Otto Porter & Earl Clark?

Could the Wizards fix both their forward woes in one foul off season swoop? Otto Porter gives us great height at small forward and a solid basketball I.Q.which as Wizards fans know is invaluable. As well as this he is healthy and will contribute from day one which is what we need.

Earl Clark the 5th year veteran was a good piece in L.A this season, posting solid numbers throughout the year and having a blazing January where the 6'10 stretch shot 54.% from the arch. The guy is a fantastic athlete who is starting to live up to his potential, and with more minutes he could be a nice piece behind Nene. Earl's previous contract was $1.24m which can be done under the Wizards tight cap situation.

I these two players together could be a winning fixture in D.C. Both add great size to our roster as well as sound clubhouse personalities. Clark fits Wall's public request for a stretch four and Porter adds another reliable, long term Franchise piece.

I like Bennett's upside a lot the guy is a beast, but I know the history and ability of the Wizard's organization to develop and manage 'careless' personalities. Not to pass judgement on Bennett, I don't know him but his game doesn't seem as mature. I know from every scouting report on Porter that his I.Q and personality are franchise caliber. Level heads like Beal, Nene and Oak are the best thing for the team and it's been evident since Young, and Blatche and McGee left.

Webster and Bennett is the other alternative, both with injury worries that could have Ernie second guessing. However if they both get going the scoreboard would be hard to keep up with.

This is just another roster scenario, what are your thoughts/suggestions ?
