Warriors Match- Kellena Stays At Golden State?

Posted by: JamFan on 07/17/2008 - 11:52 PM

Two years ago the Golden State Warriors found Kelenna Azubuike toiling down in the D League. It's not that he was hiding or anything. He was ripping up that league averaging 22 points per game and dominating. In the two years with the warriors he has played consistantly, shot the ball for a good percentage, and showed flashes of absolute brilliance, especially when he got enough minutes. But the Warriors have so many wing players there were not enough minutes to go around.

The glut of wing players at Golden State is exactly what the Clippers are counting on as they sign AZ to an offer sheet reportedly for 9 Mil over 3 years. The price is not to high for a guy with the potential that AZ displays, so it is that glut that the Clippers hope will keep the Warriors from matching.

Kelenna's numbers projected over 40 minutes are 16 PPG and 6 RPG while shooting 45% form the field and 40% from the 3. Last November he dropped 33 points on the Clippers and they apparently have never forgotten about it.

The Warriors also drafted another wing player in the first round and they signed Corey Maggette away from the Clippers at 10 Mil per year. Add to that the Lakers did not match their offer to Ronny Turiaf for 4 Mil per year, and you have a situation where the Clippers just might get lucky. As it turns out, the Warrior have indeed matched the Clippers offer and he will remain at Golden State.
