Default San Jose Mercury News: Warriors give away Belinelli

Quote:
* 10:10 p.m. update: OK, here’s one obvious reason, explained by Steinmetz–the Raptors are picking up most of George’s salary. Net talent gain for Warriors: None, in fact it’s a negative. Net cash gain for Chris Cohan: Priceless!

Absorb this straight cash-flow deal plus MT-2’s report, unrefuted, that the Warriors are planning on keeping 14, instead of the max 15 players this season to save money… And THEN let the homers tell me and MT-2 that Cohan isn’t having money problems that could and probably will lead to selling the team.

.

Yeah. Right

—Man, even the Warriors/Rowell/Mr. Nellie homers are going to have a tough time bucking up and praising the wise Warriors for this one.

So, since the dwindling homers probably need something to fire them up (’cause it can’t be the talents of Devean George!), I’ll give them some red meat:



Didn’t I tell you Larry Riley and Mr. Nellie were looking to dump 2007 first-round picks Marco Belinelli and Brandan Wright because Nelson was done with them? Yes, yes, I believe I did.



OK, good, that oughta trigger at least five angry comments.

But even I didn’t imagine Nelson/Riley would give away Belinelli to Toronto for something as meager as George, who I know fairly well since I covered him his rookie year with the Lakers and have watched him fairly closely in the many years since.

This is just a dump. A we-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-this-talented-player dump. A terrible, misguided, noxious dump by a team now run by an erratic, tired coach and a GM who does his bidding.
Warriors give away Belinelli, officially for Devean George, unofficially for no apparent reason | Talking Points

They sent cash back and more importantly Don Nelson wanted him out. Not sure why...No one knows what that cranky bastard will do next.

i think Beli is the GS' Joey G. we tried to give Joey a shot but he didn't progress. i'm willing to give this guy a shot since we lost AP.

Beli is a skilled and smart player. Joey Graham is an athletic dumbass.

It must be from a party with a couple of Thia ladyboys and a table full of booze and drugs.

Actually, they weren't willing to give him a chance and he progressed in spite of it. Joey, early in his career had chances but was not bright enough to take advantage. Plus i'd take Beli over AP anyday of the week.

i agree on both points jeff!! jg wasted his shot and Beli is and will be better than ap for many years to come... i love ap! class act, but i think MB will be a much more all-around player for us... and a better scorer.

They say nothing in the world is free. Bellinelli is as close as you can get.

I still don't know how Nelson managed to make it through all of last season. He seemed whacked out and ready for a heart attack in week one.
