Another option at SF is Ricky Davis.

Warriors trade Murphy and Pietrus for Ricky Davis and Troy Hudson.

We get a far better SF than is here now and he might fit in great with Baron and JRich. RDavis gets more assists than Dunleavy, is a decent enough rebounder and a very good scorer.

TWolves get a big guy that is better than any they have right now. Eddie Griffin supplies the shotblocking that Murphy doesn't and Murphy supplies the rebounding that Griffin doesn't. Murphy would play Center mostly and some PF. Pietrus could really be interesting to McHale as he could basically be like Ricky Davis

Now that's a trade I'd like. Although I'm not sure about Minny. We're talking about McHale... who knows what's going on in his head?. At least, I'd try it... but not for Troy Hudson. I'd rather have an expirer, any expirer, than Hudson.

No way TWolves do this without getting something taken off them they don't like. Hudson has a cheaper contract than Murphy and even dun do it is not that bad. Hudson might retire soon anyway

Mullin just has to ask and McHale might bite

Yeah, I would much rather have Odom, but it's unlikely we will get him, if he's even available. So Ricky Davis would be an upgrade, and the TWolves might do this.

Ricky Davis is only 27 as well so he could be around for a few years. He is a proven productive player and that is the good thing

Yeah, he is an upgrade over Dun and for Murphy (who I want out to make minutes for Ike) it's fine by me. It is a roster upgrade assuming Diogu pans out.

I wouldn't mind even trying to scam Eddie Griffin for either O'bryant or Biedrins in that deal. Could be even more worthwhile

Still, he has great potential and is a good outside shooter and shot blocker

Why not? I like Biedrins too but Griffin is young also and has more polished skills right now. Both are similar but Griffin at least has a jump shot

And the chef doesn't?.

I found this funny. We draft this guy for the great potential he has and now we propose to trade him for the great potential Eddie Griffin has...

PS: I'd do that in a heartbeat.

See, it's a toss up between longterm potential and already proven ability with bit more potential as well. In the case of Biedrins and Eddie Griffin, Biedrins shows heart and effort but not much skill at all. He does show potential to develop but it has been three years now and the improvements have been modest, which is why some fans are starting to raise their eyebrows. Griffin, though he has been somewhat a bit of an insecure individual, has recently shown ability to be a good role player. That role player ability could be even better with more talent around him, like Baron, JRich and Diogu, talent he doesn't have around him at the moment.

I would like nothing more than all the players currently on the roster to stay and all flourish to the level where the team wins the championship but that is looking more and more unlikely. Any changes could be subtle, yet make a huge difference, like getting one or two better role players that do the little things (scrappiness, trying to block shots even if the don't actual get them, they change alot of shots, energy and stuff like that). I remamber Bo Outlaw used to do alot of the little things for the Magic some 6 years ago
