RUMOR: Dwight Howard to the Golden State Warriors for Stephen Curry

Is Dwight coming to the Bay?

Fine, fine we've gone over this. Dwight Howard for a one-year rental which causes us to trade our talent is just silly..right?

Well, things are a bit different now. Our best player, Stephen Curry, has suffered the 3rd ankle injury of the season. 7 games into the season...

As the Oakland Tribune reports, Dwight Howard's name has been tossed around (again). Except now, co-owner Joe Lacob is willing to the make the trade without a long-term extension.

Intriguing...

Jump for some quick thoughts.

Ok here's the way I look at it -

  • Stephen Curry is by far one of our best players and part of our "young" core.
  • BUT, Dwight Howard is Dwight Howard and if you have the opportunity to get him here...you gotta do it.
  • ESPECIALLY because Curry's ankle won't be getting better for a loooong time.
  • Add in the possibility of not having our lottery pick (knowing our luck)
  • Add in Dwight has said ON RECORD that he wants to play with Monta Ellis
  • Combine that with Coach Jackson's desire to have a team that actually plays defense
  • And trading for Dwight right now for a one-year rental and POTENTIALLY enticing him to stay longer doesn't sound so silly.
What are your thoughts? Should we get Dwight for a 1 year rental?
