Something like Jones + Elliott + 2nd?


Make no mistake Jones's value is obvious but I start with him as a replacement on wing. If he does not work you sign another guy in free agency. Elliott + 2nd is the meat of the proposal because if Elliott works out you could trade Green and has been talked about or trade Elliott himself. 2nd is a 2nd rounder.. Honestly I don't know that you would get a more sense/value package.

Obvious risk for us would be that he walks.. Risk for you is that he walks and you get nothing. Our center depth and cap space also makes us a favorite for signing him as a UFA. Some would argue just wait.. But obviously we need help now not a year from now in my and some (but not all) fans opinions.

Just wait for you could be just as potentially dangerous..
I think you can answer your own question. Let me put it this way: how does a trade like Jones + Elliott + 2nd for Semin make Washington better?
