The World Famous LayupDrill Rumor Mill
May 15, '09
Now, word out of Oakland is that the Warriors, who are desperately seeking a dominant force in the paint, have hopes of scoring the top pick in the draft to grab Blake Griffin. However, if they are not able to secure that spot, then the focus may turn to acquiring Bosh.
Rumors have floated around on what it would take to bring Bosh to Golden State. One rumor had a trade package of Monta Ellis, Ronny Turiaf, and Anthony Randolph for Bosh, while others stated that the Warriors first-round pick this year would need to be packaged with Ellis and possibly Brendan Wright for Bosh.
Either way, expect Toronto to field phone calls from many teams once the order of the NBA Draft is revealed.
In other news, our friends at CollegeHoops.net reports that the Knicks seem to have many options for point guard in the NBA Draft. It was reported earlier this week that former Davidson guard Stephen Curry was the primary choice of Knicks management, should they end up with the No. 8 pick.
However, Brandon Jennings Eric Maynor, and Ty Lawson will also get some strong consideration.
Mavs GM Donnie Nelson stated while he believes Dallas has the major pieces in place, they will be looking to add younger, more athletic playmakers on the wing that can take the scoring load off of Jason Terry and Dirk Nowitzki.
