Rumor: Warriors Interested in Morris Peterson

Not sure why he's got toilet paper on him

The Warriors are trying to make some big moves this year in free agency. In addition to pursuing Gerald Wallace and Mikki Moore, they're going after Morris Peterson.

The Utah Jazz, Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Hornets, Miami Heat and Sacramento Kings have all expressed interest in Peterson.
But there's a problem in the Warriors going after Mo Pete, he wants to start. I wouldn't say that he can't start on this team, but he certainly isn't guaranteed a starting spot on the Warriors. He'll have to beat out Monta Ellis which he could potentially do if he can return to his'05-'06 form.
Playing time also is important to Peterson, said the source. Peterson wants to become a starter or get significant playing time. He lost his starting spot this past season.

I'd stay away from Mo Pete if he wants to start. If he's okay with being the 6th man, then I'd sign him, but only if Matt Barnes prices himself out of the Warriors' range. He could fill a valuable role as a shooter off the bench, but I have a feeling he peaked 2 seasons ago.

Should the Warriors sign Mo Pete to the MLE? Would you take him over Barnes?
