Dwight slams on Warriors
Marcus Thompson, the Warriors Beat Writer for the Bay Area News Group, reports:
One of the sources said Golden State is trying to get the Hornets to take Monta and pieces for CP3 instead of Curry. Not only can Curry play shooting guard because of his stroke, but he clearly has the most value and may help the Warriors make a serious play for Dwight Howard.
If the New Orleans Hornets agree to a Monta Ellis-for-Chris Paul swap, then this does open up the very real possibility that the Orlando Magic could make a deal with the Warriors around Stephen Curry.
However, if a deal does come to fruition between the Hornets and Warriors, New Orleans will probably be vying for more than just Ellis, as he is not their first choice. The Warriors would probably have to give up two out of the three of Klay Thompson, Dorell Wright and Ekpe Udoh.
With that trade completed the Magic then have an opportunity to trade for Stephen Curry, the young sharpshooter out of Davidson, along with one out of the three mentioned above. Plus, the Magic would probably want to add on a few draft picks.
I see this as a win-win for all parties, as the Warriors become relevant again, the Magic start the rebuilding process and Howard finally pairs up with a superstar.
