This is probably for the best. He will definitely get a better shot in New Orleans than he was going to get in DC.

A couple of thoughts. I think this shows the Wizards have confidence in Rip's groin and/or they are excited about someone they think will be there at 17. Of course they could package their two picks for something entirely different as well.

Good luck to CA. He deserves it.

There are now several options for the Wizards. That is a good thing because the 11th spot is generally a reactionary spot, meaning you are picking based on a hell of a lot of action 1 through 10.

If Wagner falls to 11 they can grab him and use the 17th on a SF. If they grab a SF at 11 then they can look for a PG at 17. I think this is what they have planned for but made the move now so that they could be in a position to do something with those picks on Draft day, a luxury they wouldn't have with them trying to make the deal with the Hornets tomorrow.

That would at least explain the timing of not waiting until the draft.
