The Warriors need a place to send guard Jamal Crawford, right? How about this trade:
Crawford to Portland for C Joel Pryzbillla and PG Steve Blake.
Portland needs a help in the backcourt for Brandon Roy, who is Crawford’s best friend, BTW. They maybe interested. Pryzbilla is getting $6.857 million next season and he has a player option for 2010-11 ($7.4 million). Blake has one year left at $4.9 million.
Plus, after pulling this off, the Warriors can afford to ship Andris Biedrins and Brandan Wright to Toronto for Chris Bosh. Golden State would have Turiaf and Pryzbilla as their centers. That ain’t half bad. Plus they’d be much better at the PF position.
I’d do this. If Toronto passes, you should still be able to make a move somewhere.
