Hi all, not a regular poster, but a regular lurker. While it's exciting to think about the Wizards' potential and the optimism that a rebuilding phase brings, it's also equally disappointing to have to slog through the poor results that go hand in hand with that approach. Anyway, what is the realistic next phase in the Wizards' rebuild? Hope land a superstar wing/scorer in the 2012 draft to pair with John Wall and hope that our front line of Blatche/McGee matures? Why not make a run at Eric Gordon - I'd argue that he would be a good fit. Now, I don't actually know much about him as a player - his stats look appealing and he was a member of the Olympic team and people mention him as an up and coming all-star. What do people think - would a Wall-Gordon backcourt work for us?
Even if it does work in theory, could we even realistically get him? My view is that I can't see him wanting to stick around long-term in New Orleans. Could the Wizards offer NOH enough value to make a trade realistic? Maybe a package built around Nick young + our first round draft pick in (a supposedly loaded) 2012. Would that give them enough value to entice them - would that be a price we should be willing to pay for Gordon given that ours could be a lottery pick. Thoughts?
