Even though I've been lobbying for the W's to trade Ellis for defense for a long time, it still stings to see a true professional, someone whom we've raised through out organization, leave.
I'm most upset that they couldn't find a way to unleash Biedrins' contract or get a draft pick back somehow, keep Udoh, but ESPECIALLY that they took Stephen Jackson back.
I know it's new ownership, but dang....do they understand how much fans hate that guy and how he ran himself out of GS just a few years ago? Not cool!!
Not happy about this man hucking one more 3, driving the lane and throwing his hands up in the air or complaining to the referee's. We rewarded him with a huge contract and he turned around and screwed us over by demanding a trade. Please just release him.
So I'm curious about peoples thoughts. What grade would you give the Warriors?
Do you think there are any further moves coming down the line? Can we trade Biedrins and Wright for Diaw and filler? Lee for Favors and Harris? I dunno, it looks like we've decided we won't make the playoffs this year which I agree with (seeing our upcoming schedule)
All in all, I'm actually a bit excited about this trade. At leas they got a pretty serious player in return and at least they have a direction! Something we haven't had for a long time.
What grade do you give?
