Just a little bored and wanted to kick around an idea.
Jason Williams (expiring $9mil)
Sarunas Jasikevicius (expiring $4mil)
Why Haslem is good for the Warriors:
strong post PF and a good all-around defender
athletic and can run the floor
proven above-average rebounder
efficient offense at 50% career fg%, has a decent open midrange jumper
27 years old
Why Jason Williams is good for the Warriors:
huge cap relief next year to resign Monta/Biedrins
can come off the bench for maybe 10min game, show some veteran floor general leadership
can play his natural flashy PG style here and wow the crowd, his creativity was frowned upon under Pat Riley
Why Al Harrington is good for the Heat:
the Heat were ranked 27th in 3pt shooting, they have no deep threat besides Kapono, and Kapono might become a free agent; Harrington shot 42% from 3pt with the Warriors
the Heat just need more offense in general, also 27th in the league in points per game; Al Harrington is a versatile scorer who can score from anywhere
Why Sarunas is a good for the Heat:
I think he'll do better in this type of offense; all he has to do is pass it to Wade and let him create, or pass it in to Shaq, or hit the open jumper created by double teams; Sarunas doesn't have to be a playmaker here like a Warriors PG needs to be
career 36% 3pt shooter
Why the #18 pick is good for the Heat:
- more security that they'll get a good PG in the draft like Acie Law or Crittendon, most mocks have the Heat picking a PG, which might imply they won't be keeping JWill around anyway
What does GSOM think?
