Warriors willing to give up a lot to get Howard
The Golden State Warriors are out to get their man – and that man could be Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard. The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting the Warriors GM Larry Riley has his sights on a select number of frontcourt players and that Howard is at the top of the list. Golden State believes it can sway Orlando into trading Howard while maintaining its picks in upcoming NBA Drafts. “We’ve been aggressively pursuing a number of big people who would help us. We’ll stay right on top of anything we can do to bring an effective big man into our organization,” Riley, who can’t mention specific players due to NBA rules, told reporters. “We would give up a lot to get somebody like that. Joe Lacob’s whole process since he’s taken over has been to be very aggressive. I would say that we have the likelihood of being more aggressive than we might have been a few years ago.”Rumored packages would include sending David Lee and Monta Ellis to the Magic along with another player in exchange for Howard and Glen Davis.
