Randolph could be joined by center Ronny Turiaf or swingman Kelenna Azubuike, and an expiring contract such as forward Vladimir Radmanovic.

Warriors Ready to Ship Randolph to Knicks for Lee … Waiting on LeBron

By Marcus Thompson
Wednesday, July 7th, 2010 at 3:14 pm in Uncategorized.

Would you like the Warriors acquiring David Lee if they could also keep guard Monta Ellis?

That is a distinct possibility depending on LeBron James’ decision tomorrow. Multiple sources told me the Warriors have an offer on the table that sends forward Anthony Randolph and other pieces to New York in a sign-and-trade deal for Lee.

If LeBron announces he is going to New York, in order to make room for his max contract, the Knicks would have to renounce Lee to free up the cap space. That would end the sign-and-trade possibility and the Warriors’ chances at Lee. But if LeBron doesn’t say the Knicks when he announces his decision …


… Then the Warriors are “in the game” for Lee. One source said the Knicks have at least three sign-and-trade offers on the table in case LeBron opts to play elsewhere. But the Warriors like their chances, considering Randolph is a hot commodity. The Knicks really like Randolph and weren’t so high on Ellis. Certainly, the contracts have something to do with it.

I have not confirmed who the other players are, but the obvious candidates are center Ronny Turiaf, swingman Kelenna Azubuike and forward Brandon Wright. It’s possible an expiring contract is in there (Vladimir Radmanovic). But, from what I’m told, the Warriors advantage is that they can offer players, which the Knicks’ need.

Of course, Golden State would have to work out a deal with Lee for a sign-and-trade to happen, even if the Knicks like the Warriors’ offer better. One source said the Warriors will not offer a maximum contract, but the Warriors could go as high as $13 million in the first year of a six-year contract (that would be $78 million excluding raises). With Chicago signing Carlos Boozer, that is one less team the Warriors have to worry about. However, New Jersey can still outbid the Warriors. Plus, Lee could, in the end, prefer to land elsewhere.

Warriors’ management, I’m told, is excited at the prospect of adding Lee to Ellis, Stephen Curry and center Andris Biedrins. That would give them four positions set and address their rebounding disparity.

Definitely risks involved. If the Warriors gave Lee $10 million a year, no raises, that is $60 million committed. To do that and give up Randolph, whew, that is a lot. But, Lee is a 20-10 guy who has proven himself. He is more of a win-now guy than Randolph. I think Randolph has star potential, but I understand if the team wants to cash in potential for certainty. Still, if Lee isn’t a 20-and-10 guy … I’ll just say it’s risky. But I definitely like Lee with Monta than Lee inexchange for Monta. The effectiveness of Lee will depend a lot on Biedrins. If he gets back to what he was, and he would have help on the boards, that would go a long way to helping this potential Lee deal pay off.

Oddly enough, one source was convinced the Warriors can pull off this big a deal without onwer Chris Cohan pulling the plug. With the sale pending, it would seem adding such a big contract is off limits. But I was assured it was not, and if everything falls in place the Warriors will do this deal. The belief is that getting Lee does not hurt the value of the franchise.

Why not?

* Because they aren’t giving away one of their big draws (Curry, Ellis), though one could argue Randolph is a big deal to Ws fans

* Because they are getting an All-Star. I’m told president Robert Rowell and even Cohan are excited about adding Lee

* Because all they really did was replace Maggette (and whoever they threw in) with Lee, so it is pretty much revenue neutral for this season

If we get LeBron, I'm fine with getting nothing for Lee. But I'm happy that Lee will get us something if LeBron doesn't end up a Knick.

To me this confirms the Knicks are not at all aware that Lebron has already chosen them as his destination.

For example Jared Dudley claimed his source heard directly from one of the Knicks people that Lebron is going to sign with them. So much for that.

i dont know if you guys really know who jared dudley is...he is no journalist or FO person, he's the suns backup SF...his source is probably amare, which would make him a little biased. he and amare are friends, they worked out together before free agency

07-07-2010, 07:22 PM
That's a great offer for Lee, They will need a defensive presence down low with Amare being the Scoring Forward. And Buike is a nice piece and Rad Vlad is a nice role player and if they get Turiaf then they made out like bandits.

