"Look for the Golden State Warriors to pursue Milwaukee Bucks forward Yi Jianlian strongly in the coming weeks. During last year's draft, the Warriors agreed to trade Jason Richardson to the Charlotte Bobcats for the No. 8 pick, with the hope that Yi would fall to the Bobcats at that spot.

The team was shocked that the Bucks, for whom Yi refused to work out, took him at No. 6. The Bobcats took Brandan Wright and traded him to Golden State. While Wright played well for the Warriors toward the end of the season, they still covet Yi, according to sources.

If the Warriors were to offer Wright and the No. 14 pick for Yi, that might be too much for the Bucks to pass on. The team is in rebuilding mode and might be ready to accept a two-for-one deal". ESPN

# 1 that is too much for Yi, in my opinion

# 2 why would they give up on Brandan, he seems to be a good fit both athletically and mentally

I hope they don't do this!

Not a good trade for now. Maybe in the near future, we don't know enough, and why throw in a number 1 pick?

Haven't seen Broe post in a while either!

brandan wright alone is too much for yi. lets trade the 14th pick for ramon sessions. when he got time in april (10 games) he averaged double digit assists and points with a good fg% and 2 steals per game. or sign n trade pietrus for sessions. they need a SF...that way we can keep our pick and get a good backup point guard.

Not really. Same old around here. Congrats on the house. I'd take Yi and a couple of their future first-rounders for BWright if someone held a gun to my head. Maybe

I'm not liking this idea. Not one bit.
