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.

Pelicans Unveil Their New Jerseys

With the help of Ryan Anderson, Anthony Davis, Jason Smith, and Jrue Holiday the New Orleans Pelicans unveiled their new jerseys today. This is a new era for New Orleans basketball they said bye bye to the Hornets name and hello to the new name, Pelicans. They had a very successful off-season with the acquisitions of Jrue Holiday, and Tyreke Evans the Pelicans will compete in the tough Western Conference for a playoff spot. If this team clicks, and stays healthy (I’m looking at you Eric Gordon) look out. They will be very exciting team to watch this year. I’m not really feeling the new look, but they can always change it in a couple of years.