I agree. They need to pair Curry with another combo guard who does more defending and less scoring, or is at least effective off the ball.

The Knicks have at least three sign-and-trade offers involving Lee on the table if LeBron chooses to sign elsewhere.

Ronny Turiaf is another candidate to be included in the deal.

The Warriors could go as high as $13 million in the first season of Lee's deal.

I know who he is, but exactly because of the reason he knows Amare and who-knows-who-else I am not immediately dismissing his claims as bs. Aafter hearing the interview however I did, although he really seemed to believe what he was saying himself.

I think he said in the radio interview TZM (or whatever) had with him that he hadn't talked about this with Amare (he could just want to keep Amare out of it in case it was him), and his source was someone else who heard directly from someone on the inside of the Knicks organisation.

I like the deal for the Knicks. Once Amare signed they pretty much said bye to David Lee and to get a good young player with a lot of potential for someone that you had no intentions of signing is good.

Can we switch Beidris for Turiaf. I don't like this trade with Turiaf in it. He bring a ton of energy off the bench when he comes in and he is a good defender(something we can't really loose).

Production is fine but you can't count on them to defend a normal size backcourt with consistent success. How many times have you seen a backcourt of two players who aren't the most proficient defenders doing anything in the playoffs?

Curry is going to be great. Just roll with him and move Ellis.

This could either be a FANTASTIC off-season or a GREAT off-season either way i'll be happy with what we come out with.

I wasn't impressed with Randolph at first, but before his ankle injury he was playing great. Mike D's system is perfect for this kid, but he needs to mature more.

I agree with you. If we get offered something really valuable for Ellis than trade him. I just didnt want to trade Ellis for Lee because not only we lose a starting guard, we add another big and we have alot of those!

Richardson was a capable defender when he wanted to be. A lot of crappy defenders show up on defense when the playoffs roll around. And he is also 6'7. Curry and Ellis are both 6'3.

Great 2 for 1 deal to help fill our roster in case we miss out on LeBron. It also uses no space. Get Turiaf and Randolph for Lee then sign Felton/Ridnour and hold on to the rest of the cap space:

PG - Felton
SG - Chandler
SF - Gallinari
PF - Anthony Randolph
C - Amar'e

Bench
PG - Douglas
Wing - Bill Walker
Big - Turiaf / Earl Barron

Curry's expiring + Leftover Cap = Enough for a 2011 Max.

That's not a bad plan at all and that lineup is young and can get better. I really don't see it happening though.

How is it a good move for Golden State?

How is overpaying a guy coming off a career season where he statpadded with a bad team a good move?

We arent going to the Playoffs with Lee. We arent going to the Playoffs without Lee. We arent going to the Playoffs with Bruce Lee, Jason Lee, or Jet Li.

I guess the main problem from Golden State is that they are already set with PFs, and Randolph has a high ceiling, but he hasn't shown me anything he can to prove he can be great. Lee is a huge upgrade but I do agree, the Warriors still can't make the playoffs with him.

David Lee would be great with the Warriors. For a prospect that hardly plays. Yes he has good upside, but hasnt done anything and Lee has proven that he can get it done with rebounding and scoring.

A really good player

Curry would actually have another player. A real player. Thats still young and underrated.

plus they dont have to give monta who they can tarde for another player cuz he does have good value.

Good Trade For The Warriors

Warriors have Ellis-Curry-Lee-Biedrins to build with and is an NBA ready team.

Knicks have: Gallinari-Chandler-Amare-Randolph to build with and still have the ability to sign Lebron James!

