A source familiar with Howard's thinking says he plans to test free agency and has considered the Lakers, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta and Golden State.

So we'd see One of Thompson or Barnes leave in a sign and trade. Don't really think thats much of an upgrade team wise especially if Bogut keeps healthy.

Are you kidding. Moving Barnes and Thompson for Dwight would make them better, not that I expect that. The Lakers would likely want a C back in return and that would mean Bogut (and maybe Barnes thrown in). If that's the deal on the table, I say take it.

Curry and Thompson in the back court with Lee and Howard in the front court? That's a great line-up, especially if Brandon Rush comes back healthy (he's a better 3pt shooter than Barnes even).

There are few players I wouldn't give up for Dwight. I think, after this season, LBJ and Durant are the only guys any GM in the league wouldn't trade for Dwight, and I'm sure a couple would even consider those two.


That said... where is the article? That site isn't very easy to navigate. You click on the link and it gives you like 40 links to scroll through, the Dwight article isn't on the top (or anywhere to be seen) and there's no search box on the page? That page needs some serious work.

No deal for sure, that is way too much to give up. Especially when the Lakers do not have the upper hand in this. The only way the Lakers do a sing and trade with Dwight is if he already told them he would not sign with them so getting Bogut and Thompson alone should be enough. Or else they get nothing in return and Dwight goes to the Rockets.

Hahaha. GL w/ that one. If we're talking an injured Bogut and 2010 D. Howard that would be a discussion.

There's no telling if he goes somewhere that it will be a sign and trade, either.

Here is the article (used Ctlr+F search for Howard): http://www.presstelegram.com/rss/ci_23302228?source=rss

With the Lakers and Warriors both over the salary cap, the salaries going to each team need to match. Luckily for the Warriors they have some big expiring contracts to help them with that. Bogut at $14 mil, Jefferson at $11 mil, and Biedrins at $9 mil.

I could see the Warriors sending out Bogut since they won't need him with Dwight. Then like mentioned before they would definitely need to send out at least one of their young up-and-coming guys in either Thompson or Barnes as well. Maybe throw in a draft pick too and it could be a done deal. I don't think the Warriors would be willing to give up both Thompson AND Barnes.

But If Dwight is going to leave anyway then might as well get something back for him and one of Thompson or Barnes is definitely better than nothing. The toughest part is would be sending him to a division rival, especially when that division rival is going to be very good and a team you will have to contend with for the next 5-6 years at least. Why make the move if you're going to create a team you may never be able to beat? That alone could stop the deal from getting done.

I like watching the Warriors as is with Bogut. If they get Dwight, within 1 month he'll start complaining about a lack of touches. Truth is he'd be like the 4th best offensive player on that team lol.

Curry, Klay, and Lee aren't just scorers, they're all well rounded offensive players. You can give the ball to Lee in the high post and he can make a great pass to a teammate.

Dwight isn't a very good passer, he turns it over quite a bit, and he has a limited offensive game. If he was to be okay with not getting the ball every time down, then yeah it's great for the Warriors.

No we have leverage because he, repeat, Dwight Howard is interested in us. Not the other way around. Yes he when healthy is a great player and we'd love to have him on the team but we don't need him with Bogut. A healthy Bogut has a more complete game then Howard. We are not going out of our way to chase him so yes we have more leverage than the lakers do. Another reason is for him to come here that would need to be a sign and trade which means he told LA to piss off.

Howard put up 17 points on 58% shooting, 12 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 1.1 steals per game.

Would you like to know how many players in the history of the NBA have had a season where they put up at least 17 points, 12 rebounds, 2 blocks and 1 steal per game while shooting 58% or above?

The answer is 1.

In a bad situation, with a coach that didnt fit his playing style, while playing injured, Howard still had a season that no other player in history has replicated. I know people love to hate on the guy, i dont like him either, but face the facts he is leaps and bounds ahead of every other Center in the league. To say he "sucked" is ridiculous.

Him less so than Bynum but as a warrior fan I'm happy with Bogut if he is healthy now. He can score a little out the post, can play d, and can pass very well for a big. I'd like to see this team another year older and with the experience of playing together all year. Don't forget we had 3 rookies with very big roles on this team.

I don't consider Dwight injury prone but back injuries can be bad news for bigs. Bogut is more injury prone of the two but he had two bad accidents that were kinda freak accidents. Although it was an ankle injury which is equally bad for bigs. It is a big if but he is healthy now and if he maintains it we will be very dangerous with lee back and Klay and Barnes another year older.

