And you thought the Wizards D was porous

According to the Washington Times, Brendan Haywood has requested a trade.

Washington Wizards center Brendan Haywood has told president of basketball operations Ernie Grunfeld he wants to be traded this summer, according to two team sources and a league source with knowledge of the situation.

Haywood, 27 , told Grunfeld during exit interviews last week following the team's elimination from the playoffs that his relationship with coach Eddie Jordan had deteriorated beyond repair, the three sources said.

"He pretty much said that the relationship between himself and Eddie had gotten to the point where he didn't want to be in Washington anymore because he doesn't feel that he'll be treated fairly," the league source said.

Attempts to reach both Jordan and Haywood last night were unsuccessful.
