOTE: Does not include any cap holds.

TOTAL: $60.11 million, not including draft picks.

That means that, barring bounce-back seasons from Ariza and/or Okafor that cause them to opt out of their current deals, the Wizards probably won't be a free-agent player in 2013 either. Essentially, they've decided that Nene, Ariza and Okafor are their free-agent acquisitions for the next two years, with Nene also being one for the two years after that. This also means that the Wizards will not be able to execute unbalanced trades with the salary cap, which could be even more valuable that using the space to sign free agents in the coming years, with many teams likely to shed long deals to get under the luxury tax before harsher penalties kick in after the 2012-13 season.

The Wizards clearly are a better team now than they were before making this trade. It remains to be seen if the salary-cap cost is worth that improvement.

The Wizards clearly are a better team now than they were before making this trade. It remains to be seen if the salary-cap cost is worth that improvement.

Basically if the Wizards play their cards right in either 2013 or 2014 when a couple big name players are FA's, they can become real playoff contenders.



I know it says you won't really be able to go after free agents next year but I think it's somehow possible.

All depends on 1. how your wizards team develops & what other big name player can come to Washington and really help Wall.

10 points and 8 rebounds per game is above average for todays nba centers, considering that Roy Hibbert made the all star team averaging 12 points and 8 rebounds
