Wizards will let Jeffries go

The Washington Wizards will not match the New York Knicks five-year, $30 million offer sheet extended to restricted free agent forward Jared Jeffries last week, a league source told SI.com. Jeffries will become property of the Knicks on Monday.

The 6-foot-11 Jeffries averaged 6.1 points per game in 77 games (all starts) with Washington and was considered one of the top remaining free agents on the market.

Last week Knicks president Isiah Thomas -- who shares the same Indiana alma mater as Jeffries -- signed Jeffries to a frontloaded contract that included a lump payment of $6 million when he signs as well as a trade kicker.

The writing appeared to be on the wall for Jeffries when the Wizards agreed to terms earlier Saturday on a one-year deal (plus a second with a player option) with free agent forward DeShawn Stevenson, a less expensive alternative who averaged 11.2 points and 2.9 rebounds in 82 starts with Orlando last season

Is it just me or are the players Isiah is overpaying for getting worse? Now he's giving Jeffries 30 million? He's giving up. He knows he ****ed the Knicks over bad, so he figures why not add some more **** onto the next dude to step in's plate.

Nobody could be worse than Jerome James.

Jeffries is only getting about twice what he's worth - by Isiah's standards, he's a bargain.

At least Isiah now has a backup in case Jalen, Q, Fyre, Lee, Rose, Taylor and Crawford all go down with injuries. Where does this but Renaldo Balkman on the depth chart? 18th? Will he make it through camp?

Actually, looking at the numbers, it looks like DC replaced Jeffries (and then some) for much cheaper than Jeffries is going to cost. However, it's a lot easier to put up those numbers in Orlando than Washington.

Stevenson won;t start in the beginning of the year. Haes and Butler will but Hayes will get injured again like always. He's our Tins. And then Butler will play the 3 and Stevenson will be the 2 guard. Wait...what am I saying?? JEFFRIES ISN'T GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Wiz fan friend will be ecstatic that JJ is gone.

Of course, he also thinks acquiring DeShawn and Songalia (hey, both players have the initials DS! -- my useless fact of the day) makes them title contenders. :lmao:

Our loss is your gain - or something like that.

I think it's funny that now that Larry Brown's been canned we start getting Larry Brown - type players.

DisplacedKnick.....how many players does Zeke have on the roster now?

Have they exceeded the # of players for the roster yet?

It seems like they have about a million guaranteed contracts .

Knicks Roster:

Starbury
Franchise
Jalen
Curry
Frye
Crawford
Q
David Lee
Nate Robinson
Malik Rose
Jerome James
Mo Taylor
Renaldo Balkman
Mardy Collins
(Jared Jeffries)

And according to Hoopshype, they are still paying Allan Houston, Jerome "JYD" Williams and Shandon Anderson nearly $36 million combined.


Jared Jeffries would make 15 on the current roster.

I believe if you add the contracts of players and coaches (LB & Wilkens) who the Knicks are paying to NOT play or coach, that exceeds the NBA salary cap.

We need MORE!

Nothing would please me more than if Isiah bankrupted James Dolan to the point where he had to get lunch by picking through Central Park trash recepticles.

Shoot, I'm sad about them being at 15, I was hoping they would trade future picks for Baron Davis, he's the last piece to the puzzle. ;)

I've read about 5 articles now that say we aren't signing him. I guess it just dawned on me. My favorite Wiz is gone. I guess Blatche steps up and takes his place now.

Not Zeke exactly, but close and it wouldn't surprise me if they get some new material one of these days.
