Your the new owner of the GSW...

What would you do?

My list -

1. Fire all the coaches except the guards coach and player development coach

2. Trade Maggette for Gazduric

3. Hire Kevin Pritchard and Brian Shaw

4. Draft Cousins and pull this 4 way trade( http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=289y4tf) and get Indy's 10th and get Paul George or if we dont get Cuz draft Wes Johnson and Ryan Richards. I'd entertain trading Biedrins for a mid teen pick if Whiteside is there and take back the pick and a vet center(doesnt have to be a great one)

5. DONT RANDOLPH OR ELLIS

Lineup

PG - Curry, Williams
SG - Ellis, Morrow
SF - George, Azubuike
PF - Randolph, Wright
C - Cousins, Turiaf, Richards
or
PG - Curry, Williams
SG - Ellis, Morrow
SF - Johnson, Azubuike
PF - Randolph, Wright
C - Biedrins, Turiaf, Richards

Morrow should be an essential

Morrow should be an essential building block. For my money the best shooter in the league. Ellis is like Arenas; no team can ever really win with him as the 1st option, or with the team centered around him. See if a potential contender will take Maggette to clear cap room. Biedrins is a perfect fit in the middle due to his athleticism but Cousins would be a steal too; add some toughness. Randolph and Wright, the underweight big men, are the real wild cards. Reggie Williams can score like it's nobody's business, he's a real keeper. Azabuike plays extremely hard and produces when he's healthy. Here's my trade scenario:

Warriors get: Peja Stojakovic (15.3 expiring) and Morris Peterson (6.6 expiring)
Hornets get: Ellis (11) and Maggette (9.6)

The Hornets would fill every need and give Paul the lineup he deserves. Imagine: CP3, Monta, Maggette, West, Okafor. But for what matters:

PG - Curry
SG - Morrow
SF - Stajokovic
PF - Biedrins
C - Cousins

Bench: Reggie Williams, Azabuike, Randolph, Wright, Radmonovic (assuming opt-in), 34th overall pick and a couple free agents.

They would have a great core of Curry, Cousins, Biedrins, Morrow and Williams (perfect blending of basketball IQ, athleticism, strength, outside-shooting ability, length, and willingness-to-prove-something attitude), with $33 million to spend in 2011. That's what I'd do.

Biedrins confidence was

Biedrins confidence was fractured last season. He has always been an above average defender but his offense became so poor it was like playing 4 on 5 for the warriors on that end of the court. This problem was created by Biedrins absolute inability to shoot free throws. It became so bad Biedrins would avoid touching the ball altogether just so he wouldn't have to risk embarassing himself at the line where he shot a historically low 16% in 33 games. I know he was injured a lot last season but that is terrible.

That % is so bad you could take virtually any other human being capable of projecting a basketball that distance, and they would very likely make more then 16% of their free throws.

"I've bent over backwards with Biedrins trying to be positive," Nelson said after Wednesday's practice. "Whatever he's going through, he's not the same player this year as the last couple — or the same player that got him the big contract. Whatever it is, he's got to get the passion back. I can't do that."

"Biedrins doesn't really have an inside game that you could go to. When I've tried to go to it to get his confidence up, he hasn't delivered. His shot's not there. There's a way to be involved in a screen and role, and there's a way to hide and not be involved. I think he chooses to hide at this point. We're trying to demand that he get the ball and do things with it and be aggressive."

sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ball_dont_lie/post/Nellie-rips-Biedrins-passionless-play-free-thr?urn=nba,224161

Is this the same player all you Warriors fans seem to think has some sort of trade value around the league at his contract? Why would any team want him if they have any real post season or championship aspirations. Even if Biedrins somehow gets his FT's BACK UP to his career average of 51% its not like the guy was Ben Wallace on the defensive end. He was good but not "game changer" good.

Not last season. I don't

Not last season. I don't remember Billups being offered, but I know it wasn't last season or the season before. Denver would have never parted with him. If your suggesting Biedrins value is still high because Billups was offered 2 seasons ago thats not a very good arguement.

I'm not sure if last seasons production was due to injuries or Biedrins just lost his mind. In either case it doesn't explain the free throws. His value is ultra low for the moment. Perhaps Biedrins comes back bigger and badder then ever next season... at that point it might be worth revisiting trade scenario's for him.
