How about this crazy idea. The Warriors trade Maggette, Azubuike and or Randolph, to the Bobcats for Richardson. It makes sense because it would make the backcourt less crowded, it would send Maggette to a slower paced team, and we would get J-Rich back. Although the Warriors would possibly be trading rid of Randolph, who is a good young talent, there really isn't going to be a starting spot for him with Jackson locked up at the 3 and Wright the future at the 4. Azubuike is awesome but it would be hard to find p.t. for him. This trade would have to be done at least 3 months into the season because of Maggettes trade restriction. Maybe the Bobcats could add another player to the deal to make it a little more even. This trade would also allow the Bobcats to get rid of Gerald Wallace easier because they would have Azubuike at the 2 and Maggette at the 4.
Bobcats Lineup: PG: Felton/ Augustin, SG: Azubuike, SF: Maggette, PF: May/ maybe Randolph (they could use a power forward and that's what he is. I don't care what they say, he is not a small forward, he doesn't play like one and he might not be quick enough to be one. All he has to do is fill otu a little bit). C: Okafor
Pretty good lineup for the future since they aren't going to win right now anyways.
Warriors Lineup: PG: Ellis, SG: Richardson, SF: Jackson, PF: Wright, C: Biedrins, 6th Man: Crawford
Now that would be more like a true Nelly kind of lineup. Crawford could come off the bench and enable the Warriors to play small ball and have him and Monta at the 1 and the 2, Richardson at the 3, Jackson or Wright at the 4 and Biedrins at the 5. It would be like when Monta came off the bench and was a huge spark plug.
J-Rich would also give us back a go-to guy in the 4th quarter to hit the big shots.
