"There's no way we could have gotten someone in the draft that compares to the production and experience level of these two players," team president Ernie Grunfeld said. The Wizards dealt three forwards -- Etan Thomas, Darius Songaila and Oleksiy Pecherov -- and gained two guards, leaving a roster imbalance that could lead to more wheeling and dealing. "We might get out of (the draft) altogether," Grunfeld said. "Very seldom do you get a 32nd pick who's going to come right in and help a veteran ballclub."

You thought that draft night became boring when Ernie traded his first rounder? Just wait until he unloads that 2nd rounder too.
