Report: Navarro Will Not Play for Wizards
True Hoop, continuing to be all reporter-like, is reporting on the Juan Carlos Navarro situation:
One of Navarro's representatives, Alex Saratsis (he works with Henry Thomas at CSMG), tells me that despite the hope that something would be worked out, there is now no chance Navarro will play in Washington, owing to simple salary cap mathematics.
So, that means the Wizards are fielding offers for Navarro from interested teams like Miami and Memphis.
That process, however, is not going quickly enough for team officials in Barcelona.
Saratsis tells me that this morning, Barcelona officials declared they would only let Navarro out of his contract with a reasonable buyout if a trade is completed by August 3. As in, the end of next week.
All the speculation of late has been about the Heat, with stealth Pat Riley meetings in Spain and all that, but this was today, from the Miami Herald, concerning a possible trade with the Wiz:
Meanwhile, Washington has shown little interest in accepting a Heat draft pick for FC Barcelona combo guard Juan Carlos Navarro.
Assuming "The Washington Post" is Spanish for "The Washington Post," JCN's Web site is actually citing The Washington Post, which is weird, considering The Post's beat writer insists on referring to JCN as JNC, perhaps confusing him with Redskins Beat Writer JLC, who may be a fine blogger but can't run the point in the NBA. I was hoping for at least one JCN-in-DC press conference, so we could discuss Spanish cheese, but you can't have everything.
