Rumor: Nellie Wants Another Trade + Mickael Pietrus on the Trading Block

From Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News:

Though the Warriors already pulled off the biggest trade of the season -- Mike Dunleavy, Jr., Ike Diogu, Troy Murphy and Keith McLeod to the Pacers for Al Harrington, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Stephen Jackson and Josh Powell -- Don Nelson is said to be itching for one more pre-deadline deal. Expect Mickael Pietrus to be dangled but only if GM Chris Mullin can get value in return. Pietrus intrigues a lot of teams, but when Jason Richardson is fully healthy, there won't be a lot of playing time for him.

The Warriors are at a curious point. They are currently a very unimpressive 5 games below the .500 mark, however they are only 1.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the West. One bold move at the trade deadline could push them over the top and help then end that ridiculous 12 year streak. On the other hand, if the Warriors entered into tank mode they could potential score themselves a real stud in this upcoming draft to fill in one of their gaping holes for years to come.

Should the Warriors be looking to make a move at the deadline this year to make a run at the playoffs or just go into tank mode for a balla in the 2k7 NBA Draft?
