Jeff Green and Bass to the Wizards for Nene and Martell Webster.

Webster's having a good year, but is not as impactful as Green if you consider
defense...Nene greater than Bass when healthy.

The trade would help the Wizards build for the future:
Wall, Beal, Green, Seraphin, Okafor

is a nice lineup for the time being.  Green is a smart player with good defense who likes to pass, and there's plenty of offensive players to pass to in that lineup.  And they'll surely add quality thru the draft.

I would certainly call this trade a gamble due to Nene's health history
combined with his salary.  But let's say he's healthy.  It's a good win now trade, isn't it?

I'd hesitate on this one due to Nene's injury history but I'd be very tempted.
I think Washington would be wise to do it.

Yeah, at this point, Nene isn't enough of a sure thing to be worth taking on that contract.  In trading Green we'd go from one bad contract to an even bigger, worse one.

Nene's health and Webster's usually invisible game would make me turn this down.  Green's coming around.  I'd want something better than this for Green and Bass
