Sources close to the situation say that the Wizards had been trying to engage Charlotte on a Blatche-for-Tyrus Thomas swap. The Wizards would naturally prefer Boris Diaw and his expiring contract -- with the bonus of knowing that Diaw's passing eye could only give the wild Wiz a much-needed boost to their basketball IQ -- but the ever-thrifty Bobcats aren't about to take on the remaining three years (worth nearly $23 million) on Blatche's contract if Thomas' similarly hefty deal isn't headed the other way.

"Now, if we criticize John Wall for not making the right play, he’s not going to backlash and retract and shut down for three plays, because he knows that we care about him. Because we spent that time, and invested it off the court."

Mo Evans, spoke of progress made at a team dinner 10 days into the season.

"He’s maturing," said Lawson of his fellow point guard. "Things are, you can just tell, in disarray, not with the organization, but the players on the court. He’s fighting through it. Eventually he’s going to get some players around him and show exactly how good he is."

The Wizards and Pacers can legitimately save some money by keeping the centers away from the market. But in Washington's case, that means investing in an eccentric player whose mother is openly feuding with the coach. In Indiana's case, that means blowing the rest of its rebuild opportunity just to lock up the team's young center early. It's a dangerous game, and a pair of really tough decisions. Were I in charge here, I'd let my early extension offer for McGee reach $46 million over four years (just a touch more than Jordan got) and $52 million over four years for Hibbert. If either reaches restricted free agency, I'd expect their contracts to exceed those levels, so -- by my guess, which is only a guess -- this would allow these two teams to save a bit of money.

The Wizards, according to sources, have long coveted Green, who played locally at Georgetown and who would provide some desperately needed maturity and young experience next season for one of the league's most callow teams. Assuming the Wizards use their amnesty provision next summer to free themselves from the final season of Rashard Lewis's contract -- $22.69 million -- they'd be in prime position to give Green a big payday, assuming everything checks out post-operation. And if the Nets, say, lose out in the Dwight Howard-Deron Williams sweepstakes, they'll have a lot of flexibility, too.

The money quote from Flip Saunders after the game: "The first half we looked like ‘Space Jam’ where everyone lost all their talents and couldn’t do anything there for a while. But I told them, when you haven’t passed the ball very much, and you’ve been holding the ball and holding it, then all of a sudden, as a team, when you try to start doing it, it’s like guys aren’t ready." Flip has jokes :)

The Wizards, according to NBA front-office sources, are shopping forward Andray Blatche -- again. But Washington is said to be realistic (translation: pessimistic) about its chances of moving Blatche, who began the season with four years and nearly $30 million remaining on his contract.
