The Warriors ownership is in flux and so trades become less likely. Although, perhaps more possible with discussions of Anthony Randolph being traded.
So, because the Warriors front office is considering bad trades. I thought I would put out a few that might help the warriors.
I think they are all possible, but it is always great to get feedback.
Not all trades will necessarily improve the team, but they will at least improve its cap situation.
I tried to focus on players that should be available. Most ideas have us moving Maggette and Ellis.
Maggette is a great sixth man, but he makes nine million dollars a year and he is on the wrong side of 30.
Ellis is a great scorer, exciting to watch, and young enough to grow. However, he has been getting less efficient as he ages, is ball-dominant, and a sub-par passer.
Hollinger picked him as the biggest ball hog in the league. In addition, watching this year, the Warriors looked better, with a few exceptions, when he was not on the court.
I am also afraid that he will refuse to change given that he has said he is the second best player in the league.
If you believe that, you are probably not going to change. With his declining efficiency, he needs to change to a secondary role.
Hopefully, you will enjoy.
