GSW wants their pick back.

Sometime between getting booed by his fans and now, Joe Lacob (GSW owner) said that they "have had discussions with Utah on getting their 2012 1st rounder back." I'm sure these discussions were had at the trade deadline, but have obviously been shelved for the time being, and I would assume would pick back up at the draft (if we get the pick). I still think it's going to be close on whether or not we get their pick. Everyone is clamoring that with the Monta trade that there's no way we'll get their pick, but there are some pretty awful teams below them, and they'll most likely be tanking as well.

Margo's trade idea:

Send to GSW: Either Al or Paul (will be tough now that they have Bogut/Lee) + their pick

For: Curry + Biedrins + unprotected future 1st rounder

I don't know about the unprotected future 1st rounder, but I read a rumor that the Warriors would've preferred to deal Curry. If that's true, the Jazz ****ing blew it.

Well let's wait and see if we get their pick, and what we get with that pick before we jump to that conclusion. Anyone who trades for Curry is taking a huge risk with his glass ankle. I'd hate to see the jazz trade for him and pull a Grant Hill.

The only established players the Jazz can trade are increasingly superfluous bigs. The Warriors went out and grabbed Andrew Bogut and David Lee in the last two seasons, so the dynamic that would have made sense no longer makes sense. But in the universe where you might be able to trade Jefferson for Curry and crap, you make that trade quick and with no regrets. If Curry's ankle ends up pushing him out of the NBA, the Jazz haven't lost anything significant in the longterm because Jefferson is not going to be - or shouldn't be - in the longterm plan anyway.

Now that GS has those guys, I don't know why or how these two teams make a significant trade.

Now, if we're talking about BEFORE The Warriors traded one of their superfluous and overrated perimeter players, EVERYTHING is different. If Curry was more available than Ellis, it would've taken LESS than trading an above-average center that is very frequently injured and a headcase on a bad contract. That's ****ing blowing it if the rumor I read was true.

We'll see how this works out. I'd love to know the validity of this, but I probably never will. My impression is that unless Curry has actually torn any ligaments, there isn't a lot to be concerned with moving forward.

Either way, I just don't see the Warriors trading him unless they're getting a similar player back. The Jazz don't have one - let alone extra - of those players. This is just me dwelling on spilled milk.

I want to see how the owner responds to being booed. Mega millionaires have big time egos and big time egos cause guys to do big time stupid things. He may decide to give the fans something real to boo about and tank harder (although that may be difficult because the current group of tankers he has assembled is 1-4)

On the other hand he might go against all rationale, push Steph and Bogut to come back early and fight just to win a few home games.
