GS could trade down to Dallas.
Dallas Trades:Golden State Gets
Golden State Trades: Dallas Gets
Instant cap relief for Golden state and get the player they want in Terrence Williams.
Dallas gets a swingman to put next to Kidd, and draft the player the want in Hill if available which i think he will.
Of course it could be biased since im a Mavs fan but what do ya'll think?
Thats a long way to trade down to just get cap space. Plus there is no guarantee Williams is still thee at #22, Chicago could take him before that.
think Williams will go that low. Probably go before the 20th pick and after the Lottery. It isn't fair for the Warriors, how about they trade another pick if they do have one because basically the Mavs get that guy they've been wanting to score as well as a high draft pick. Aren't they over the tax enough already? They have something like the 3rd highest payroll. Magette isn't exactly cheap and the 7th pick wouldn't be that cheap as well. Maybe if you unload Howard then it seems somewhat fair, but that's still a great deal for the Mavs and a lower then average deal for the Warriors.
But chances are Chicago takes someone else, because if Blair is left i think they take him, i think he could drop to them even though he has lost weight but the other teams that are in front have other needs, and he can do great things for the bulls he has a good postup game.
Ok but lets just say they both actually were drafted by both teams. They did the trade afterwards. Like the Wolves and Grizz last year.
No, that is the dumbest trade ever. Why would they give up a a good player to move DOWN?
Not only that, but stackhouse is a free agent, so it's not even possible.
Am not sure about the situation of Golden State but the only way I see that trade happening is if the intent is to get rid of Maggette. The two most valuable items in that trade are Maggette and the 7th pick. Stackhouse's value is only as an expiring contract. The way it works out is that the two best chips go to Dallas virtually for junk.
If, however, GS wants to get rid of salaries, then the picture changes where the 7 pick is the cost of "forcing" Dallas to take Maggette off their hands. Am not sure though that Maggette is that bad of a player (or a contract) that you need to throw away the 7 pick just for someone to take him.
Please understand Golden State wants to get rid of some contract and STACKHOUSE IS NOT A FREE AGENT HE CAN BE BOUGHT OUT FOR 2 MIL WHEN HIS SALARY IS 7 MIL, so he is more valuable than you think. They also don't want to pick Williams with the seventh because he's projected to go lower so why not trade down lose a contract and still get the player they want.
its not that he's a bad player its that he gets paid toooo much to be a sixth man, even though Terry gets paid just as much but he was there starter for the Fianls team.
Even if GS is committed to lowering its salary cap, I don't think they'd do something so...illogical. We know, they know, Don Nelson knows that the team needs a true point...and we have a point guard heavy draft here, which would be really beneficial with the team having the 7th pick. Stackhouse has value as a way to lower cap, not to win...and Nelson has not expressed a desire to move Maggette, just to move Crawford (if he doesn't opt out on his own).
It's a bad trade because it in no way helps the Warriors, other than letting them have some cap relief. It weakens the team, doesn't allow them to draft a good point guard, and basically only helps Dallas. The Warriors have yet to make a Memphis/Detroit/Sacramento type move to simply shed contracts, so I doubt they'd start now.
Plus, it's all based on the assumption that the Warriors are sold on Williams...a rumor at best.
The warriors have a payroll of about 64mil next year, not really that bad. Magette is getting paid about 9mil next year, which is not bad at all either. I don't really understand why they would want to dump him, he's a pretty good value for what they are paying him, and I have not read anywhere that GS is trying to free up cap space. If they did want to deal Magette, I'm sure they could get a dozen better offers for him, that wouldn't involve them losing their pick.
Golden needs a PG, where have you read they want T will?
This is an insanely biased trade in Dallas's favor, and maybe you should reframe from posting more trades about your team in the future to avoid further embarrassment.
I totally agree with you...Maggette isn't great, but he isn't horrible. And we've seen teams trying to shed payroll...it's obvious when teams like Sacramento and Memphis do it. But the Warriors acquired (aka took on more salary) Jamal Crawford last year...that isn't a cost cutting move.
At least he did say he was a Mavs fan. If they wanted to get rid of Maggette, they could try straight up dealing him to a contender with cap space.
