Well, one can hope at least.
The Warriors had the chance to clean the slate with Biedrins last season by using their amnesty clause on him, but chose not to do it.
Now they have the task of trying to move a bad player with an even worse contract. With Bogut soon patrolling the paint and Jeremy Tyler emerging behind him, the Warriors can actively look to deal him. Now without having to worry about leaving themselves without a post presence.
So let's throw some gas on the trade rumor fire now to get it going early.
This deal works!
Here the Warriors would finally get rid of Biedrins, who desperately needs a change of scenery, for a former No. 2 overall pick, who desperately needs a change of scenery. This would be an opportunity for Marvin Williams to learn under Richard Jefferson as he could help him utilize the talents he has (had) that made him such a high draft pick.
They would lose Dorell Wright, but with only has one year left on his deal he might not be back anyway, while gaining ZaZa Pachulia. Who would provide them with a nice big man for their rotation. The Hawks would get a center for whom they can plug in next to Al Horford, shifting more of his time at power forward, his more natural position. Plus they would add much-needed scoring in Wright.
This is just one option of others the Warriors should be looking at to finally put an end the Biedrins era.
