NBA Trade Rumors 2012: Golden State Warriors Interested In Andre Iguodala, Danny Granger, Nic Batum, Rudy Gay

The Golden State Warriors have four draft picks, and they're not likely to hold onto all of them. Golden State has some upgrading they need to do with their squad, and it's not likely they'll find all the solutions they need with this shallow draft class.

So it makes sense to trade for some talent. Marcus Thompson II of the Contra Costa Times has this report.

Golden State has long since had interest in Philadelphia's Andre Iguodala, who is exactly the playmaking athlete the Warriors need at small forward. Other small forwards high on their list, according to league sources, are Portland's Nick Batum, Indiana's Danny Granger and Memphis' Rudy Gay.

Getting any of these players would greatly upgrade Golden State at the three position, a historic spot of weakness for the Warriors. You figure that the number seven pick and maybe one or two of the other picks would be solid enough for the Warriors to land the players they want, especially considering that some of these players might be shopped around.
