The Golden State Warriors are just one day away from the NBA Draft, meaning the scuttlebutt is flying around like a swarm of locusts, engulfing people in their tittle-tattle and hearsay.
Here's another one for the gossip mill, reported by ESPN"s Chris Broussard
Lots of teams calling Denver to trade for Nuggets' young players. 1of several moves being discussed: Wil Chandler to G State for 7th pick— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 27, 2012
This deal is not cap-ready as is, as a player such as Dorrell Wright woud have to be thrown in the mix. Nevertheless, the W's would be ill-suited to give up such a high draft pick this year, even though there aren't many home-run selections aside from Anthony Davis. And Wilson Chandler is certainly not a home run either.
I think Tim Kawakami has the right perspsctive on all of this:
Whatever happens, this is what Joe Lacob wants: Warriors are talking with everybody. Under Cohan/Rowell, they barely talked to themselves.— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) June 27, 2012
Yup. Just because two teams are talking, doesn't mean that chat will lead to anything.
Important reminder.RT @GSWFastBreak Rule for all Ws rumors: team unlikely to deal until picks 1-6 made.— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) June 27, 2012
Oh, yeah, almost forgot about that too. Guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow.
