I have to admit I had fun during the #KD2DC movement. I took it as fun as others took it as something serious. Compared to other teams who had the cap space why would he come here to a team that has a GM like Ernie Grunfeld? You think KD wanted to kick the ball out to Marcus Thorton and Ramon Sessions?
After Plan B failed (Al Horford) Ernie Grunfeld went big heavy for some strange reason. Already with players like Marcin Gortat and Markieff Morris he had an epiphany. Ernie decided completely to go the opposite way of today's NBA. He decided to get even more big and slower signing 3 more cement footed paint congesting bigs when John Wall was begging (and still is) for some athleticism. You know Ernie likes to do the opposite of common sense. Remember when John Wall needed shooting and Ernie drafted Jan Vesely? Anyways here is the new addition to the list.
- In a failed effort to sign Kevin Durant in 2016, (when everyone knew KD was not coming to Washington except for Ernie) Ernie signed these 3 players which yet again set the Wizards back for years to come
- Signed Ian Mahinmi for 4 years, $64 million. A career average of 5.1 points and 4.3 rebounds. One of the worst contracts in the league right now next to....
- Signed Andrew Nicholas for 4 years, 26 million. A career 6 points and 3 rebounds.
- Signed Jason Smith for 3 years $16 million.
A combined $106 million dollars....
