Warriors Interested In Tayshaun Prince and Zach Randolph

The Warriors are interested in Tayshaun Prince and Zach Randolph, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Prince and Randolph are two players that could fill voids for Golden State and might be available before next month's trade deadline.

Regardless, general manager Larry Riley insists that he likes the team's current roster.

"I don't like our record, but I like this team," Riley said. "I like that we have new owners who set expectations at the highest end. This is a fun place to be right now. We've got a chance to build something right here."

Why would they want either. Dorrell Wright is playing superior right now and is cheaper than Prince. They have David Lee already and unless Memphis will take back Biedrins for Z-Bo I dont see a trade working.

Have no idea why Memphis would try to trade Zo. He's their best player.

Why?

One reason: $$$

All owners want to win. Very few want to spend to do it.

Who is their owner? Is it Donald Sterling?

I'd be pissed if I were a Memphis fan. We're spoiled.

i'll believe it when i see it. reporters are getting antsy because there hasn't been any trades or public trade talk. no superstar hostage drama to fill up the airwaves, so we get this tripe.

put it this way: if memphis is really peddling two of its three best players around the league that hard while they hold hca in the first round near the mid point of the season, they deserve obscurity.

Too much money for a small market team makes sense. Especially since they had a nice run without Gay last season. I don't see them trading both though. They'll find someone to take one of them and then move forward from there.

wasnt that run 2 seasons ago? where rudy was out?


i totally forget, i tend to not care after lakers are eliminated and just block those bad memories out of my mind.



i was dissapointed when they couldnt work things out with OJ, now they're blowing up the whole team? like the melo era nuggets, if they blow up this team, its gonna be nothing but a fond memory

^ No I thought that was last season unless I'm mistaken.

And I thought they made a fine choice with OJ. He wasn't necessarily fitting with the team and they're doing fine without him. Meanwhile OJ is on the Dallas Mavericks who are about as bad or worse as we are.

I don't get this... Zach has been a baller since going to Memphis. I'd take him for sure.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

yeah, wtf is that about? he's gotten his behavior in line there, and he's been a good player for them. i'd say i'd take him, but with the direction the lakers have gone (MDA), i don't think he'd fit. i'm sure detroit would take him to anchor their two young bigs, and he would make a big difference there.

Grizzlies' CEO Jason Levien: We Will Not Trade Zach Randolph

Image

By Ron Higgins, Ronald Tillery
Posted February 8, 2013 at 11:12 a.m.

The Grizzlies say they will not trade Zach Randolph this season.

The team has fielded calls proposing trades for its all-star, but Griz CEO Jason Levien said he told Randolph on Thursday that he won't be dealt this season. NBA teams have been told the Grizzlies aren't looking to move the 31-year-old forward, who averages 15.7 points and 11.7 rebounds.

Randolph, speaking after the Grizzlies' Friday morning shootaround in FedExForum, said he hadn't been bothered by the trade speculation.

"I understand this is a business, and my confidence has always been the same," he said. "I try to come out every night and play my game, whether I give us rebounding, defense, whatever is needed."

Randolph, who was recently named a Western Conference All-Star reserve, was in trade talks earlier this season. However, team brass says its focus is now on rallying the troops. Memphis, struggling since trading Rudy Gay to Toronto late last month, has dropped to fifth in the Western Conference playoff race.

The Griz are only looking at ways to add another center or shooter using one of their seven trade exceptions by the Feb. 21 trade deadline. Even so, that is believed to be a 50/50 proposition.

Memphis will host the Golden State Warriors Friday night, one of three games remaining before All-Star Weekend in Houston, where Randolph makes his second career All-Star appearance.

They already shed salary. Now they want to salvage the season with what they have.

Gay > Randolph...

but its the same as always...Memphis becomes good -> sheds salary to go back to lottery. They do not want to win and thats a fact to me. If you want to win you have to keep successful players where they are.
