The trade deadline is tomorrow, and the Wizards still seem to be fielding calls on potential Etan Thomas trades, but it doesn't look like anything is going to get done.
Marty Burns of Sports Illustrated has a last-ditch possibility involving the Portland Trailblazers.
Hell, that deal would be incredible, but I really can't see it happening.
More likely, as Ivan Carter says, Thomas and everyone else are going to be here for the rest of the year.
Despite several injuries, including forward Antawn Jamison's sprained left knee, the Wizards (30-21) are in good position to earn the top seed going into the Eastern Conference playoffs and have a shot at posting the franchise's first 50-win season since 1978-79.
Many people, including ESPN's Greg Anthony and the Washington Post's Tom Boswell, say that the two feuding centers (Thomas and Brendan Haywood) are ultimately going to drag the Wizards down. Of course, they've been feuding for the last two years, and the team has still been relatively successful, but they definitely hate each other more than ever, considering they're, as Thomas says, "talking through different channels."
Ideally, I think Ernie would trade Thomas, but his huge contract (yes, the one Ernie signed Thomas to in 2004) makes it difficult. Ernie and Eddie Jordan are spinning the whole thing to say they love their roster, but deep down, Ernie probably wants to do more to make this roster better. Just my two cents.
Bottom line is, don't expect anything by tomorrow.
