“If you were the Warriors would you do this trade: Gerald Green, Theo Ratliff, Ryan Gomes, Wally Szczerbiak and the Celtics #1 for Adonal Foyle, Monta Ellis, Jason Richardson, Al Harrington?” – Joseph Campbell

No way. The Warriors would become Celtics East, which wouldn’t be good. Green is not that impressive to me. Gomes is solid, and Wally is way too injury prone and one dimensional. The only advantage is that the Warriors would get rid of Foyle’s contract, and get an expiring one in Ratliff.
This deal makes them even younger, and that’s not what they need. They need to get more experience. What this deal does, in essence, is start the Warriors over from scratch with some cap space wiggle room. But that won’t help because free agents won’t come until they win consistently. Right now, they are a piece or two away. Starting from scratch wouldn’t be ideal in my eyes.
