It looks like Gilbert will really go to Disney World but we dunno if we will get Vinsane, or get Gortat, or get Rashard... I would like to get JJ Redick in the deal somehow if Vinsanity isn't it.




*UPDATE*

Now apparently it's done but it's the only site that said something:

http://www.hoopsvibe.com/features/articles/112472-report-gilbert-arenas-traded-to-the-wizards

The title is a typo but apparently we will get blown out by 70 instead of 50 to the Miami Heat later today...




Another site still believes that the Wizards aren't interested, but I think the trade is done.....

hopefully this isn't another crying wolf remark... do it or let gilbert finish his $80 million here. John Wall isn't even playing for the Wizards anymore as of late!


WHAT A WEEK IN DC SPORTS! THE REDSKINS OVERSHADOWED EVERYTHING!

Arenas for Carter and Gortat is terrible for Orlando...they need to get something else back

But if you're Washington, go for it. You've got Wall, and Hinrich and can plug Vince in at SG for the rest of the year, as well as Gortat at backup C. Plus the possibility of a 1st round pick? O.o

WTF Magic.

A Nelson/Arenas backcourt?

They're already failing miserably on defense this season aside from Dwight. Carter is nothing special, but at least he can put a body on someone.

This is why you don't fuck up the chemistry on title-contending teams...

I'm seeing on twitter that Rashard would be coming here, sb nation's magic site claims that we may be taking Lewis and Vince, which I don't see because Ted wants to go young. Maybe one of the players will get bought out.

I think arenas has been better at defense than in years past. He is making the effort to stay on top of the ball hhandler.

Kind of hard to see if this is another wolf call about Arenas or if it's done, because it's late at night, and the teams haven't said anything yet.

Visa, though this rumor has come up cold several times, but I think we can all agree that Gil's days in DC are numbered. The reasons for him to turn his keycard in outweigh the reasons for him to stay.

Reasons to stay
1. He is still one of the NBA's best shooters, still able to drive to the hoop, and he still has great court vision. Debunked many of the "injury prone" issues now for the 2nd straight season.
2. Ted Leonsis at least still likes him, and the players on the outside still like him as a teammate and a leader (well they don't have many others) in the locker room.

Reasons for Gilbert to go besides Gungate
1. John Wall is the undisputed starting point guard. He is the franchise player, even though he picked up Gilbert's previous habit of not playing due to nagging pains, though in Gilbert's case, he was really hurt, and for John, he can't play once he cuts his face while shaving (note sarcasm). With Gilbert losing his franchise player status the way he did, it's not a fun situation.
2. The Wizards got Kirk Hinrich to be Wall's mentor. Otherwise Gilbert would be that guy. This crowds the point and shooting guard minutes up more and is more of a sign that Gil's gone sooner rather than later.
3. Ernie Grunfeld in public says, Gil's my guy and he was seen with him this past summer, but I think he will ship him out of town if there's a viable opportunity when we can get some young player or asset back. I don't think he likes him that much either after Gun Gate.
4. Gilbert knows he is "For Sale". Ernie knows that he can only get rid of Gilbert through a Short Sale. We're not gonna get Kobe back, we're not getting LeBron James. We're going to get another team's disgruntled player, but hopefully he has no character issues.
5. If Gilbert gets his next injury in a Washington Wizards uniform, we will NEVER be able to trade him, though perhaps we could terminate him after a new CBA is reached.
6. Reason 1 to keep Gilbert is another reason for him to leave.
7. Reason 2 may not be 100% accurate. Ted is going to say the right things, but he can definitely tell you in private that Alex Ovechkin is a MUCH BETTER franchise player than Gilbert.
8. Do you see Gilbert Arenas at length in Wizards promo videos? I see him here and there but really no. Is he in the timeout segment videos for "this or that?" or dancing when we have a burrito dash, kiss for the camera, or dance around? Nope. We see John Wall, we see Kirk, even Josh Howard who probably won't be on this team in 2012-13. But no Gilbert. The only promo that has Gilbert's picture is for the All Star votes and it looks clear that the only rep for our team in All Star Weekend will be John Wall for the rookie challenge, assuming his ouchie boo boo won't prevent him from doing so.

***

Last thing I've seen: the trade rumor is real, there are
negotiations, but it may not be imminent, and Gilbert should be playing
tonight against Miami.

Then again, Antawn was at shoot around
and was suited up for the Minny game only to be told minutes before the
game to turn his keycard in and was escorted out of the building.

Well Orlando wants Melo or Chris Paul more than Gilbert according to this article:

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/os-schmitz-magic-trade-carmelo-anthon20101218,0,493416.column

But unless the Magic want to give up Dwight Howard to the Hornets or some combo of decent players to Denver who are also built to "win now", well, I think the Gilbert to Orlando deal is the one that will happen among these three. Besides, the Magic have to assume that Melo would want to play alongside Dwight Howard, and the NBA rumors believe that he will only sign an extension if he knew he'd play for the Knicks. I don't think he'd play for more than half a season in Orlando if he were sent there unless they win the NBA Finals.

Orlando may make a couple deals. this Gilbert deal could land us Rashard


Otis Smith now has said that he has been pretty aggressive for Gil but nothing's imminent. I'm pissed because I want another draft pick and possibly a good leader in Rashard who isn't garbage; he just got overpaid to come to Orlando.
