Golden State Warriors Rumors: In Addition to Andre Iguodala, Sign-And-Trade With Dwight Howard Still Possible

+Read full article

 

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

After the Golden State Warriors signed Andre Iguodala Friday, I wrote that Dwight Howard must be out of the question at this point. But, another scenario that is still a possibility, believe it or not, is a sign-and-trade with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Warriors dumped the salaries of Brandon Rush, Richard Jefferson and Andris Biedrins to the Utah Jazz to make room for the signing, which means David Lee and Andrew Bogut are still available via trade.

What the Warriors have been rumored to execute with the Lakers would be sending Bogut and Harrison Barnes in exchange for Howard. There may have to be an additional player tossed in to help even out the salaries, but it is still very much a possibility.

Only the Dallas Mavericks have been told they are officially out of the Howard sweepstakes, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Therefore, this move by Golden State could be just an opening act for what kind of grand finale they have in store.

It seemed quite odd that the Warriors jumped into these talks just within the last week or so, but now it is looking like a real possibility. If Howard joined the Warriors who already have guys like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, and of course Iguodala, they could launch themselves into championship contention pretty quickly.

Where will Howard land? Nobody knows at this point, but what we do know is that it will be either the Lakers, Warriors or Houston Rockets at this point. I have a feeling the Atlanta Hawks could be out of this one as well, but nothing official has been determined with their status yet. Regardless, Golden State is forming an incredible squad that could soon include the Dwightmare.

While introducing the team, President Obama joked that he was in the presence of one member of the greatest team in basketball history with Steve Kerr on stage. The Warriors head coach was a member of the 1995-96 Bulls team that many think of as the greatest team of all time.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.
