What do we really want in return?
I think in a trade with the Warriors we can get it all.
I know GSW will only trade one of Ellis/Bellinelli/Wright alongside bigger contracts so this is what I cooked up:
2008 #1 pick
Pietrus (S&T 14m 3 yrs)
Foyle (3 yrs remaining with last year a team option)
Brandan Wright is the centerpiece of the deal. He has unlimited potential and is a project for the future. Diogu will get his chance at the PF spot untill Wright takes over.
The 2008 #1 pick will probably be somewhere around #20 but this year there were still some good players available.
Pietrus can play at the SG spot, he's a good defender and is a slasher like Daniels.
I won't say anything about Jasikevicius, as most of you know how I think about him.
Foyle adds to the bad contracts we already received from the Warriors but the main thing is that his contract expires when we need to resign Granger & Diogu.
Our lineup after this trade:
PG - Tinsley/Jasikevicius/Diener
SG - Daniels/Pietrus/Rush
SF - Granger/Dunleavy/Williams
PF - Diogu/Murphy/Wright
C - Foster/Foyle/Harrison
I can live with that roster.
