We couldn't really afford Barnes or Thompson, plus they will need those guys for the sign and trade... but I'd happily take that $9 million dollar expiring contract that Beidrins has and a 2015 first rounder... what does GSW want back? Cash considerations or something.
I haven't a clue as to what they want back, nothing maybe since they need to clear all of the cap space to afford Howard. The reason they are doing this is so that they don't have to do a sign and trade with LA. So if it takes giving up one of the guys for Howard then it's a good move if Howard does indeed sign with them.... If not = ouch.
