First, let me apologize to Anthony if he reads this. It's gotta feel like he's on a rollercoaster these days. I almost hesitate to post this poll, because you never know how it might turn out...
That being said, I want to get everyone here's opinion. The W's are sliding into suckdom, I think we'll all agree. When this happens, folks tend to panic or demand drastic action. Obviously, we all know that we're missing Monta -- but I think we also probably agree that he's not singlehandedly going to turn things around.
So, let's consider the state of affairs. It feels like the Warriors are on the verge of going into fire-sale mode. Front office chaos, disgruntled players, major losing streak, etc. All the signs are there. This would be the time the vultures smell desparation and start circling...
With that as a background, and with the recognition that we're already 7-20 this season (which makes the playoffs seem pretty darn near out of the question for 2009), I ask you loyal fans:
Would you consider trading Anthony Randolph?
Give your answer within the context above, and without any fantasies that we're going to get someone magic like LeBron or Wade. If we were to trade him, it would almost certainly be in a package deal with one of our vets (Maggette, Crawford, maybe even Jackson at this point). Given our fire-sale mode, we'd most likely get someone of roughly equivalent value -- so for example Maggs and Randolph for Gerald Wallace.
It might happen, so now's the time to speak up. Should we entertain offers? Should he be untouchable?
