[b]He could Fit nice with the Warriors

What are your thoughts?
He provides scoring, he can jump out the gym, he plays 1 or 2, and he can play D.

Don Nelson can work with Ego's

Baron
Monta
Jack
Al
Beans

Steve francis
Azubke
Barnes
marco
etc.

Francis hasn't done anything to be seen as a good player this season, nothing at al. He should have become the starting PG in that Houston team and hasn't. Looks like he has lost heart and won't get back to being the real good player he was the last time he was in Houston. He is not a great distributor, alright but not a great one and to be honest, there are better fits with less baggage

he's been in the league 10 years
avg 18 pts 5 reb 6 assists for his career

and would have a chance to reemerge as a good player in the league under don nelson and the free flowing, dynamic offense of the warriors

he wouldnt be my first pick, but i think are team would be explosive with him

Most of those stats were built when he was young. He just isnt the player he once was.

That and who would have to be traded for him. If it is a future 1st rounder, like next drafts (as the team will likely be getting a late draft pick), then maybe, I'd prefer 2nd rounder

he's getting the vet's minimum right now cuz of the buyout from portland. and i honestly believe that francis is still good, its just that he doesnt fit in rick adelman's system. im not saying he would fit here, but you never know. he hasnt done anything this year to prove that he is still good, but only cuz he hasnt gotten the time. the small amount of minutes he's gotten, he tries too hard to prove that he should stay on the court and over thinks it cuz he wants to prove to adelman that he belongs out there. i mean really, he's only played in 10 games. i think if he goes to a team that would use him and actually attempt to work him into the team then he can do well

Francis is done. I wouldn't touch him unless he was the only player available in the entire NBA and my team did have any point guards. Warriors have great chemistry and don't need a locker room cancer like Francis to mess it up.

I don't know what happens with him, but if he can't beat Rafer Alston in Houston (or Aaron Brooks for the backup spot), it must be because he's not the player he once was.

Francis is a cancer for any team. He doesn't play defense, hes not a good shooter, and hes a cry baby.
Basketball would be depressing without the warriors

I wouldn't want Franchise on this team...I really can't imagine him in the league much longer, unless he plays for nothing
