So much for being committed to the Nets huh? After just one season in Brooklyn, Paul Pierce is jumping ship and signed a 2 year/$11 million dollar deal with the Washington Wizards. Things didn’t quite work out as some expected after Pierce and Kevin Garnett joined the team after a trade from the Celtics last year. The way it looks at the moment, next year will be even tougher in Brooklyn for the Nets to really do much. So can you blame Pierce for leaving? Hit the jump.
Another domino has fallen in the free agency game. LeBron James’ decision started a domino effect as teams moved quickly to snatch up who’s left. The Washington Wizards tried desperately to re-sign Trevor Ariza but he has decided to go to the Houston Rockets whom missed out on Chris Bosh.
The Washington Wizards clinched a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference currently holding the sixth seed. It’s very close however between the Chicago Bulls and the Toronto Raptors and there’s a chance the Wizards could face a tough Bulls team in a 3-6 matchup. After suffering a 96-78 loss to the Bulls last night in a game where they only had 26 points at halftime, the Wizards are hoping to get Nene back to give them some extra help.
It’s still very early in the season but the Wizards aren’t playing as well as many had hoped. They were without star John Wall for much of last season and were hopeful with him back and the squad they have now that things would be better. With a 2-6 record after a 92-79 loss to the Spurs, Nene had enough.
You have to be an exceptional player to be an All-Star coming from a losing team. John Wall recognizes that and admits the Wizards need to do better in order for him to make it to the big game. The young guard was given a 5-year, $80 million contract with Washington and is going to have to prove his worth. Read more after the jump.

Jordan Crawford’s time with the Washington Wizards wasn’t exactly good. At first he did great when he was given playing time but soon became the third fiddle when John Wall returned from injury and rookie Bradley Beal was more favored by management. At the February 21st trade deadline this year Crawford was dealt to the Boston Celtics which made him very happy as he seems to have mentally blocked his time with the Wizards from his memory.

Deron Williams hit the court last night and started shooting like he was possessed. He hit a crazy 7 three-pointers in the first quarter alone en route to dropping 33 points in just 15 minutes of play. He broke the record for most threes in a half by hitting 9 and set a new franchise record for the Nets in threes made in a game by hitting 11 total. Williams finished with 42 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists in the Nets 95-78 win over the Wizards. Check it out after the jump.
