The Golden State Warriors are prepared to offer Andrew Bogut and either Klay Thompson or Harrison Barnes to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Dwight Howard.
The Warriors can also offer expiring contracts such as Richard Jefferson or Andris Biedrins to offer more cap relief to the Lakers, though only Steve Nash is signed for 14-15.
The Warriors are confident that they can give the Lakers the best offer should Howard decide he doesn't want to re-sign.
The Warriors are not scared off by Howard's recent injuries or his personality.
“Are you kidding?” one source said. “He’s the best center in the game.”
