Warriors Need...

NBA has posted a list of Western Conference team needs. Here's what they have for the Warriors:

(Frontcourt help, possible SF).

Optimism hasn’t often been synonymous with the Golden State Warriors. But for the first time in ages, things are looking up in Oakland. The gutsy move for oft-injured superstar Baron Davis turned the Warriors into one of the most electrifying spoilers in the league. Golden State features an exciting supporting cast of Jason Richardson, Troy Murphy, Mickael Pietrus, Mike Dunleavy, and Derek Fisher around Davis. Still, this team needs at least one more athletic bigman before they can start thinking playoffs. And no, Adonal Foyle doesn’t count, no matter how many millions he's being paid. Golden State is rumored to have a promise with Channing Frye at the #9 spot, which would give them a highly-skilled low post scorer and athletic shot blocker. Last year’s lottery pick, Andris Biendris, is still another year away from becoming a major contributor. Also, they have to determine what to do with Mike Dunleavy. He’s been a mild disappointment thus far, but has shown enough flashes of what made him the #3 overall pick to keep people’s interest. His contract ends after next season, so look for him to be the center of countless trade rumors if they opt not to resign him. The big rumor gaining steam is a deal to the Clippers for Chris Wilcox.
