how about we forget about turiaf and make a 3-way trade with the bulls and sonics.

bulls recieve: al harrington from the warriors
sonics reieve: kirk hinrich from the bulls
warriors recieve: chris wilcox and johan petro from the sonics.

then maybe we sign shaun livingston as our backup point guard.

I think he may be heading back overseas.

I actually liked Kosta, to tell you the truth. In his two games, he frustrated the heck out of Bogut and kept Shaq in check. Shaq may be old, but he's still Shaq and Kosta is still Kosta.

I'm beginning to like the two signings but wish we could have offered Iggy a bigger contract!!! He's younger and he would fit well!!!

Maggette and Turiaf bring both toughness and rebounding to our team!!!

I think we have an answer to both Boozer and Millsapnow!!! 8)

i am not into a player like Turiaf, if u talked about Wilcox...i am on it.
I would like to see Hinrich,wilcox play for W's and these 2 guys will make our team better...Turiaf for me is like version of YOUNG ADONAL FOYLE.

Not sure why all of you are hating on Turiaf, he's only 25 years old. He's 6'10'', can run up and down the court. Adds much needed rebounding and shot blocking, plus he can score around the basket. His FT% has consistently gotten better over the years too. He brings all the things that Warriors fans were drooling over when we drafted Hendrix.

He also apparently brings it at 4M/year, which is the cause for any consternation.

great post right there, he fits a need very well. Hes not an amazing player but we are retarded when it comes to defense and rebounding and he will improve that aspect of our team tremendously.

I'll need to be convinced on the Turiaf signing. I'm not a huge fan, as I felt he flopped hardcore on a foul against us last season... plus, he seemed kinda dirty, from a 3rd party view. On the other hand, I love hustle and energy, which seems to be the MO that Los Angeles has given him.

And dirty players don't seem to bother me when they're on our side. :mrgreen:

I said in another post that Davis is being presented as a superstar down there. It is not like Kobe is being replaced by Magette and Turiaf, as they will find out to their consternation. They may well put the idiot label on someone else.

Coach Dunleavy was on and was clearly pissed that Brand left. He thought everything was set and ok and felt he was fooled. Kind of like here.

I know its subtle, but the keys to the franchise are being revoked on Nellie. He was given the right to buy out Cabby, and Foyle and ship out J-Rich. He was given the green light for the Italian shooter instead of a PG like Javaris and he placed his eggs in the BD, Jack, Harrington crew which didn't sniff the playoffs and performed lousy at the end of the season. Compared to BRand who completely hosed the Clippers, Mullin was never on planning on building the team around BD and his low FG percentage. Mags and Turiaf give us a physical team that will make getting the free throw without getting down or grabbing rebounds a lot harder preposition for the softer Western Conference teams. While Pietrus, Al, and Barnes are nice role players, tough PF they were not. Assuming we get more rebounds, have a nice tall line up (Biedrins, Harrington, Mags, Jackson and Ellis) we should be a uptempo high percentage team in need of some good shooters more than a pure point guard .. just ask LeBron. This lineup screams Mags and Jackson in the post with Harrington pulling a big to the perimeter. The big question that remains to be seen (besides the swap for Kirk and Al) can Jackson take over the SG position to a Paul Pierce type level and be a primary ball handler creating the half court offense or will he revert to his late season of form of jacking up ill-advised threes and dead legs. The two easiest ways of annoying a GM is sitting high lottery picks and not making the playoffs.

Shouldn't this have happened already? I thought the deadline was yesterday?
