Sounds like GS has some money problems.
Looked at strictly from the bottom line, it was nowhere near that difficult. The Warriors will save more than $21 million by shedding Fisher — scheduled to make $5.9million this season — while adding three players.
That's the kind of savings that could be used to lock up Mickael Pietrus, who becomes a restricted free agent at the end of the season if he's not signed to a long-term extension by Oct. 31. Or it might give Golden State enough room to bring on forward Al Harrington, an athletic defender and restricted free agent in Atlanta.
The capped-out Warriors, who already have roughly $66 million committed in salary for next season and according to ESPN.com are one of only three teams currently projected to be over the luxury tax threshold of $65.5 million, can't make Harrington a serious offer as a free agent.
But they could snag him via a sign-and-trade deal with the Hawks, and Harrington has told several media outlets recently that the Warriors and Pacers are the leading contenders for his services.
Asked if he'll be disappointed if this is the only move his team makes over the summer, Mullin wouldn't bite.
"We'll see what shakes out," Mullin said. "I don't want to forecast one way or the other."
