Ron Artest to the Lakers
Rasheed Wallace to the Celtics.
Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva to the Pistons.
Zach Randolph to the Grizzlies.
Shaq to the Cavaliers.
There seems to be a lot of activity going on and none of it involving the Warriors. Is that good or bad? Should the Warriors have been involved for any of these players, or is it good that they are standing back and watching how things play out?
Not that they aren’t making phone calls, or even offers (the new regime is apparently as hush as the previous one about this stuff), but none of the current moves have seemed out of their jurisdiction. They certainly could have gotten Zach Randolph. They could have made an offer to Rasheed Wallace, who is getting the mid-level.
One would have to figure the players being talked about now are the best of what’s out there, considering they are getting the offers first. Since the Warriors aren’t likely going to get anything much better — Stoudemire talks have gone stale, Bosh is out as he plans to join LeBron in 2010, Boozer is staying in Utah — should they be looking to get any of these guys? Or is going for the Boguts of the league later on in the summer, or sticking with what they have, a better option than jumping in now?
