Hey Warrior fans,
You have heard all of the offers pitched. The Warriors management is obviously looking for a power forward, but I don't know that you are going to find one much better than David West and you are going to have a hard time convincing guys like amare or Chris Bosh to sign extensions.
Anyways, I have always thought that Andrei Kirilenko just belonged on the Golden State Warriors and I have thought that there was a trade to be made between the Jazz and Golden State. In fact, I think AK47 for Anthony Randolph is a funny trade, because I see AK as a more mature version of Anthony Randolph; a veteran if you will.
It obviously adds about $3 million to your payroll this year and $6-10 million next year, but it also takes $21 million of Corey Maggette's contract off the books in 2011-2013. I don't know if the Jazz management is willing to make a big trade right now, but I think this would benefit both teams. AK has only one year left after this one, so his contract isn't as bad any longer and I really think he would thrive in your system if he was turned loose again. He's only 28 years old.
Let me know what you think.
