No permanent GM, no problem for the Washington Wizards.
Rouhier argues during Grunfeld's long tenure the Wizards would make unnecessary moves to incrementally improve. This trade, on the other hand, is one that acknowledges, "We stink, we're not anywhere close."
"Someone else is winning the championship. You're not close, this is what you do," Rouhier says about the Wiz. "You see if Bonga can be somebody for you and if he can't be, who cares? It cost you nothing. You see if Wagner can step in and be somebody for you. If he's not, who cares? It doesn't cost you anything. You have a second round pick, you have future assets. Assets, assets, assets. It's all people should have been doing for years to then be in a position like the Lakers are in."
To be in a position where you can attract a free agent signing and compete to win a title, Rouhier argues.
"This is very anti-Grunfeldian," Rouhier said. "These are the no-brainer type moves that the have-nots should always be making that's how you become a have."
"It's so anti-who-the-Wizards-have-been for so long," he said. "It's great."
