With the 2012 NBA Draft a little more than a day away, NBA rumors are picking up steam in the last couple of hours. The newest ones has the Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors talking trade with Wilson Chandler going to the Warriors in exchange for the 7th pick in the draft. I would imagine Denver takes back a bad contract in that exchange.
I love this move for the Nuggets but I am not so sure how this works out for the Warriors. Then again, name the last logical move the Warriors made. You would be hard pressed to come up with one. Chandler is a very solid player, but I am not sure you give up the 7th pick for him. You could get a very solid player there for a lot cheaper than Chandler.
Unfortunately, Golden State is stuck in a bad spot. They have some albatross contracts as they try to rebuild their roster. Adding Chandler would be good if they could ship out Richard Jefferson with that pick. If they simply do the trade straight up, I would question the intelligence level of the Warriors brass.
More NBA rumors like this are going to pop up in the next 12 hours or so. I think once a trade or two goes through, it will open the flood gates for everyone else. There are a ton of moves out there to be made and many teams are trying to get up into the lottery.
