Of course, as the rumor mill churns into high gear with almost a week to go before next Thursday's draft, the Warriors are also believed to be very interested in Curry and another potential Knicks target, Brandon Jennings. There is this caveat, however: According to a person with knowledge of the situation, Warriors guard Monta Ellis was assured by team brass that they would not select a guard and Jordan Hill was the intended target.

Jordan Hill, however, is being targeted by the Wizards at No. 5 and would also be a preference of the Dallas Mavericks, who have engaged in discussions with Washington for the pick. Don Nelson reportedly told Hill last week that if he were still on the board, the Warriors would take him at No. 7. NY Newsday Blog

Former Bucks GM Ernie Grunfeld isn't afraid to pull the trade trigger, and that's why rumors about him dealing the Washington Wizards' No. 5 pick are gaining more credence. I'm hearing a deal, which would revolve around Phoenix's Amar'e Stoudemire and the wizards' top pick, has a decent chance of going down. Journal Times
