only missed 9 games in each of the last 2 seasons. He's a solid player and would fit in great with Casey's system along side Valancuinas,especially if they got Gay too.

The only downside is that he's 29 and Andrea is turning 27,but that's equal value right there. If the Raptors could get Gay for Derozan and if that made sense,it would've been done already lol,believe that!
We have to look at the context in which those numbers were manufactured: he played for the Knicks (Dantoni) and Warriors system. Maggette was dropping 20 points for Warriors and Felton was like 17 and 9 for the Knicks. Bargnani has 3 years 33million dollars vs David Lee 4 years 57 million dollars and Bargs I would argue is a better overall player. I would have made DeRozan the centerpiece of the deal and then there's draft picks etc. But Colangelo traded his pick and has no appetite to trade DeRozan. He's way too high on him and overvalues him. There's no rush to do a trade at this point. An SF may become available if a team starts to underperform or we can wait for 2013 free agency instead of a complete overhaul of our team/assets. Bargnani hasn't proved much yet and Colangelo puts it nicely when he characterizes his game as an "enigma." He has the tools and played great for those first 13 games of the season. I would really like to see how he plays a full healthy season under Casey at the 4 spot. Will he be a star in the NBA? Most likely not. But probably the third with the potential to be a the second best guy on an Nba team. Let's use 2012 to evaluate our current roster to see who fits and doesn't; then clear space for 2013. I would love to see us have cap space to go after 2 big free agents in 2013 while at the same time keeping Bargs, Lowry, and Val.

Warriors Trade SF Dorell Wright to Philly for Draft Pick

By Marcus Thompson
Tuesday, July 10th, 2012 at 2:59 pm in Uncategorized.


The Warriors have agreed to trade Dorell Wright to the Philadelphia 76ers for a future draft pick, according to sources.

Trading Wright, the starting small forward the last two seasons, frees up $4 million off the Warriors’ salary cap. They now have about $8 million to of space before going over the luxury tax. That will help Golden State address other needs, such as front line help, a back-up point guard and a veteran scorer off the bench.

Golden State had been shut out of the free agency period thus far, largely because of limited salary cap space. But this trade allows for the Warriors to use their mid-level exception and bi-annual exceptions, or take on some $8 million of salary in a trade.

Wright’s grip on the starting small forward job, furnished by a breakout season under Keith Smart in 2010-11, had loosened thanks to the play of Brandon Rush and Dominic McGuire. After the Warriors’ drafted rookie small forward Harrison Barnes with the No. 7 overall pick, the writing was on the wall. Wright, because of his expiring contract, was the obvious choice for the Warriors to trade.
