NBA Rumors: Warriors Shopping Longtime Center Andris Biedrins
NBA Rumors See Warriors Giving Up Hope on Center Andris Biedrins
Of all the spindly, paper-thin big men the Golden State Warriors have drafted throughout the years, Andris Biedrins was the best of them all,
Of course, this isn't saying much.
And after his second straight disappointing season after averaging 11.2 rebounds in 2008-2009, the Warriors appear to be growing tired of their former No. 11 pick in the 2004 NBA Draft.

Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob recently told Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News that the Houston Rockets had made an offer for Biedrins.
"However, we don't feel compelled to necessarily deal him ... Having said that, he has not performed to the level that he used to. If we got offered a great deal, like anybody else on the team, we'd have to consider it."
Previous reports had the Rockets offering Hasheem Thabeet and Jordan Hill for Biedrins, which is why it's no surprise no deal has been struck yet.
While Thabeet and Hill haven't offered much in their NBA careers, Biedrins still has the ability to average over 10 rebounds per game. He's also still just 25 years old.
The Warriors don't want to trade Biedrins just for the sake of it, but even a decent offer appears it would be enough to see Biedrins sent packing.
