The Warriors are talking trade.
The Oakland Tribune has confirmed Golden State is shopping its pending free agents, trying to get a deal done before Thursday's trade deadline. The Warriors have $17 million in outstanding contracts; $6.9 million of that belongs to veteran forward Vladimir Radmanovic. Center Dan Gadzuric and forward Brandan Wright are both in the final year of their respective contracts.
The Trib says the Warriors are working on a deal to send Gadzuric and Wright to New Jersey. They would reportedly get forward Troy Murphy and a 2012 second-round pick in return. Murphy is a former Warrior.
In an ideal world, the Warriors are looking for a first-round pick, but the Tribune says so far no trades have popped up.
