My theory is that this is a setup for an 11th hour trade for Dwight Howard:
Warriors receive: Dwight Howard
Magic receive: Bogut and D. Wright
Why do the magic do this: It will be the 11th hour and there are no more options. Dwight is leaving for New Jersey no matter what they do. May as well dupe some other team for a few assets going forward.
Why the Warriors to this: They are itchy to appeal to the fans. Dwight will bring in some money for the season and it won't make the loss of Monta Ellis so bad.
Warriors Line up:
[They will have to call up someone from the D-League]
Warriors would flip Ellis, Udoh, Brown (expiring) and D. Wright into Howard and Jackson [note that Bogut is never really with the Warriors, he is a pawn in this game.
My thoughts on the likelihood of this: 50%. I think that the front office would jump on this opportunity and drink the kool-aid that Dwight might actually consider staying and playing with Curry, Thompson and Lee
Should the Warriors do this? No way. Starting next season we would only have SJAX on the team after selling the farm to get a rental on DH12.
Should the Warrior still pursue Dwight Howard now that we have an asset like Bogut to trade to Orlando?
