I was browsing insidehoops.com, like I do just about everyday and I came across an article pertaining to Leon Powe and Glen "Big Baby" Davis. It was talking about how they were super physical against eachother in practice. It also said that Powe has a non-guranteed contract for this year. It also said how they may or may not be enough room on the roster for both, depending on if the Celtics get another big man. This is what got me thinking, I think Powe would be an excellent fit in the Warriors system. I was really hoping that last year we could have stole him in the 2nd round. He's exactly what we need on our team, he's 6'8, 240 lbs and can be extremely physical. He could provide that toughness off the bench and the ability to grab boards that we so sorely lack.
Now, the Warriors have two project big men in POB and Perovic. POB is probably the more attractive piece to the Celtics because after all he was a lottery pick last year and some people think he does have some upside. However, in the system we run POB could be deemed useless. He may or may not turn out to be a decent center one day but I don't think it'll be with our team. The Celtics on the other hand might have some use for him. This is where I bring up the scenario where we send POB to the Celtics for Leon Powe. It seems like a reasonable trade that both sides would be willing to do.
I assume Powe makes less than a mil a year since he has a non guranteed contract and POB makes around 2 mil a year so I don't think absorbing the salaries wouldn't be that much of a problem for either team. This is just random thinking of players who I think have a good shot at being useful to us and another way to shed ourselves of POB who will most likely never make a solid contribution to the Dubs.
What do you guys think?
