Andrew Bogut = Solution to center?




http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=k6jc8rc

We send: Sully, Bass, Fab, Crawford, and a filler (I used Shavlik, I'm not sure when we can use Faverani or other like players in a trade, I know that Shav is gone)

We receive: Andrew Bogut.

The Warriors already have David Lee at center so they can afford to trade Bogut, who came back from an injury for a decent showing in the playoffs. His contract (14M) is expiring so the Warriors may just want to hold on to that. BUT since they had such an exciting playoffs they might just want to get better right now. In this trade they receive a large upgrade at the power forward position which could prove to be a key piece for them. I hate to see Sully go, but Olynyk's showing some promise which makes him more expendable. Bass's contract is pretty reasonable and his jump shooting + defense will help the Warriors. He really did a nice job on Carmelo in the playoffs which team's must have noticed. If the Warriors insisted on Brooks instead of Crawford then I hang up the phone. I really (want to) like Brooks game and I can picture him averaging 13-14 a game on 45% shooting this year.

The Celtics gamble on Bogut shaking the injury bug and we receive the best player in the trade. Sully's back just makes me nervous, even though I really do like the guy and am a pretty big supporter/fan of his. We really freakin' need a center.
