Warriors Get: Al Horford, Marvin Williams
Hawks Get: Andris Biedrins, Dorell Wright
Like in the Bucks trade, it's likely that Biedrins just needs a new environment. Larry Drew's offense is slow, with numerous Joe Johnson isolations, and Biedrins would perform well just getting boards and buckets again and play next to an electric player in Josh Smith.
But for Atlanta, the real centerpiece in this trade is Dorell Wright. In his first year in Golden State, Wright scored more than he did in the previous six seasons, and the former D-Leaguer was a serious candidate for Most Improved Player. His style of play contrasts Joe Johnson, so the two should work well together on the wing.
In addition, the Hawks can get rid of the $80 to 90 million that they owe the two players over the next five years.
As for the Warriors, Al Horford is similar to David Lee, and having two such players on one team should do wonders for Golden State. Horford is a serious upgrade over Biedrins, and his game should improve when he plays with a terrific facilitator in Stephen Curry.
Marvin Williams is more of a post player, but can play alongside Monta Ellis with ease. He's not a huge scorer, so Ellis and Curry won't have to worry about giving up some touches.
Williams and Horford may be able to justify the extra bucks the Warriors will be spending on them and lead Golden State back to the postseason, a place that the fans have seen only once in the past 17 years.
