Anyway, TK doesn't think the Warriors have any use for Curry unless the deal were to expand, then he noted a name that caught my attention.
"...Short summary: Things can change drastically and maybe already have, but unless the Warriors get another team more intrigued (Chicago, Cleveland, Lakers or Charlotte?) by dangling one of their young players that Nelson doesn’t like (Wright, Marco Belinelli or Marcus Williams)… then, as far as I can tell, they might have to wrangle something in a tough trade environment..."I noticed Belinelli was a DNP last night, he'd fit in perfectly with D'Antoni and Danilo Gallinari, so maybe a Curry/ Nate swap for Marco and Harrington could work.
That sound you hear is the trade winds a blowin', so we'll run with it for now.
As I said before, I think Curry could fit well with Golden State along side Andres Biedrins, a shot-blocking, rebounding force. I've long-considered Curry to be a 4, and if he has help he can be effective.
I'm not even sure a Curry and Collins for Harrington deal gets it done, although wouldn't it be nice to call Ewing Jr's agent and have an open roster spot?
With that said, kudos to TKB gym rat Greg who sent me a Nate and Curry for Al Harrington and Marcus Williams deal. This is an interesting one on plenty of levels.
First off, the team is not married to Nate, as seen by refusing to extend him. So does it make sense to use him as a chip to unload Curry's deal and get back Harrington?
Remember, the Knicks tried moving David Lee on draft night, and sources told TKB that Lee killed the deal because he wouldn't sign there long term. Does Nate use the same leverage?
Well, with Monta Ellis on the shelf for a while, the team needs guard help and Nate would be a great option for Nellie who would love to get rid of two malcontents unhappy players. I know Williams has issues, but to put up with him for a year and save the $30-35 million that Nate should get, the deal seems to make sense.
Nate is from the Northwest, he'd start and get paid, so why would he object?
I like Nate (we share the same middle name), but it's possible that the moves by Donnie to keep Anthony Roberson, and not trade Zach Randolph could have been to monitor the Harrington situation the whole time. It may not be the most popular move with the fans, but it makes financial sense and we've seen Walsh go that route before. Plus he loves Harrington.
This could get interesting.
