What I would do if I were running the Warriors.


First keep Don Nelson one more year as head coach. If Larry Ellision ends up buying the Warriors it will be late in the summer many of the best coaches will be gone. How about if I were Larry throw as many million as it took to hire Tom Thibodeau as a one year assistant coach on the Defensive side of the ball with the expectation that he will take over the head coaching job the following season. It would be the best situation for his Tom too, little to no expectations and a guaranteed head coaching job and more money then most head coaches. The Warriors would have two of the best offensive and defensive minds in the game for one season and im sure Tom could learn some of Nelsons tricks.

Next, don’t trade for Al Jefferson as many people on this blog have suggested trade for Kevin Love if possible. Great outlet passer will start the break up all day, Ave 14 and 11 with almost 4 offensive boards a game. Some toughness and beef and will cost us less the Al “No D” Jefferson.

I would really like Iggy if we can still get a big man like Love, but Love will most likely cost the 6th and I don’t know if we could get both because it seems philly on other blogs has been asking a very high price for Iggy or Turner. If we could pull one and still get the NECESSARY improvement at the 4 or 5 then I am all for it.

If not go after guys like Battier and Hayes on the rockets. I would even trade Monte for those two and the 14th pick but that doesn’t make sense for the rockets having Martin and Brooks. But we do have the assets to pull off a trade for those two. I also would inquire about Scola and make Wright and even for the right deal Randoph available for some combo of those three players. Another option, look into trading Ellis to Memphis and getting back Marc Gasol in a trade in some form.

With my second round pick I would draft one of four players Jordan Crawford, Greivis Vasquez or Stevenson/James if either of them falls out of the first round. Look into trading up for George or Henry IMO both will be studs.

Resign AMO, Williams and Hunter.

Stay in Oakland and rebuild a newer super stadium next to Oracle The Cowboy stadium of basketball. (Larry you got the $$$'s time to flaunt it.)

New uniforms that look like the City ones that everyone likes.

Make offers for the fallowing free agents: Raja Bell and possibly Marcus Camby or Udonis Haslem.
