2012-13 Golden State Warriors Thread.

I saw a rumor that we're willing to trade Bogut and Klay/Barnes for Dwight, and I came here to say exactly what John said. I'd be willing to give up Klay, Bogut and Beans, but I'd tell the Lakers to piss off if they tried to get Barnes instead. The Lakers should be ecstatic to get a potential top-3 center when healthy and a young potential star in the league, not to mention 2/3 contracts are expiring and one is still on his rookie contract.

Bogut and 2 future 1sts is as much of a "gamble" as betting that the sun rises tomorrow. You'd be giving up virtually nothing for the best center in the league, and someone who fits the rest of your roster like a glove. No way the Lakers would do it without Klay or Barnes being involved, and I think the Dubs would be absolutely insane to say no that.

But couldn't Dwight just leave out right? 2 firsts is better than nothing

Curry
Rush
Barnes
Lee
Howard

The Warriors would still need to get a backup big man ( Lopez) and maybe bring back Jack if the deal was reasonable and not over the top. DO that and CHAMPIONSHIP.

Replace Klay with Barnes and you have yourself a deal. I'll call Mitch right now.

Klay and you will like it! Seriously, the way Barnes stepped up in the playoffs would make it tough to deal him.

He has an entirely different skill set that seems to fit what the team needs.

Klay is a great shooter but we already have a better one in Steph, two is a luxury and if it came down to it I agree I would like to keep Barnes. SG aren't impossible to replace.

Best center in the league for a promising shooting guard. I'd take that trade 10/10 times.

Any warrior fan that doesn't want him is an idiot

Nobody in this thread wants him besides Jeff and i

this. like i said, i'm no fan of the "Dwightmare" persona. however, it doesn't blind me with the fact that he would fit real well with our team.

And it wouldn't just be a rental. That was my only worry last season before he got traded to the Lakers
Letting Dwight walk for nothing saves the Lakers $50M. That's a lot better than Bogut (whose contract means that the Lakers would save about $15M instead of $50) + two late 1st Round picks. If Barnes or Klay aren't in the deal, the Lakers don't make the trade and they just let him walk.

BTW, most of you guys are nuts. This is a huge opportunity for the Dubs, and neither Harrison Barnes nor Klay Thompson should get in the way of that.
Still think Howard ends up in Houston though.
I just think he's a disaster and won't ever live up to the money he's going to end up getting. But probably worth the risk if it's for Bogut, Klay an expiring and a first.
Howard needs shooters around him, keep Klay and deal Barnes.

In the end I believe the Warriors would trade Barnes along with Bogut and Biedrins (or Jefferson) for a chance to get Howard. Bigger risk than moving Klay but I get the feeling that they would pull the trigger on it.

Agreed.

FWIW, this hypothetical trade makes you a WCF contender this year, and you'd walk into next offseason with..

PG: Stephen Curry, Nemanja Nedovic
SG: Klay Thompson
SF: Draymond Green
PF: David Lee
C: Dwight Howard, Festus Ezeli

about $6M in cap space, plus the full $5M mid-level exception. With two, solid $5M-$6M pickups, that's a title contender in '14-15, IMO.
