Andris Biedrins

UPDATE: Dorell Wright to Sixers, Jarret Jack to Warriors, and Andris Biedrins to jail?

The Golden State roster shrunk a bit Wednesday, and could shrink even more if things go badly for Andris Biedrins.

Dorell Wright traded to Philladelphia 76ers

UPDATE: The Warriors will instead receive Jarret Jack to backup Stephen Curry at point guard from the Hornets, rather than Edin Bavcic, as was previously reported.

The deal is still in the works, but it looks like the Warriors will address their need for a backup point guard by trading Dorell Wright.

Wright (and his $4.1 million salary) is still headed to the 76ers, it looks like.

Wright has been the subject of trade discussion for much of the off-season, and rightfully so with a tremendous amount of small forwards on the roster.

It remains to be seen what the Warriors will do with the extra money, but after adding a point guard in the deal it’s anyone’s guess, although General Manager Bob Meyers is ready to sign someone.

Andris Biedrins could be facing jail time

However, with recent news about Andris Biedrins emerging, a big man may be needed next season.

It was reported Tuesday that Biedrins may be facing up to five years in prison for tax evasion charges in his home country of Latvia.

Whether Biedrins and the two others under investigation are convicted is anyone’s guess, but this could have an impact on the Warriors’ plans moving forward.

What kind of country is Latvia where you can’t buy your way out of a tax debt?

I agree Stan, it’s a ridiculous that no one is saying a thing.

Funny though, Biedrins is like a GOD in Latvia, and they still might throw him in jail- where as our athletes (and celebrities) most of the time can just go about their business without so much as a slap on the wrist- and they say capitalism is dead.

I’m going to miss Dorell Wright, even though him being traded this offseason was expected. Dorell was a good Warrior, and he was good in the community as Chris Townsend alluted to yesterday. I like this trade better now, now that it turned into a 3-way trade between the Warriors, the Sixers, and the Hornets. This trade works out for the Warriors and the Sixers since the Warriors get rid of Dorell’s contract and open up a spot for Harrison Barnes to be the starting SF, unless Rush takes that role should the Warriors re-sign him., or the Warriors can… Read more »

As far as Beidrins goes, you hate to make fun of him because of his tax issues which of course is personal, but dang. Unbelievable.

Even though I don’t like Beidrins and wish the Warriors could just get rid of him, I hope nothing but the best for him in the result of this tax evasion stuff. That would suck for him if he has to do jail time.

Biedrins wow he provably has spent that on showgirls and clubs in 1 night! Why doesn’t he just drop down another 25G and hire a psychologist/free throw coach?

That would be funny, when clearly Biedrins should be arrested for a lack of scoring and rebounding and playing basketball at an NBA level. Grand theft, clearly.

The only thing biedrins should be in prison for is stealing money from warrior fans

If Biendrins is smart, he’ll just pay off what he owes. But if he somewhat is found guilty and gets “arrested” (not likely), could the Warriors void his contract?

I don’t want to see this kind of thing happen to anyone but Biendrins intentionally did this, he should pay the consequences.
