Draft Day Special Coverage 11

A rumored trade.  The Warriors would send Jason Richardson to the Bobcats for first round pick Brandan Wright, even though Richardson did not go to UNC.  

Stephen A. Smith called this trade 'stupid' (for Charlotte) about a hundred times.  Really?  You have a chance to get a guy who has averaged 20 points in the NBA for a guy who has never played a minute in the NBA, and that's stupid?  I dunno.

The Warriors have some cap troubles looming.  Getting rid of Richardson's contract helps with that, and maybe lets Monta Ellis play the 2.  But this team was unbelievably successful with Baron Davis, Stephen Jackson, Al Harrington and Jason Richardson together.  Nelly loves to wheel and deal, but wouldn't you be tempted to keep that nucleus together for a full season?
