#NBArank – Warriors Edition

For the past couple of weeks, ESPN has been running a pretty cool countdown where they rank all 500 players in the NBA and count them down via Twitter (and also post it on ESPN.com).

The Dubs’ Dwight Howard Trade Connection

The Dwight Howard "Indecision" saga is finally over. The six-time All-Star is headed West to the Lakers, teaming up with Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Pau Gasol and the artist formerly known as Ron Artest. With four teams involved in the blockbuster trade, it is easy for the rest of the NBA to be a little bit jealous that they weren't invited to the trade party. The Warriors especially, are used to not being par ...

As first reported by CSN Bay Area's Matt Steinmetz, the Warriors have acquired the services of power forward Carl Landry. It is a reported two-year, $8 million deal with a player option coming in the second year. With Golden State's desire to increase their front court depth, Landry has been linked to the Warriors for several few weeks now which doesn't make this signing all that surprising. Along with Jarr ...
