A fun article on Marcin Gortat.
He is a talent - and a great presence on the court and in the locker room. He and Nene have developed great chemistry together.
Trace the lineage of these trades. See the role that injuries play too in the NBA .
Basically - Arenas (no longer in NBA) for Lewis. Lewis (now in Miami) for Ariza and Okafor. Okafor (on IR and traded to Phoenix ) with a conditional pick, for Gortat.
Nene from Denver for McGee (out with a stress fracture).
Nene, Gortat and Ariza all in starting line up for Wizards.
An interesting set of transactions with the Wizards gaining 3 veteran starters. See here.
