Warriors notebook: Trades remain possibility
OAKLAND After selecting Stephen Curry with the No. 7 pick in Thursday's NBA draft, Warriors general manager Larry Riley said there remains a need for a big man who can defend and rebound. And he said he wouldn't mind alleviating the logjam at shooting guard to acquire that player.

With Stephen Jackson penciled in as the team's starting shooting guard, it's possible the Warriors could move one or more of their guards and wings to get a versatile power forward who also could play center or small forward.

Marco Belinelli, Anthony Morrow, Monta Ellis, Kelenna Azubuike and C.J. Watson all have spent time at shooting guard, and the team also acquired guards Acie Law and Speedy Claxton on Wednesday from Atlanta for Jamal Crawford. Watson is a restricted free agent.

"I would like to add another player to this team. I've said that, and I think that's important to us," Riley said. "So as we go though the summer and we continue to work, it's possible that we could alleviate (the glut at guard) a little bit."

Rumors Thursday had the Warriors working on a trade that would send center Andris Biedrins, forward Brandan Wright and Belinelli to Phoenix for power forward Amare Stoudemire. Riley wouldn't discuss the possible move but knows he has to balance a roster that lists seven players 6-foot-5 or shorter.

"We talked (earlier this week) about ones (point guard) and fours (power forward) a great deal and in essence, we've taken a guy that fills a point guard need," Riley said. "So now, what's the next need? It's to go find a guy that could play some around the basket. Maybe as a four, maybe as a four who plays some (center) or a four who plays the three."

About that trade

Riley discuss the importance of the Crawford deal, which saves the Warriors roughly $12 million in salary cap space over the next two years. Riley said the Warriors want to give Law, who averaged just 12.8 minutes per game in two seasons with the Hawks, a chance to see what he can do. He hasn't yet talked to Claxton, who might be contemplating retirement after battling a left knee injury the past two seasons. "We had to manage our cap, and we had to prepare for the 2010 season to where we would be in a healthy position," Riley said. "We were able to accomplish that."

Around the rim

The Warriors announced four front office moves Thursday. Former assistant coach Travis Schlenk was named director of player personnel. Schlenk joined the Warriors before the 2004-05 season and worked as a video scout before he became an assistant. Scott Pruneau, who's been with the organization for the past 26 seasons, was named director of scouting. Larry Harris will work as a consultant/scout after joining the team as an assistant last November, and former NBA player Lee Mayberry was hired as a scout.
