For me it's either get a mediocre center who can block shots or do nothing.What make JaVale the best shot blocking Medicre center for the Warriors is his famiarity with playing with sone of our guys and familiarity with our system. Also my eyes and per minute stats say JaVale may be a bit better than medicre if you ignore him not playing a lot of minutes.

Sure try to swindle an all star out of some team but is that likely to happen? If we can steal Towns because of Ben Simmons then great.

If we have a weakness, I think it is rim protection unless Wiseman can change that.

If Klay returns at 90% we have our second option and Wiggins and Poole are good 3rd and 4th options. I am not to worried about offense.

Warriors are playing crisp ball, above their talent level. Thank you Steve Kerr and Draymond. And thank Curry for warping defenses.
Is a shot blocker too much to ask for? Actually we have some kid in Santa Cruz who can block shots but maybe that is all he can do and he is not on the Warriors Roster.


Honestly I do not know what you are rambling about.

You want a rim protector? Fine.

Just stop trying to convince me that we should give our division rival, who just went to the finals, a top 7 pick who's talent was considered a steal, in a deep draft, AND lightly protected 1st, for a guy we could have just used our MLE on but decided he was not worth it.

Every trade for a big name involves Wiggins for salary. I value Wiggins. Wiggins fits. If Wiseman can play well this team is complete and probably should not make any trades.

I sort of like signing Bismark Biyombo but who do we cut? If after a month of playing Wiseman still looks confused on defense signing Biyombo will sound even better to me.
Who do you cut?

Warriors fans regularly seem to overvalue McGee.

On the NBA front it's funny that the Sixers floated in the press Simmons for Harden :)

Except for one year (2019 with the Lakers) that JaVale averaged 2 blocks a game, he's been hovering around a little over one per game for years.

Wiseman, in his confused and incomplete rookie year, averaged about one also (.9).

There's a reason that JaVale hasn't been a starting center for years, and it's probably the same reason that Kerr didn't play him much when he was here. Pachulia was much smarter and did a much better job of the actual inside work, blocking out, putting a body on people, etc. Not to mention that he could score occasionally on something other than lobs.

Wiseman can already do what JaVale does. Even if he can't do anything else, his size is going to protect the rim when he's playing again, and he can certainly catch lobs, too -- JaVale's other skill. There is literally no good reason to even think about trying to get McGee.

I could see Mcgee coming in if we dealt Wiseman and Looney for a big upgrade Sabonis or Turner-esque, which would then leave us thin at the position. But even then it would just be a depth move for minimal assets.

I love Sabonis, but I don't know that I would say Wiseman and Looney for Sabonis or Turner would be a BIG upgrade.

LOL on Javale...JW will give us everything that you can expect of Javale...an occasional dunk, some shots altered or blocked and general cluelessness while on the floor. At least we can hope for JW to progress beyond that.

Javale's been playing well for the Suns, had a good game last night, scored more than Ayton.

Suns won't get rid of him. He's not making much and he's insurance for Ayton because of his contract status.

If they do move him, they won't trade them to the Warriors or probably any WC team.

Then again, Sarver is cheap so maybe there will be a buyout. But the Suns are playing very well -- 11 straight wins -- so they're not making changes.

Should be interesting matchups against them.

I was thinking about the title of this thread, which is funny. But the crazy thing is right now we really don't even have any bad players. There's literally not one player I'm pining to get rid of. That's astounding. I can't remember that ever being the case, even when we were winning championships. There's always been an Anderson Varejao or Nick Young or Jordan Bell who would infuriate you on a nightly basis. This year even the likes of Chris Chiozza are making contributions.

Good point. We've lucked out/done our homework on this year's additions. Can you imagine trying to beat anyone last year, even Detroit, without Steph, Draymond, Klay, and two key subs?

Yep. Remember the Toronto game last year without Steph & Draymond? -53
