A Proven Center & Draft Picks?!

Haven't posted in a while so I wanted to talk about this deal I made with the NBA Trade Machine. Yes, I know how many hate the trade machine but I think this one is reason for all FOUR TEAMS involved.


Warriors Get: Andrew Bogut, Terrence Williams

Why they do this: We get a legit proven center and a young wing that can easily play off of Curry and David Lee. Also have the chance to convince someone for draft picks.

Why they don't do this: They overvalue Monta and are afraid of Bogut's injury prone past.

Magic Get: Monta Ellis, Beno Udrih

Why they do this: They get Dwight a second option that can free him off the ball. They also get another guard in Udrih that can be effective with/without the ball in his hands.

Why they don't do this: They don't want to throw away draft picks to make the deal work in case they go into rebuilding mode starting this off-season.

Bucks Get: Hedo Turkoglu, Samuel Dalembert, Chris Duhon

Why they do this: They trade away an injury prone center and an unhappy guard for role players that can probably give this team a spark for the rest of the season. (Their contracts expire the year after they give Jennings a contract extension if they choose to do that.)

Why they don't do this: They're afraid to let Bogut go as they feel his injuries are a thing of the past and he goes on to help lead the Warriors deep into the playoffs helping them become the best team in California.

Rockets Get: Andris Biedrins

Why they do this: They need a center and a couple of draft picks plus they're willing to supply Andris hair gel before each game.

Why they don't do this: They've seen Biedrins play...


Now draft picks will have to be given to the Rockets and Warriors for this to work. I say Warriors will need one because we are given up the overvalued Monta Ellis for an injury prone big who I believe down the line will have a much stronger and better impact on this team than our combo guard back court. Since Milwaukee is always known for trading draft picks for better or worse I think it's best to get one from them. The Rockets were looking to take on Biedrins this past off-season and maybe Riley can see if that trade is on the table still. If it is then I can see Orlando given a protected pick to them down the line.
