I'm pretty sure we can still get something for Pietrus. A second rounder, maybe a late first from a contender that still needs a role player (and who hasn't followed closely Pietrus' career so far)... I'd do that deal in a heartbeat.

It seems like a lot of Warriors fans are the most up tight fans in the league when it comes to bringing people who aren't spotless princesses to the team, I say take him if we can get him for the minimum, he's a good enough player and a bargain.
You know, pest, the problem with Patterson, other than his off-court troubles (that shouldn't matter much, as he's been free of them lately), is also his behavior as a member of the team. It wasn't that long ago that he demanded playing time over his own teammates... I mean, the concerns are about keeping the chemistry this team has right now.
