Okafur and Washington's 2014 1st rounder (top three protected) for Al Jefferson and a couple 2nds. Why Washington does it? They're 0-12. Their offense is abyssmal. It frees them of Okafur's contract which has one more year on it after this year. They get Al's Bird Rights. It gives their fans some hope which is completely void right now. Seriously a Wall-Beal-Vesely-Jefferson-Nene starting five sounds solid on paper. Why we do it? The 1st rounder most of all. This could land us the stud we need. It also frees us of Jefferson's awful defense and frees up time for our young bigs to play more. Okafur, who currently plays just 22.5 minutes a game, nets us about 10 more minutes for Kanter/Favors to play. We'd have to suck up his contract for next year as well but that 2014 1st rounder should be a very high pick, we open up time for Favors and Kanter, and Okafur's 2013 contract shouldn't really hurt us in re-signing our young guys.
