Does Warriors marketing have inside information about Andris?

This is an honest question wondering whether the Warriors marketing/apparel sales apparatus takes Team Management info into account in planning their sales and distributions. The question comes up upon looking at the Warriors Team Store and it makes me wonder about Biedrins' future with the Warriors.

On the linked page, there are new jersey T-shirts available for Ellis, Curry, Lee, D. Wright, B. Wright and Jeremy Lin. There is not one available for Andris. I can certainly understand Ellis, Lee, and Curry driving apparel sales ahead of Andris, and perhaps their wanting to push D. Wright as a major new acquisition (whether accurate or not). I also understand the buzz around J. Lin which they may be intelligently taking advantage of. On the other hand, it is difficult to see why B. Wright (whom I actually like and whom I hope will learn to fly again...) should get higher billing or seem likely to have more of a following than Biedrins (what of our boistrous Latvian fanbase!).

Was this simply an oversight or do they know something we don't about the likelihood of Andris being dealt?

Additionally, I have in the past noted the Jersey Clearance opportunities which occur around when someone gets dealt, and for some reason Andris' Hardwood Classic jersey is the one on sale right now. I also realize that at the moment his is the only one for sale at all, so perhaps his are the only remaining ones? 

In any event, not trying to stir up trouble and I'm hoping that there's some other less nefarious reasons but just thought I'd point it out and see if anyone has more inside info or thoughts re: this. I personally hope Andris stays with us, gets his FT % above the speed limit (ideally of interstate highways, though I'd settle for 55 at this point), and other wise returns to his productive if not wholly spectacular self of old. I'd particularly hate to sell at such a low-point on him and not get good value in return. How much could any team justify giving for him as a (and I always have to look this up again to make sure it's not a typo) 16% free throw shooter last season!

Go Andris (as in to Rick Barry, asap)!!!!!!!!!! Go Warriors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
