Interactive Poll - Where Will Jonny Flynn By Drafted?

I Love Terrence Williams (and no, there's no "as a basketball player" qualifier)

This doesn't change my opinion of him as a player--that if the Bulls do nothing and Henderson, Blair and Hansbrough are off the board, I wouldn't be upset about taking Williams--but I love the personality, honesty, insight... I hope he ends up being really, really good.

"There's no way we could have gotten someone in the draft that compares to the production and experience level of these two players," team president Ernie Grunfeld said. The Wizards dealt three forwards -- Etan Thomas, Darius Songaila and Oleksiy Pecherov -- and gained two guards, leaving a roster imbalance that could lead to more wheeling and dealing. "We might get out of (the draft) altogether," Grunfeld said. "Very seldom do you get a 32nd pick who's going to come right in and help a veteran ballclub."

You thought that draft night became boring when Ernie traded his first rounder? Just wait until he unloads that 2nd rounder too.

The Wizards have gotten at least 10 offers for the pick, but every team I spoke with that's in the draft was still in the dark about where they stood. The Knicks have offered Larry Hughes for Thomas and James. The Wolves have reportedly offered Mike Miller. The Celtics would give them Ray Allen. The Rockets would give them Tracy McGrady and Carl Landry. The Bucks would send them Richard Jefferson. The Nets would entertain unloading Vince Carter. The Suns could do something with Shaq. The Blazers could part ways with Steve Blake, Jerryd Bayless or Travis Outlaw. The question is: Are any of those offers good enough for the No. 5 pick? In most year's, no. But this year, with the Wizards thinking they're poised to make a deep playoff run? It might be enough.

Chad Ford's latest buzz update. It has all you need to know about the Wizards and the fifth pick.

With point guard Ricky Rubio possibly slipping out of the top four, the Blazers are talking to the Wizards about acquiring the No. 5 pick. Pritchard has been on the hunt for a point guard, and Rubio would be a nice fit to round out the Blazers' collection of young, unselfish talents. But trading for the No. 5 pick is far from a done deal, as the price would be high for the Blazers. The Wizards want any team interested in the No. 5 pick to take Etan Thomas off their hands -- a move that could eat into the Blazers' cap space this summer. The deal almost certainly would cost the Blazers some young talent, like Bayless, Travis Outlaw or Batum.

Chad Ford. If Portland wants to move up to get Rubio, I'd probably insist that they give Rudy Fernandez back as part of their package. No need to take back any less when we could keep Rubio ourselves.
