Golden State Receives Much Needed Point Guard Help

Ryan Gaydos@@RyanGaydosSenior Analyst IJuly 22, 2008

The New Jersey Nets and the Golden State Warriors have agreed to a trade that would send Nets' point guard Marcus Williams to the Golden State Warriors for a conditional future first round draft pick.

Williams is only 22 years old and is entering his third season in the NBA. Williams was a member of the 2006-2007 NBA All-Rookie 2nd Team after averaging 6.8 points per game and 3.3 assists in the 79 games that he played for the New Jersey Nets. He was also selected to participate in the 2007 Rookie Challenge at the All-Star Game.

Last year, Williams played in 53 games and started 7 of those 53. He average 5.9 points per game and 2.6 assists. The Golden State Warriors made a good deal since they lost Baron Davis to the Clippers during free agency. However the Nets did not lose much since they did acquire Keyon Dooling in a separate trade the day before.
