Warriors Plan B

The Golden State Warriors have been rumored all summer to be in the Kevin Love sweepstakes. But due to their reluctance to include their up and coming superstar, Klay Thompson the Warriors gave up on their pursuit of Kevin Love. If they are still in search of a stretch 4 power forward, I think they need to go out and acquire Ryan Anderson from the New Orleans Pelicans. Using ESPNS trade machine, I’ve come up with a scenario where the Warriors can acquire Anderson. This trade will be involving the Warriors, Pelicans, and Kings.

Warriors

Ryan Anderson 2yrs at 8.5million

New Orleans Pelicans

Jason Terry 1yr 5.9million

Carl Landry 3yrs 6.5million

Sacramento Kings

David Lee 2yrs 15.0million

I like this trade because the Kings get a All Star caliber PF in David Lee, Warriors get their stretch four PF in Ryan Anderson, and the Pelicans add depth in Carl Landry. Also, if the Pelicans don’t want to keep Jason Terry they can always buy him out, and maybe even trade him.

I’m not sure if this trade happens, but it’s something to keep an eye on.
