Earlier today, we heard from ESPN.com's Chris Broussard that the Nuggets and Warriors had discussed the possibility of a trade that would send the No. 7 pick to Denver and Wilson Chandler to Golden State. Broussard is back with more Warriors info this afternoon, tweeting that the team is eyeing other small forwards besides Chandler, including Rudy Gay, Andre Iguodala, and Marvin Williams. No deals are imminent, according to Broussard, but the Warriors are a good bet to be active either today or tomorrow. Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group has a few more Warriors items, so let's check those out:
- The Warriors do like Chandler, but may not believe he's worth the seventh overall pick, says Thompson. Golden State would want Denver to take on a bad contract like Richard Jefferson's or Andris Biedrins' in order for the deal to work.
- If Andre Drummond is available when the Warriors pick at No. 7, expect Golden State to call up the Rockets to try to work out a deal. The Warriors don't have nearly the same interest in Drummond as Houston does, though some members of Golden State's front office would be willing to roll the dice on the UConn big man.
- The Warriors have also spoken to Milwaukee about trading down to No. 12. A recent report suggested a swap of Luc Mbah a Moute and the 12th pick for the 7th pick, but Thompson thinks the Warriors are more likely to try to reacquire Ekpe Udoh. [Update: Thompson corrects himself in a tweet, noting that the Warriors are ineligible to reacquire Udoh this season.]
- Thompson tweets that rival teams keep inquiring about the availability of Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry, but that GM Bob Myers isn't interested in trading either player. Thompson is the most unmovable Warriors at the moment, according to the Bay Area News Group scribe.
- Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News adds, via Twitter, that the Warriors appear to be "really trying" to move Dorell Wright.