Can you imagine
PG- Lebron
SG- Chandler
SF-Gallinari
PF- Randolph
C- Amare

why would you be? honestly, now that boozer is off the market, there are very few quality free agents left after LeBron makes his decision and right now I think David Lee is at the top...if they strike out on LBJ then I think they should re-sign David Lee for $12-13 mil a year, have another $3-4 left for a PG or wing player ex. Ridnour, Farmar, Anthony Morrow and then use the MLE on a veteran like Kurt Thomas or Juwan Howard...they need more bodies out there and I think that would be a good plan to do so

You're right - they probably just should not attempt to make moves and position themselves for the future. Jesus you're a ****ing douchebag.

Beyond that, if the Knicks get Lebron then you're going to look like a clown.

As a Warriors fan I'm not thrilled about this move - Randolph's future is brighter than Lee's.

Sounds like an insignificant trade between two insignificant teams. Neither team is going to be doing anything when the playoffs roll around.

You're right - they probably just should not attempt to make moves and position themselves for the future. Jesus you're a ****ing douchebag.

Beyond that, if the Knicks get Lebron then you're going to look like a clown.

As a Warriors fan I'm not thrilled about this move - Randolph's future is brighter than Lee's.

:facepalm:

wow ,i knew people overrated this guy to an extent even when i heard someone say they wouldnt trade him for Amare i was amazed..but i thought all that had stopped already
:facepalm:

David Lee is great and i wouldnt be surprised no matter where he goes (if his team is decent enough record wise) that he makes the all star team

David Lee is 26, undersized, and **** defensively. Anthony Randolph is 20 years old with monster upside - and his "Per 36" numbers are already better than Lee's. As his frame fills and he works to continues to improve his game under new coaching (who will actually develop him) I am fairly certain that he's going to be better than Lee. Much better. Beyond that, he's much cheaper and the Warriors are not building a contender this season (that part is the clincher) -- this would be a very poor move for the dubs. Only a kid with no understanding of Randolph's game/upside or Lee's limited abilities would scoff at me for not wanting to pull the trigger on this deal.

Never fill in a resume' for a GM position. Though I can't say it surprises me that the worst GM in pro sports over the past decade would be itching at the bit for this.

This coming from a guy who lives in OKC! lol Wow really, I'm sure you know a lot about basketball... Seriously though people never seem to know anything about the Warriors and always criticize them. Get the **** outta here :cool:

Hes raw as **** but he has a high upside as he begins to put things together.

Upside ? Kwame Brown was suppose to have upside?
What are the chances of AR becoming an all-star ? David Lee is an allstar!
Anthony Randolph hasnt shown any post moves that were legit

+1 You don't pay $13-15 Million/year for a guy who is not a top tier player who IMMEDIATELY makes you a contender. NY may have money to burn, but until Larry Ellison buys the W's, we gotta hold onto to our sheckles y'all.
No deal.

P.S.
Who is the dime piece with the soccer ball in your sig? +100 on that. Nice.

Do you know who else was an All Star?

Jamaal Magloire.

I couldn't care less. Anthony Randolph is 20. Lee wouldnt be an All Star in the West.

You arent patient. You are just like Warriors management. You aren't patient and would rather throw millions at guys to try to win but still lose in the process.

This is why we cant have nice things.

Doesn't randolph kinda play PF....didn't they just sign Amare who would be best if he played PF

i don't understand the logic

$GangGr33n$

Amare CAN lay center so they bring in Randolph to play PF so that they dnt lose Lee for nothing and they also get bigger which is something we need. makes perfect sense to me :shrug:

but wouldn't you rather utilize your 100mil dollar man a little more
plus there is no way STAT is stopping howard

I just see so many more needs than a PF...although i do love Randolph

Any chance Randolph can play SF?

I really do think that the Knicks will get Lebron, but if not this is a nice little consolation prize for David Lee.

knicks should make this move either way, lebron can play SG.
this move would leave knicks with 4 players above 6"8" wiht ability to shoot outised,get to basket, and ball handle its a "smorgus-board" of mismatch!!

MAKE IT HAPPEN DONNIE!!!
