The Ship Be Sinking

Yi’s a Goner

I love that the Wizards have become a dumping ground for everyone’s middling-contract, middling-talent mistakes. Look: YI Jianlian was massively, massively miscast as a foundation piece for both the Bucks and the Nets. He has NBA talent, but his best role is as a situational stretch 4, a roleplayer on a good team. In extended minutes his complete lack of basketball IQ was exposed far, far too often, mostly on the defensive end where he was one of the worst players I’ve ever seen at his level of athleticism. He tried, but after two years it was brutally obvious that he was not getting it and probably never would. He gives an honest effort though, and I’ll be happy to see him succeed in a better role for a team which isn’t as pressured to get something out of him to justify the expense of acquiring him.

If there’s any other import to this, it’s that the Nets seem to think there’s still value to creating cap space right now.
