2011 NBA Trade Rumors: Landry Fields-type Player On Warriors Radar, Wishful Thinking

New, 1 comment

According to San Jose Mercury’s Tim Kawakami and CSN’s Matt Steinmetz, the Warriors are looking for a 2-guard in the mold of Landry Fields. Both report that the Warriors franchise are kicking themselves in the butt right now for not drafting him if they actually had the opportunity. Could of, would of, should of. Hindsight is always 20-20 isn’t it? With the Warriors draft history, it should actually be foresight given how fans have detected blunders right when they happen.

Here’s what Steinmetz had to say about it:

Well, Warriors are trying to get some draft picks because they’ve moved some in recent years — like 2012 and 2013 second-rounders as part of Lee deal. They’ve also had some success in the second round before with Monta Ellis.

But I’ll say this — I think it’s funny the way all of a sudden it’s just accepted as fact that the Warriiors could have/would have drafted Landry Fields if they had not moved last year’s second-round pick.

I mean, I know Lacob said he liked Fields, but do Warriors really want to play that game?

With that said, why isn’t the Warriors brass complaining about blown draft picks of the past. Like “Damn, we needed a big man, why did we draft Patrick O’Bryant?” Anyway, 2-guards seem to be an expendable bunch, but who else is available?
