Former Wizards forward Mike Miller is joining the Miami super-team, agreeing to a 5-year contract worth $30 million. With Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh playing on that team there probably won't be a lot of shots left over for anyone else, which would suit Miller just fine since he repeatedly refused to shoot despite being open and Washington's best shooter by far, last season. Dealing disappointing power forward and #2 overall pick in the 2008 draft Michael Beasley to the Minnesota Timberwolves is what freed up the cap space to make this move.
The Los Angeles Clippers, who should be a much better team in 2010 than many people realize, just signed a former Wizard and a guy the Wizards were looking at in the free agent market this year. Former Wiz combo guard Randy Foye and former Minnesota Timberwolves quick forward Ryan Gomes both inked deals with the Clips, helping to make that team my favorite for most improved in the NBA next season. Foye's deal is for two years and in excess of $8 million.
So just in case you're keeping score, the Wizards traded the 5th overall pick in the 2009 draft for the rights to rent Mike Miller and Randy Foye for one season. Oh, well.
We've got John Wall, Kevin Seraphin, Trevor Booker and Hamady N'diaye now so it's onward bravely into the future.
