Well, the latest Wizards-related trade rumor has Washington interested in re-aquiring Jared Jeffries from the New York Knicks. According to ESPN’s Chad Ford, the deal would be Etan Thomas and Mike James for Jeffries and Malik Rose.
After this season, Jeffries has another $13.4 million over the next two years, but Rose, who is making $7.6 million this year, comes off the books in the summer, so this deal would help the Wizards, who are projected to be over the luxury tax. And as far as the Knicks go, Thomas and James come off the books the summer of 2010, which is what New York is all about.
I’ve got some feelers out, but haven’t heard a yay, or nay, yet. Stay tuned . ..
