Golden State Wants a SF


Word on the street is Golden State may be willing to trade their 1st round pick for a SF (http://www.cbssports.com/nba/blog/eye-on-basketball/19084494/report-warriors-shopping-lottery-pick-for-small-forward-upgrade).

Their pick is kind of complicated, as they are slotted for the seventh pick right now, but if someone jumps them during the lottery and they fall back, the pick goes to Utah.

Assuming that they don't lose the pick, the possibility of a sign and trade with the Blazers sending Batum, EW, and Babbitt or Smith to GS for Andris Biedrins, Dorrell Wright, and the pick seems reasonable. The trade as it stands is pretty fair, as Biedrins is languishing on their bench (he couldn't even get minutes when Kwame Brown went down for the year!) and the swap involves two starting SF. Wright would give us another established three point specialist, and Biedrins gives us some depth at the 5. Plus, the 3 lottery in a very deep draft, give us a lot of flexibility. We could trade up, steal a veteran toiling away on non-contender's roster (Eric Gordon?), or just draft 3 young guns to reload.

What do you think?
