They dealt Rivers to get rid of Gortat

If they did now move Ariza it would be getting something (future) for

a)  Gortat, who needed to go
B)  Oubre, who was not coming back

One recent analysis by a Wiz guy said the only other way to use Oubre would have been to tack him onto a Porter or Wall to somewhat sweeten a deal getting a  LT contract out of town.   But a lowly team like PHO would likely be the only team that might extend KO, so the pickin there was slim.

3 guard lineup clicks again for Wiz

Dekker with 11 and 5 in 19 minutes

Ariza 20-12-4

I am sure Randle was again effective despite his 1 point.

Melo finds a home in Chicago. They should play him along side Parker because why not?

The Bulls don't want Melo and Melo doesn't want the Bulls.
Bulls are so bad that Wade swapped jerseys with Benny the Bull, their mascot (true).

Rockettes paid Bulls some $$ to take Melo.

Things got a bit complicated and HOU had to cut Nunnaly to add Faried, because they couldn't get rid of Melo soon enough.  MLK holiday affected things.  First off, Nunnaly might be better than Faried.  Should have had Faried wait a day.  Second, Faried ain't no C.  3rd, why was MLK holiday a week late?  His birthday is Jan 15 ...

HOU got mangled in PHI anyway.
AuRevoir started and submitted a goose egg in 27 mins for a team worst -28.  The non Harden starters were just 5-23 FG.
And PHI was without Butler ...

Weird season. We’re bloody awful, of course. But I like a lot of these players. Fun to watch. Many of them are improving before our eyes. But despite that, one doesn’t see much…chemistry. I’m just talking about two or three guys who seem to play quite well together. Or am I missing something?

I think the kind of chemistry that holds up against cohesive, talented, and experienced defense takes at least a couple of seasons to pull together. We are running a lot with first and second year players and guys who were put together this season. This leads to sequences where two wings scramble to the same corner leaving a guy wide open on the other side or instead of having a sure option A, B, and C in mind when someone comes to set a pick, the ball handler is a little uncertain about what the other guys will do. These kind of glaring uglies will cost us quarters and games as they frequently are already this season. Among the set of guys flailing around on the court in Knicks uniforms this year is a subset of players who can grow into the core of a squad that plays with chemistry in those same jerseys down the line.

I'd agree with this. Fiz had done a commendable job getting players to believe in themselves and to try hard despite difficult circumstances. He hasn't had as much success in building any sort of cohesion. The Hawks, for example, play a lot more cohesively despite not having much more talent or experience than the Knicks.
