If you thought the Wizards would go quietly into the trade deadline, YOU WERE WRONG.
The Suns traded Markieff Morris to the Wizards for a protected 2016 first-round draft pick. It is protected Nos. 1-9.— Paul Coro (@paulcoro) February 18, 2016
After years of very cautious moves, this is a huge roll of the dice. Given the Wizards position, it's probably a necessary gamble to improve their short and long-term future, but this is still a huge risk.
For what it's worth, Marcin Gortat is willing to vouch for Morris:
