How about this crazy idea? What if the Warriors were to trade Mile Dunleavy to the Clippers for their #1 pick next year (the Clips might do it since it won't be a lottery)? Then after unloading Dunleavy and his big salary (assuming the Clips can afford it), sign Bonzi Wells? If they have to maybe they can do a three-way trade so that the Clips could move Magloire who it appears they want to move. I'm not saying that the Warriors should do this, I just wonder what some of you think. If doable, would this make the Warriors better seeing that they lost out on Harrington? What is you opinion on this? Sort of an interesting thought.

Yeah, but Pietrus is really a 2. Bonzi is a legitimate 3. Don't you think he'd be an ugrade from Dunleavy? Someone had pointed out how Pietrus  struggled when he played 3 last year. He doesn't have the strength that Bonzi does unless he's bulked up this year.

It may be a bad idea but not because of Richardson. Bonzi would play 3.

Not talking about playing him at 2 although he could backup Richardson but I don't think he's a 2. Does not have the ballhandling skills for that position in my opinion.

I like Dunleavy and I think he has a lot of potential but I agree the fans were really all over him last year and I think it might be better for him and for the Warriors if he got moved. I think that Bonzi would be a good replacement and if they got a number one pick, it might be a smart move for the Warriors. I don't think they are going to be able to upgrade too easily with their overabundance of big men and limited talent available.

Good luck with the L.A. Clipper connection, because that is your only realistic hope of dumping Dunleavey.  The day GS resigned him was the day I knew the Warriors were screwed.

Why not do it then? The Clippers have enough cap room to take on Dunleavy and would only be risking a #1 pick. Picking up Bonzi probably would put the Warriors only slightly more over the cap but it would at least satisfy all the Dunleavy haters. If they chose not sign Bonzi, they would have an extra #1 for next year which they could use if they decide to rebuld (which I don't approve of) or they could bundle in a trade should they be able to maek a deal later. I think Nelson is going to probably want to keep Dunleavy but we'll see. If they do want to move him, that's the move I think they should consider at this point because as you say, the Clippers are the only ones who would be likely willing to do it.

No, he's not. I predict he'll average at least 15 points per game under Nelson this season. He's a Nelson type of guy, big, white and versatile (can play 4 different positions).
