    It seems we could use interior defense (Bogut), and possibly a sixth man slasher, get to the line, plays good d type. (Rush)
    Both of those guys are out.. so.

    Just taking a look at our roster, strengths and weaknesses... and considering realistic FA options,

    who would you trade for right now?

    barring realistic options, who do you think would be the best fit for this squad?

    Good question. Can't say at the moment.

    But in terms of outgoing players, I can only imagine Jefferson, Tyler, Biedrins, & Bazemore as the only trade pieces. And future draft picks. So it'd be tough.

    another 3 , but one who slashes and gets to the rim. The cats are shopping Henderson. he'd be nice off the bench.

    a shot blocking C (or big pf) who also rebounds a little

    in a perfect world, gimme Lebron. In a slightly more realistic one, Varejao thanks

    In that case, why not Diop and Henderson from the Bobcats. They can't be asking for much for those two and that's good because there isn't much that we are willing to give up.

    At this point I would consider Curry and Barnes pretty much untouchable, with Thompson and Lee only available in a deal that nets us a star player. Bogut's trade value is very low so no point in moving him. Basically our best readily available assets are Jack and Landry, but at this point they seem to valuable to move so I would hold on to them. That leaves our tradable assets down to a minimum with the likes of Beans and Jefferson, who are both more valuable NEXT year when they are expiring contracts worth like 20 million.

    Basically what I am saying is that I would stand pat at this point.

    Henderson and Bismack!!


    #boner


    I'm in the same boat though - would only trade if we got someone for cheap

    Beans and Jeffersons expiring contracts are going to be nice assets next season...

    As of right now... I wouldnt touch this team... Wouldnt want to mess with the chemistry... Unless theres a Bismack and Henderson for Beans... OR Nene and Ariza for Beans and Jefferson trade... You know, a trade in which we just abuse the other franchise/team...

    This. If it works, don't touch it.

    If anything, bring back Dom as a defensive specialist from the bench, but that's it.

    I fully expect some sort of minor deal before the deadline as the Warriors are slightly above the luxury tax line... don't think it is much about the money but rather the restrictions that come with being over the threshold. But yeah, I agree with KC... wouldn't want to mess with things unless we rape somebody and just can't pass on the deal.

    The chances of us getting the best of another team in a deal increase with each win..
    More players willing to come here

    Once we get Bogut back, Bargnani as 4 when Lee is resting...the spacing would be beautiful. As a complementary player getting 10-25 minutes? I'll take Bargnani over Biedrins any day.

    My thoughts exactly. If anything I would tweak the rotation a little bit. Have Barnes come off the bench and start Draymond for a couple games. Or utilize RJ a little more often to have Barnes fresh since he's been in a slump. I'd also utilize Biedrins and Ezeli a lot more. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, biedrins has been good off the bench this season. He will never live up to his contract, but put that aside and look at how he's been playing. Rebounding and defending the paint. We'd be better off getting used to conventional lineups now so that its not much of a transition when bogut comes back. I hope to God that when bogut comes back we dont see that lee/landry 4/5 lineup cuz that motherf*cker gets eaten up alive inside.

    good points! Credit to Mark Jackson for bringing Biedrins along... gave him a simple job at the beginning of the season: just rebound the basketball!!
    He did that for a while, blocked some shots, loosened up, then scored a few buckets and seems at the very least, serviceable at this point. Which is a far cry from what he's been in the last few years. If he can get back to 6-8pts, and 8-10 rebounds per game, maybe 1-2 blocks.. He would be very useful to this team right now, and add surprise depth at the C.

    For some reason, I still don't want to see Biedrins as a Warrior anymore. And I admit he's been much better this year playing a more simple role off the bench (rebounding, defense, adding a few fouls to our big men rotation... and that's it, but that's a lot coming from him), but I still cringe when he's out there.

    Pretty sure it's PTSD from his last years.

    I was just checking out espns trade machine, looking for a trade to make and I really couldn't come up with a solid trade that would positively impact the team in the present and future...

    Out of curiosity, what trade(s) would you make? Would you not make a trade and continue to improve the roster thru the draft?

    Well, we don't have a single pick this year (our fist rounder will go to the Jazz, second to the Magic), so... not much we can do in the draft.

    I'd only look to move some salary in order to re-sign Jack in the offseason. Hopefully Landry will pick up his player option to remain a Warrior for one more year. Rush should pick up the option as well, considering he's missing the whole year. That would mean our team will remain the same for one year (which is not a bad thing, considering we've got a ton of rookies that will have one more year of experience). After that, we'll have a ton of cap space 2014-15 season... and a lot of decisions to make (re-signing Bogut, extending Klaus, etc...)

    But, as for this upcoming offseason, the biggest move should be to get a shooting coach working on a permanent basis with Draymond Green, so we can have him on the court even more. ;)
