With Atlanta overloaded at the SF spot even before they drafted Marvin Williams, Harrington can be the odd man out. His contract is up at the end of the year and the Hawks will likely try to get something for him instead of losing him with nothing to show for it. They need size so either a PF or C. Possibly even a PG so Joe Johnson can slide into his more natural SG spot with Smith moving to the 3.

Give up Troy Murphy and Derek Fisher for Harrington, Lue, and Childress.

Line up:

PG Davis, Ellis, Lue
SG Richardson, Pietrus, Cheaney
SF Harrington, Dunleavy, Childress
PF Diogu, Cabarkapa, Taft
C Foyle, Biedrins, Taft

Harrington's contract is up and if wants to go elsewhere, then thats $6M that we have free to re-sign Mikael to a long term contract. If he decides to stay, then you find away to move Pietrus or Dunleavy at season's end.

I like Harrington, but he'll be a free agent at the end of the season. If we give up Murph for him and he leaves (a very real possibility), we would be really thin up front.

Also, why not make a trade straight up for him?, I don't really like Childress and Lue...

Murphy for Harrington doesn't solve anything. They are both completely equal (except Harrington may take off when his contract's up). Sounds like the lesser risk would be with Murphy (and when there's equal reward, the risk is all that matters).

Harrington doesn't seem to give anymore than Murphy does so this is not an upgrade at all, if anything the team loses height

Harrington's contract expiring isn't a bad thing. Remember that Cohan is a cheap bastard and as long as one of these long term contracts (Dunleavy, Murphy, Fisher, or Foyle) are still on the books after the season is over, then re-signing Mikael will be impossible. Harrington would be a win-win situation either way. If he leaves, them Pietrus steps back into the starting SF with a new long term contract. Harrington decides to re-sign at a good price, then the Warriors have an athletic SF who can slide over to the PF spot as well. Think Antawn Jamison. Harrington is a true SF with Mikael being a 2 whereas Al would give us a better rebounding unit. If they can find away to rid of Fisher AND Murphy, like in my idea, then they can re-sign Pietrus as well.

Unless Mickael comes out and starts playing like a superstar (something so far, in the 1st half of the Grizzley's game, doesn't look likely), then he's not worth throwing Murphy away over. If we can get Foyle or Dunleavy's contract off the boat, then that's one thing. Murphy's more valueable than Pietrus. Mickael scores, but we have a lot of weapons there. Murphy rebounds... and we don't have a lot of weapons there.

People seem so eagr to throw Murphy away but the rebounding aspect is something that is weak with the team. Murphy is still very valuable and Diogu has to show more (needs the court time ofcourse) to prove that he is a very good replacement. One bad roster move and the team could really go backwards

But false. Quite the opposite. Foyle, Fish, Murph, Dun, Antawn Jamison ... all those players got fat contracts from the Warriors.

Besides the Knicks, only championship-caliber teams surround maximum contract players with more high contracts. Hell, I don't even think Detroit's over the limit, and they're the best team in the league.

Yes, that's true... but signing talent until you're 20 million over the cap is something that not many teams are willing to do...

Actually, the Warriors are a better rebounding team WITHOUT Murphy. How can I make such a statement like that? Well, the numbers don't like.

With Murphy in the game:

Opponent: 43.35 rpg
Warriors: 41.13 rpg

Games where Troy was Missing:

Opponent: 43.3 rpg
Warriors: 43.00 rpg

the thing is though... with troy rebounding the guards doesnt have to help out and instead can leak out for fast break...
