Marcus Thompson's post on Golden State Warriors | Latest updates on Sulia
It's looking like Warriors may miss out on Andrei Kirilenko and Carl Landry. Kirilenko wants $8M per in a new deal, according to Yahoo! Sports. That rules out GSW. Since Kirilenko played overseas last season, a sign-and-trade is not an option. Even if the Warriors were willing to go over luxury tax threshold and offer Kirilenko the mid-level exception, that still wouldn't be enough, not with T'wolves offering a deal starting at $8M. Landry, it seems, is going to get a larger offer elsewhere. (Charlotte can offer more than GSW.) He would like to play for the Warriors, but it's sounds unlikely he'd take less money to play for GSW. Landry's camp, no doubt, thinks the Warriors should go into the tax zone to give Landry closer to the midlevel. And the Warriors' refusal to do so, at this point, isn't exactly a vote of confidence for Landry.
