Slam Dunk Central: Warriors Want Bosh, By Gosh

The Warriors will obviously have a decent pick at #7; but at the same time, with a little luck and some ingenuity, they could have the chance to move up and land one of the coveted top two picks in the draft lottery next Tuesday. Of course, if that doesn’t pan out - and I am pretty sure it won’t - there is a decent free agent class out there.

And the current flavor of the day for Golden State, you ask? Not surprisingly, the Toronto Raptors’ Chris Bosh. You just know that the Raptors would want something of value for Bosh if a trade was consummated. Probably the player that comes immediately to mind is the player who has the most upside - Anthony Randolph. But the thing is this - why trade Randolph for a player who more than likely will be a one-year rental?

The Warriors, if they considered a trade for Bosh, would probably have to include Andris Biedrins (no biggie there as height isn’t a virtue in Warriorland) for value and contract purposes. Any deal would no doubt be complicated as probably several contracts would be involved, and I am not going to pretend to speculate which players on a monetary basis could make a deal for Bosh doable.

Ideally, Bosh playing for Golden State makes sense. Realistically, I do not see it happening. I think that the matter of contract issues combined with what players would make the most sense in a proposed Warriors-Raptors transaction would render this scenario DOA. But hey - Golden State has the #7 pick, right?

Rumour: Warriors Targeting Bosh

For Andris Biedrins, Brandan Wright, and Marco Belinelli .... I'd do it.

he will have done something Chris Mullin couldn't do as a front office executive of the Warriors for 5 long years- bring in a legit star power forward.

* he will have upgraded this roster like Beyonce. Bosh is a superior player to anyone on this current Golden State Warriors roster.

* for just something like Andris Biedrins, Brandan Wright, and Marco Belinelli (as Tim tossed out) the Dubs have to do it. Not that he isn't a very nice player already, but Biedrins has pretty much topped out unless he dedicates himself to playing good defense and improving his incredibly limited offensive repertoire. Wright has proven to be injury-prone and incredibly soft in his first two seasons in the league- refusing to part ways with him right now is fairly ridiculous. Belinelli is a borderline NBA talent who has played no more than a dozen or so decent games at this level. They're all expendable.

* without moving Anthony Randolph then I'm all for it- I'd be ecstatic. AR appeared to be a cry-baby with questionable work ethic and low hoops IQ for most of the season. Credit both Randolph's re-dedication and the coaching staff's patience and ultimatums for the intriguing young talent we saw at the end of the season.

* for a package containing both Biedrins and Randolph the Warriors will still be winners in the trade. Unlike Biedrins, Bosh is a player other teams have to plan around and strategize against. He's the real deal and is pretty much guaranteed to be the Dubs first All-Star since that man who had trouble feeding his family on an NBA paycheck. I'm more than amused by Randolph's ridiculous upside (which is saying something because I rarely buy into player development or mythical playing potential for raw young players- especially on the Dubs), but it could take him years to average 22 points and 10 rebounds with about as many assists as turnovers which is what Bosh can do NOW if AR ever even gets there (which is not a given by any stretch of the imagination). After 1 playoff appearance in 15 years, do you really want to wait to see if he might become a 20-10 big man? If there's a way to win now by cashing in on his potential in the present, then it doesn't make much sense to wait.

* the Warriors better have a good back-up plan if he opts out and leaves in the summer of 2010. Still, wouldn't you rather have Bosh's Bird rights as your trading chip than anyone else on this less than stellar Warriors roster?
the Warriors will not win under 30 games next season and actually be watchable. Shoot they might even instantly be good enough for that P-word.

Now that's a lot of if's.

You win in this league with superstars and stars. I'm not convinced that Bosh is a superstar or will ever be one. I do think that's a big red flag that the Craptors couldn't even qualify for the "Not-So-Elite-8" in the Leastern Conference this past season. But he is a legit All-Star caliber big man and a proven commodity (Career Numbers via Yahoo! Sports). Those are hard to come by, especially for the Golden State Warriors who haven't had an All-Star power forward since Nate the Great Thurmond in 1974. (NINETEEN SEVENTY-FOUR for crying out loud!)

If the Warriors can net trade Chris Bosh this summer (and I'm not saying the Raptors are dumb enough to do it for what "assets" the Warriors have), they've got to do it. It could be a franchise altering move just like the trade for Baron Davis back in 2005.

BRING Bosh TO THE BAY.

How about a place where Bosh would likely want to get S&T like Houston. Theres many options there.

Battier
Scola
Landry
T-Mac
Wafer
Lowry
Etc.

Pack three of these together and lets get rolling next season. Preferably after T-Mac shows that he's back to being himself again.

And dont say that we dun need no crybaby here, cause no one was saying that when he dropped 13 in 33 seconds.

And for the Bosh to Golden State.. We've heard it all, but we wont get enough value in return unless Bosh wants to resign and then get traded, very unlikely for Golden State to force.

Its not enough.

I want their pick and they take Banks.

If we're going to trade our best player, we've gotta find a way to solve at least some of our problems

Thatīs definately not enough, I donīt care if Biedrins is a good player and Wright and Belinelli have talent, they both are inconsistent as hell! I wouldnīt trade Bosh unless we get a proven star at his level, or young rising allstar tyep of players like Ellis!

I guess I'm in the minority then.

But regarding Ellis, since his accident he's too much to take a risk on at this point. Who knows when the effects of his accident are going to have more permanent side effects to his basketball career.

Yep.

But in my trade, who cares, ship him out if he wants out. Turiaf is a beast, Ellis is a star, and Randolph might be Bosh in two years!

I am a huge fan of Ellis, without a doubt he would look real good as a sg here. Also love Randolph and Turiaf.

Give me Ellis, Turiaf, Randolph and a pick for Bosh and a contract(Banks)

If BC trades for Ellis he should be fired on the spot and banned from the NBA forever. You people do realize the Warriors were that close to voiding his damn contract? Hes not even 75% of what he used to be pre idiot accident. And his contract is absolutely awful with the risk of him a) never returning to full strength, or b) getting injured again and us being stuck with it forever.

Again, if we're trading with GSW, that trade proposal should be Randolph in there instead of Wright, because Wright is a pansy and hes injured too often. Give us Marco as well, swap picks if theyre higher, then there'd be something there. Id take Turiaf if he didnt have a longterm deal, hes the ideal big off the bench for any team much like a Chris Anderson. Very good post defender and weakside shotblocker, can knock down a 15 footer and is a fantastic teammate.

If Bosh is traded, i think this team would give us the most in return.

Bosh/Kapono

For

Biedrins/Crawford/Randolph/Belinelli (20Mil)




I just saw a rumour at ESPN.com that stated Bosh might be going to Dallas, but you need to be an Insider so i don't know what they're saying.
