Rumor: David Lee May Be On His Way To The Warriors

Marcus Thompson of the Contra Costa Times reports that the Golden State Warriors have put an offer on the table in which they’d ship forward Anthony Randolph (and other pieces) to the New York Knicks in a sign-and-trade deal for David Lee.

Whether or not this trade happens depends on LeBron James’ decision regarding free agency. If he wants to go to New York, the Knicks must renounce Lee’s Bird Rights to clear space for James’ max contract.

If James says he’s going anywhere else, then the trade has a strong chance of happening, Thompson says.

There are no details yet on what Lee’s new contract might look like or who else from the Warriors might be involved in such a swap. Either way, it dims the light on what little hope Phoenix may have had of nabbing Lee as a consolation prize.
