    This is still pending Lebron's decision tonight.

    Yep. Only way the Warriors can get him is in a SNT, rumor is that Randolph would be heading to NY.

    How so? If he decides he wants to go, he's gone. LeBron has nothing to do with the situation whatsoever unless the Warriors need more cap space.

    Anyone think this move is good enough to help them make a push at San Antonio's playoff spot?

    It has everything to do with the situation. GSW has only a couple million in cap room and would be FORCED to trade with NY for Lee, if NY says no then no Lee for the Warriors.

    no, they gave him a one year contract last summer, but the warriors don't have the cap space to give him all that money

    Lee for 65 million is a bargain. Statistically the guy is on the same level as Stoudemire but 35 million cheaper, younger and without the injury issues. In a season of ridiculous idiotic spending(see Outlaw, Salmons and more), Lee is a true bargain.


    Whether or not he'll be a good fit with the Warriors is something else altogether but I don't see the issue here.

    I don't believe GS has the cap space to sign Lee outright, that's why they want to trade with the Knicks to be able to afford him. If LeBron signs with New York, then New York renounces his rights and he becomes and unrestricted FA and then he can do whatever he wants.

    Gotcha. I assumed GS had a crapload of cap space for some reason, oops. Good young nucleus in GS right now although I'd like to see them send Monta Ellis packing for some more assets.

    If you read all the conditions of Salmon's contract, you would realize that was a very smart sign by the Bucks considering how much he impacted that team once he was traded there last season.
