That kid Yi Jianlian is an interesting player! I would think hard about trading a player like Ellis and maybe drafting this guy! But, I don't know if he'll be a bust and not turnout!

Maybe a poor man's Asian Dirk Nowinsky? He's got the athletic ablility to do well and get easy hoops in transition or maybe when the W's play halfcourt.

Or maybe Brandan Wright? Ever since the new players came in Ellis role has diminshed alittle bit. I don't see him being a 17-18 pt scorer next season? His big numbers came when the team didn't have the players to put on the floor!

The team has enough scorer types and needs a rebounder/defender PF

Both types of players would at least be able to hold players like Okur and AK in check in the playoffs! Barnes MP are not the answer!

Yi is a scorer and apparently not much of a defender so he will hold noone

I'm not down on Yi as much as others, but if we did trade up to those slots I'd definitely take Wright over the others. He might not have the immediate impact of Horford but he'll be a monster in a few years and still a huge upgrade at PF immediately.

Other than GSoM and Chad Ford having the "infatuation" and "inside information" on the Warriors high on Yi, I'm not high on him either. I see him as an Andrei Kirilenko type player. Breaks out and shows something, but suddenly falls back to Earth and becomes inconsistent.

The boys over there definately are high on Yi for some unknown reason. Not sure about his defense so the comparison to AK may be invalid

:shock:

Let's try to not get carried away... AK has proven lots of things in the NBA.

Also, the worst thing about Yi seems to be his (lack of) toughness and defense.

Oddly enough in an interview promoting the NBA in China Dwight Howard was asked what he thought about Yi and one of the first things he said he liked was his physicality. Maybe he meant that he likes beating up on guys his size due to their lack of physicality.

Or he was just playing to the crowd, which is the obvious case, as he spent half the interview slurping Yao Ming.

Still interesting that he'd say that immediately though.

He probably meant that Yi is athletic for his size which looks like. Point is that Yi is not what we need

True, but one thing he's lacked is consistency. He was seen no where in the Rockets series but then all of a sudden plays like the old AK47. Then after that against the Spurs he loses it. I'm saying is that I think Yi will prove lots of things, but will lack it on a consistent basis.

I think the perfect duo to pry loose would be Sean May and Brevin Knight from the Bobcats. May has a hard time staying healthy, but when he plays, he contributes both points and boards. He's no slouch either. I saw him fly up and down the court when the Tar Heels rolled to a title, mainly behind his behind.

Knight would be the perfect back up for Baron. He can handle the ball and make his freethrows. Pairing Knight and BD could also be very interesting.

I think J Rich nets May and Knight on the salary scale. The dubs get a young, low post player and a veteran back up for Davis.

The Bobcats get a wing player that they might need in order to replace Gerald Wallace.

The Warriors could then use their picks to load up on pure shooters and maybe a decent back up center like Fesko Kyrlenko.
