OAKLAND (Bleacher Report) – The Warriors are nowhere near being on the verge of a title, they’ve been near the bottom of the league for most of the last decade, topping 40 wins just twice, and it’s crazy to think that anyone running the Warriors has the guile to trade for Dwight Howard and flip him after just a few months.
Basically, if Golden State were to trade for Dwight Howard, they would have to give up at least three out of four of Andrew Bogut, David Lee, Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes (it would be assumed that they’re trying to pair him with Steph Curry to convince him to stay beyond next season), leaving them with one of those four guys, Richard Jefferson, Brandon Rush, Dorell Wright and Hedo Turkoglu, whose contract they would have to take back in the deal.
