Trade Possiblities

Check out ESPN's Weekend Daily Dime. In the right column, they talk about trades for the Warriors.

The Warriors are still exploring trade possibilities after declining to part with rookie forward Ike Diogu as part of a package for Ron Artest, but they're working from a different deadline than the Feb. 23 trade buzzer.

Golden State has a sizable trade exception ($5.3 million) from last year's Clifford Robinson deal that would allow it to absorb more salary than it gives away, but the exception expires Feb. 14.

The size-craving Warriors remain interested in Milwaukee's Jamaal Magloire after pursuing him hard in New Orleans, but the Bucks -- trying to avoid the slip from playoff contention that has befallen Golden State -- aren't expected to consider offers for Magloire until the offseason.

We should expect to hear something in the next 10 days about a trade between the Warriors and another club. They have to use that trade exemption since it's worth a lot. I'm not sure if they're going to trade for an expiring contract or take on a struggling star. After the Ron Artest deal did not go through, I'm not sure what Mullin is up to. He should have pulled the trigger on that one, especially with Ike getting less than 10 minutes per game. I expect to hear something in the next week or so because this team needs major help. Mullin needs to come through with a big man. (Look for a story on that tomorrow). If the team is going to shoot so many three's he also should go out and get a good shooter or a 3 point marksman.
