The case for the Warriors trading for Luis Scola or Marc Gasol




The Warriors could have a plethora of quality of big men available to them via trade.

What does everybody think of our beloved Warriors trading for Luis Scola or Marc Gasol? Both are fantastic players playing for frustrated teams. If current rumored reports out there are true, the Houston Rockets are in panic mode hoping to trade Yao Ming and the Timberwolves are trying to steal both OJ Mayo and Zach Randolph from the Memphis Grizzlies. This leaves both big men Luis Scola and Marc Gasol interesting and very good choices for the Warriors.

LUIS SCOLA - HOUSTON ROCKETS

Luis Scola is a good player with great percetages in FG (52% career) and FT (73%) for a center. He's having a career year of 20ppg and 8rbs but could be great targets if the Warriors give up some expiring contracts to help Houston quicken the rebuiling process. This would be ideal because of his polished skill-set down low. He might be 6'9, but 250 pounds is enough beef down there. Ekpe Udoh can take care of the length problem potentially down the road.

MARC GASOL - MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES


Marc Gasol is more realistic option, since he would be the odd man out of the Grizzlies, who could suddenly turn to a team with lots of cap space. He has similar numbers to Scola (55% FG career) and (71% FT) with good defensive reach. A one-two punch with him, a healthy Biedrins, Udoh and Amundson would be a formidable blocking bunch.Just think of Marc Gasol against his brother in numerous matchups for the years to come. Hmmm..

Would this be enough to make the Warriors a playoff team? A championship team?

It's one option I hope our new owners can be involved in.
