Who Would You Give Up for Biedrins?

ESPN has confirmed reports saying the Rockets are trying to acquire Warriors big man Andris Biedrins.

The two names that have popped up are Hasheem Thabeet and Jordan Hill, two people I don't have a problem giving up. I'm a big Thabeet supporter, but Biedrins gives us what we need right now: defense, rebounding, and shot blocking.

According to the Houston Comical, the Rockets have tried to package an offer around either Thabeet or Hill, but not putting both players in the same deal.

The big thing for me is that Biedrins is just 25. I say we up our offer and give them Hill, Bud, and a pick. Biedrins is the only proven center who is available. RFA's DeAndre Jordan, Marc Gasol, and Tyson Chandler are likely to re-sign with their current team.

I say we pull the trigger on this. We've stockpiled 3s and 4s, so now it's time to unload them in order to improve our depth at center.

The untouchables for me are Lowry, Patterson, Morris, Donut, and T-Will. Bud finished the year with a bang, so he probably carries some decent value. Even though the Warriors have more 2s than we do 4s, they lack a true 3 outside of Dorrell Wright. Bud's strengths are spotting up and in transition, two things the Warriors excel at.

Like I said earlier in the post, I think a package of Hill, Bud, and a pick or two should do the trick. Hill is a young, athletic power forward who I'm sure they would have some interest in.

There aren't any centers available in the next couple of years, whether in FA or the draft.

Morey needs to pull the trigger on this and up the offer, as long as it's not one the untouchable players.
