with the emergence of Etan Thomas as the team's chief presence off the glass and the consistent play of Christian Laettner when he has played center as the starter, I could see a scenario where Kwame Brown becomes a player that gets moved this season.
extending Brown's contract through 04/05 makes the 21 year old more attractive to teams that may want to take a flier on him.
I don't expect anything to happen until the spring, as Jordan is going to give Brown every chance to show he belongs and is willing to work hard enough to be part of the solution in DC.
However, from the coach's comments so far and the dwindling playing time for Brown the past 4 or 5 games, I see Kwame starting to fall into the same kind of disconnected funk that he was in last year.
The difference is that MJ and Brown nemesis Doug Collins are gone and there is really no reason for Brown NOT to be making the most of his newfound opportunities.
Certainly you see Thomas, Hayes, Jefferies and Dixon showing steady improvement.
In either case the Wizards won't find a long-term fix at center this season, however, without Brown there is enough talent and work ethic here to make this team respectable.
