Top high school basketball prospects Zion Williamson and LaMelo Ball went head-to-head late Wednesday night in an AAU basketball showdown at the NFL Cheap Jerseys Wholesale jam-packed Cashman Center in Las Vegas. NBA stars like Damian Lillard, Andrew Wiggins and Ball’s older brother, Lonzo Ball, were in attendance to watch the two young studs’ matchup.
Washington was reportedly interested in the Paul George NFL Jerseys Nike sweepstakes, potentially offering a sign-and-trade of Otto Porter Jr. for him. Of course, the Pacers shocked the league by trading George to Oklahoma City, so there goes that idea.
Could the Wizards move something for Carmelo Anthony? A package made up of Ian Mahinmi, Jason Smith, Kelly Oubre and a first round pick would work salary-wise and give New York a couple assets, for example. If that’s what it takes to get Wall to commit for four more years, and getting Wall to commit is clearly the Wizards’ top priority, then Washington should consider something like that.
Still, if Anthony isn’t available or he would refuse a trade so close to his hometown of Baltimore since he has a no-trade clause, then it gets trickier. Washington won’t have any cap space after re-signing Porter, assuming they do. (They say they will, and he’s a restricted free agent.)
It’s so much money that bets are on Wall eventually taking this, assuming the team doesn’t let Porter walk for no good reason and can add a decent veteran or two. But for now, it seems like the two are in a firm holding pattern.
