1/23 NBA Rumors: Scope on Warriors

January 23rd 2011 14:31
Allen Iverson isn't going to retire after a recent injury. In fact, AI plans to keep on playing for a few more seasons. He plans to return after his recent calf injury in four to six weeks. Co-Owner Joe Lacob loves Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry, but he would trade one of them if they got a good enough deal. Lacob really wants the Warriors to acquire a superstar.

The Warriors are 12th in the West. Their problem is that they have no frontcourt depth. Lee and Biedrins are a great tandem, but Gadzuric and Amundson give them absolutely no depth. They don't have good depth all around. They have four quality/star players, but they only have one solid player- Dorell Wright- besides those guys. Wright is the starting small forward, so the Warriors really don't have a solid backup. You need depth in this league. Only a team with 3 superstars like the Heat can get away with a lack of depth.

The Clippers- most namely GM Neil Olshey- want to keep Blake Griffin forever. He is under contract until 2014, and his youth and athleticism have the front office hooked. Carmelo Anthony's camp want the Chicago Bulls to actively participate in trade talks. This seems like desperation to me, and the realization- finally- that Anthony isn't that huge of a commodity as his agents and the media make him out to be.

Troy Murphy was the player that was most talked about in a possible Melo to the Nets trade. The Nets have probably angered him by doing this, and Murphy has requested a trade. This puts the Nets in a difficult situation. They are so terrible that losing a solid player will cut them deep. This is what happens when you make heavy trade talks. Somebody gets mad. The Nuggets have also made Chauncey Billups put his guard up about more potential trade talks in the future involving him.

Iverson should retire. He can't do the things that made him successful any longer.

I really wish the Carmelo trade would happen already. I don't care where he goes, I just don't want ESPN to keep reporting something every hour on it.
