Haywood traded to Jordan's Wizards

Michael Jordan traded for a fellow Tar Heel on Wednesday, acquiring rookie Brendan Haywood.

Tar Heel Brendan Haywood was traded to the Washington Wizards on Wednesday in exchange for former Maryland star Laron Profit and a future first-round pick.

"We are excited to bulk up our frontline," Wizards president Michael Jordan said. "Brendan brings height and shot blocking ability to the Wizards. His defensive presence will also be felt when he is on the floor."

Haywood is UNC's all-time leading shotblocker and the ACC's all-time leader in field goal percentage. He averaged 12.3 points and 7.3 rebounds last season at Carolina.
