Since there have been a whole lot of Iguodala rumors, I thought I would throw out an Iguodala to the Warriors trade idea.
Maybe a trade like this
The Warriors get a dynamic overall player in Iguodala, and Dalembert who can rebound. The Sixers get Maggette to replace Iguodalas scoring, and even though Maggettes contract is fairly large, getting rid of 2 big contracts is worth it. They also get Ronny, Wright (who could eventually start for them at power forward alongside Speights, who can play center), and expirings (maybe even throw in Georges expiring, and if they had to, maybe replace CJ with Morrow).
It's really a pretty solid deal for both teams. The Sixers are able to shed some big contracts, and get some good players in return, while the Warriors get a big piece (Iguodala just turned 26) for the future, and they would only have Dalembert for one more season I believe. Iguodala would be able to take a bunch of pressure off of Monta, and would bring a different dynamic to the team. Iguodala scores in a bunch of different ways (inside, outside, upside down), gets his teammates involved (5.7 assists for a wing), rebounds great for his size (6.9 rebounds), and plays solid defense (1.9 steals and .58 blocks). No way the Warriors would be able to resign Bosh or Amare, and Iggy is already signed for 4 more years after this one. It's better than trading for Butler (approaching 30 and seems to have passed his peak), Howard (same deal as Butler and throw in some character issues), or Gay (might demand more than what Iguodala makes and doesn't do nearly as much). You guys will probably say no way to Dalembert, but having to take on his contract for one or 2 more years is worth getting Iguodala. Maybe the Warriors wouldn't even have to give up that much for Iguodala, but I think that getting him would possibly have a similar impact as when they got Baron. I'm not saying he's as good as Baron was, but he is kind of an unnoticed star a lot of the time, and he would bring another dynamic to this team to get them back in the hunt. Also, Iguodala could put up near LeBron type numbers on the Warriors.
What do you guys think?
