Warriors in play for MKG?

INSIDER REPORT We wrote yesterday about the likelihood that coveted small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could slip to No. 5 on draft day, made more possible by the Wizards-Hornets trade. That got us thinking -- if MKG is there for Sacramento at No. 5, might the Warriors feel inclined to do whatever they can to move up two spots and take him? To pull off the trade, Golden State would probably have to get creative. Sacramento likely wouldn't be interested in the Warriors No. 30 pick, for example, since it amounts to giving a guaranteed contract to the last player taken in the first round. Just speculating here, but since the hard-nosed, defensive-minded Kidd-Gilchrist would make such a perfect addition to the Warriors lineup, we wonder if dangling a first round pick in 2013 might be enough to convince the Kings to move down two picks. Sacramento is very impressed with Weber State point guard Damian Lillard, and rumor has it he could be their pick if they stay at No. 5. But with Portland drafting No. 6, there's a decent chance he could go to the Trail Blazers if the Kings do elect to swap picks with Golden State. Even if that happens, though, someone like UConn's promising center Andre Drummond is likely to be there as another option. This is all pure speculation, but it's something that could make a lot of sense for both teams. - Joe Kaiser
