Have to get rid of these contracts if you are the Warriors to have any shot at giving Dwight Howard the max deal. Mark Jackson gave a good sermon (not about condoms) to Dwight Howard, that got Howard intrigued about possibility of going to Golden State.
According to ESPN, it isn’t impossible to get rid of these contracts, but it won’t be easy.
The Warriors have three huge expiring contracts in Andrew Bogut ($14 million), Richard Jefferson ($11 million) and Andris Biedrins ($9 million). According to sources, they have tried to unload all three players this week to teams with cap room. Yet, Golden State likely would have to be willing to add assets to any potential deals to get teams interested. Sources say the Warriors have been willing to attach a future first-round pick to move one of their bad contracts since last February’s trade deadline, but potential partners tend to ask for prized youngsters such as Harrison Barnes or Klay Thompson — two of the more attractive young players in the league — when the subject of absorbing one of the Warriors’ big contracts is broached.
We are still waiting on Howard to make his decision.
