Jeremy Lin Helping Warriors, Possibly, Without Playing

The Warriors questionable point guard position, particularly around Jeremy Lin's contributions (or lacktherof), at times begin to look like the woeful 49ers quarterback conundrum of the last half decade starring Alex Smith. Granted, this might be a stretch. But the on-going investment in Jeremy Lin is raising some questionable roster moves that might lead to the loss of sporadically effective, Rodney Carney.

The reason for waiving him, at least as Larry Riley told Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay Area, is to open up the possibility for more trade maneuvering:

What Riley is likely weighing is whether it's more beneficial to waive Carney so that the Warriors would reduce their roster size to 14. That would give them flexibility if it came to making a 2-for-1 or 3-for-2 trade.

If the Warriors are indeed planning on making moves, I'm all for this.  Lin, who David Fucillo mentioned yesterday, has been lighting up the d-league in limited minutes. But if losing Carney, by bringing Lin up, means bolstering the roster, the Warriors need to do this, especially in light of all Warriors competitors making monster moves of late.
