I read that the Nuggets are going to try to shop around both Felton and Gallinari. I think Felton would be a great fit for the Warriors. He is a true point guard and would actually try to create for other players on a consistent basis. I know we have Monta and Curry but neither of them are true PG's and I don't think this team can last too much longer with both of them playing together. I think we could shop Monta to Denver for Felton and maybe try to get Gallinari as well. I know we have a lot of 3 point shooters but this guy is also tall and can get his fair amount of rebounds. He is also a young, coveted talent and would be valuable to possibly shop around to other teams down the line. I also know that the Nuggets want to use Lawson and Affalo at their guard spots and would maybe give up Felton for a bargain price. Please let me know if this logic is way off, I'm not well versed in trade economics.
Personally I wouldn't replace Curry at PG unless we got a better PG in return or at least one that is pretty good and another great player coming with him. Denver has noone else that would do for us in any trade involving Monta or Curry, which ever way
Don't wanna stray too far off the actual topic, but let me throw this out there and it can be moved if needed. We've had a season and a half to evaluate. Do you continue with the Monta and Curry backcourt? Because to me it still looks (MOST OF THE TIME) like we have 2 shooting guards with one playing out of position. That's not taking into account the defensive liability of two players around the 6-foot mark in the backcourt. Monta still sems to be the piece that most people are willing to part with, but I gotta say and I have been a past Monta detractor that the on-the court results this year have Monta as much more valuable than Curry. Would be interested to get you guys' thoughts on this as you all really seem to have your shite together as far as keeping perspective through up and down runs with this team.
Curry looked like a real PG last season, but now seems like he has fallen into the me first attitude somewhat, at least not playing like a PG like he should. I still do think, if he is motivated and told to do so, that he'll be a great PG again, that's why I'd rather trade Monta, that and Monta has much higher value right now.
I still think trying to trade Monta for Chris Paul is the way to go, if it can be done, but even Curry and filler for Paul would be great. I mentioned such trades for Paul last season and now maybe it is more realistic
Do you not feel like the fix is in and he already intends to go to the Knicks as soon as he's free? Just has that Heatles conspiracy feel to me with 2 of 3 pieces already in place. Don't know how it works money-wise at this point.
That's a real good point and to be honest, I missed that completely. Think you have it right and that stinks for the team.
I actually think the FO should be looking to trade Curry immediately, he could really just leave for nothing later