They are over what is called the luxury tax "apron" of approximately $74 mil, and this just means they can't receive a player in a sign-and-trade, but they can send one out.

Awesome thanks, thought they were completely unable to S&T but this makes more sense.

Oh sorry that was ThaDubs that said Dwight was injury prone. I don't know I think if you only have to give up Barnes or Thompson for Dwight then you do it. Dwight > Bogut in every aspect of the game except FT shooting.

No worries. It would prob be Barnes cause we'd want a 3pt shooter as good as Klay if we got Dwight. As far as Dwight better at everything other that FT shooting I disagree. Bogut has a better offensive skill set and is a much better passer than Dwight. The difference in defense is not so great. Don't me wrong he is the best player involved in the deal and we'd have to consider it. But as of now I don't think I'd do it.

curry
klay
barnes
lee
dwight(at full health)

If I was howard, thats where I would go. If the warriors can trade bogut and someone not named Barnes, thompson, curry, or Lee, they would have arguably the best starting 5 in basketball. Barnes is up and coming and has the chance to be a top sf in the league in a few years. That team would be hard to beat right away. A year after the trade, I would say best in the west.

Dwight would ruin everything positive happening in GS

I haven't watch Bogut play too much but he showed very little offensive game in the playoffs (maybe because he was still not healthy?) but regardless Dwight has average more PPG every year than Bogut. Dwight doesn't have a great offensive game, but I have little reason to believe Bogut's is much better. Better passer, ok I'll give you that.

Since money is always a factor, I want to point out, Howard would make more money with the Rockets and Lakers, playing with the warriors it's a 4 years contract with all the tax's California take out

lol, please

I love it. I was calling this with almost absolute certainty during the playoffs and got laughed at. Hows that sounding now? Don't worry, i'm used to having the last, and therefore the longest :laugh2:

That would be a nice addition for GSTATE

CURRY with D12 is a nice combo to build on, they would make a Finals run or two in a 5yr span with MJAX at the helm

I like watching the Warriors as is with Bogut. If they get Dwight, within 1 month he'll start complaining about a lack of touches. Truth is he'd be like the 4th best offensive player on that team lol.

Curry, Klay, and Lee aren't just scorers, they're all well rounded offensive players. You can give the ball to Lee in the high post and he can make a great pass to a teammate.

Dwight isn't a very good passer, he turns it over quite a bit, and he has a limited offensive game. If he was to be okay with not getting the ball every time down, then yeah it's great for the Warriors.

This would be the key to going in on howard if I'm the warriors too. That, and not giving up too much in the way of sign&trade.

Bogut and Barnes or Bogut and Klay for Howard would benefit both teams if Howard wants to leave L.A.

His first year in Los Angeles has not been a good experience for him to say the least. The Warriors and Rockets present him with the optimal chance to succeed long term.

The Bay Area is a large sports market but the press is hardly as critical and overbearing as they are in Los Angeles. I live in L.A. and grew up in the bay and there is a huge difference.

But other than Hollywood the bay presents Howard with all of the same amenities as Los Angeles, living in a large market/city. That's what Houston can't offer.

I swear on God and this is coming from a laker fan , if GS can somehow get Superman it really is a hand and glove fit. Name me one team that has more pure shooters to surround him with??

Yea he still isnt healthy and coming off a long break but its mostly cause Bogut wasn't asked to do anything other than enforce the paint. Dwight will average more cause he is asked to score more and is by and far more athletic. Which means points on the fast break and dunks. Bogut while not great offensively has a couple post moves he can use. I also never said much better offensive game but I do give him the edge because he actually has at least one post move and is a much better passer.

It would be a good fit and prob the first cause if Dwight was gonna be a warrior I'd rather Klay taken 3s than Barnes. But I just don't see the warriors wanting to give up on the team just yet.

He's also considering Sacramento, LA, Phoenix, San Antonio, Memphis, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, Olympiacos, the Toon Squad, Harlem Globe Trotters, Washington Generals, request to go to college since he opted out, Terror Squad, Saint Vincent Saint Marys, Cleveland, Orlando, Arsenal and Real Madrid.

You have to give up something good to get something good. Barnes rookie numbers weren't even that impressive: 9.2 PPG, 4.1 RPG 44% FG 11.08 PER....certainly not untouchable

As much as I want Barnes to stay, I agree with this.
