Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay Area is reporting that the Warriors are one of a handful of teams interested in trying to work a sign-and-trade deal with the Knicks to acquire power forward David Lee. The rumored addition of Amare Stoudemire would make the five year veteran expendable.
Any such deal would include one (or more) of Monta Ellis, Anthony Randolph, or Andris Biedrins. There are of course plenty of questions surrounding Lee. Steinmetz mentioned a few of them:
However, the questions about Lee are not dissimilar than the questions about Ellis. How meaningful are his numbers given his team’s lack of success? Why doesn’t Lee help the Knicks win more games? How much do Lee’s numbers impact a game?
