They don't know if Gordon resigns and they want to get rid of Caman for the best possible profit and Ellis is far more talented and valuable from Caman. I don't see any other team offering something remotely close to Ellis for him. WE wouldn't do it normally.

PG Rondo
SG Klay
SF Mcguire
PF Lee
C Caman
That is a much more defensive, hard, tall, rebounding team. Throw in Rush in the SF if you want more points and you are ok. With Klay, Udoh Tyler, Jenkins improving each year we might have a good future also.



Kaman is a free agent after this season isn't he? If so, no go, as he could just leave for nothing. For a resigned Kaman, I'd include him in a three team trade getting Monta and hopefully AB out of here. Get JRich from Orlando would be nice as well, but that trade gives the team a proper Center finally

That's debatable. But now that they hold his bird rights and can offer him more than any other team, they'll try to retain him. Bottom line is, they won't make a deal for Ellis unless Gordon full-on declares he won't resign (which won't happen). So any Ellis-to-Hornets trades are extremely unlikely.

The Warriors are reportedly after a big man at the trade deadline to bolster the team's frontline.

But it's also possible they could look for one in free agency next summer, it seems, if they don't land one before March 15.

From Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle: "The Warriors will consider signing Robin Lopez in the offseason."

Lopez will be a restricted free agent if the Suns tender him his $4 million qualifying offer for the 2012-13 season, so any offer the Warriors could potentially make to Lopez would be able to be matched by Phoenix.



Not exactly the Lopez I wanted but anyone would be an upgrade over Biedrins.

If Celtics would be so insane, again, to offer Rondo for Curry straight up, Warriors would be insane twice as much if they refused it.

Rondo just had these stats against the Knicks:
Points: 18
Assists: 20
Rebounds: 17
Steals: 1
Blocks: 1

And 4 TOs.

Those are the numbers you see from a franchise player.

I can't believe they said no. I can't believe they say they are not interested. The only thing i can think off to keep my sanity is that they now something we don't. I read he is at war with his coach at that generally he is a difficult character. That would explain why Celtics want to trade him in the first place.

#1, I don't buy that the Warriors refused a Curry-for-Rondo trade, unless there were more parts to it that would sour the deal (such as giving them David Lee for trash, as Boston has famously coveted a PF for KG's increasing decline in play). Rondo for Curry straight up? Sure, pull the trigger. But without Lee or Ellis, Rondo won't help you THAT much.

#2, Robin Lopez is bench status. If they believe Udoh can start, then I get it. If not, than its a bad deal. I believe Ekpe is an ideal bench big, who can spell either a 4 or a 5, but a starting center? I dunno if I buy THAT... So GS needs to focus on finding a legit 7-footer to start.

Yeah, i was watching that game on TV this morning... just insane. Rondo has always been a great rebounder, but he was just boxing out, and hustling like no other. And 20 dimes. Unbelievable performance.

No doubt. Easily the best defensive PG there is, arguably the best rebounding PG... If he could hit a 3, this is a guy who would be the indisputed best player in the league. You gotta wonder if that part of his game comes with age, like JKidd. Cause GODDAMN, the dude can literally do everything else.

RLopez looks like more of a defender and rebounder than his brother though and that's a nice addition to the team as a bench big if he did come here. BLopez looks more and more soft and something to stay away from

I wouldn't mind Robin Lopez as long as it doesn't take an outrageous contract to get him. I wish we had used the amnesty on Biedrins, what a waste.

Definately was a waste not getting rid of AB, but I think they had some faith that he'd get his confidence back. He's only got two more years left on his contract I think so this offseason he'd probably be valued highly as an expirer, so great in a trade

Do you believe either RLopez or Udoh can start?

After watching the last couple games, wouldn't trade Ellis unless you are getting back a legit scorer.. like Howard. No one else can create on this team, with out him we would have trouble scoring 50pts in a game. (that is if Curry is out).

I believe he'd be more serviceable than Biedrins.
