Trade exception expires

With the last few hours remaining here before the Trade exception we got for Diogu is dead. Here's a little more on how it worked.

The $2.1 million trade exception the Warriors got in exchange for forward Ike Diogu expires Thursday.

Diogu was part of that eight-played trade with Indiana on Jan. 17, 2007, which landed the Warriors forwards Jackson and Al Harrington . But Diogu's part of the trade was officially a separate transaction, allowing the Warriors to get the exception.

$2. 1 million is awfully small but the consensus if in the unlikely event the Warriors decide to use it Leon Powe would be a solid choice. With the Celtic's success he hasn't had any opportunity to get any PT over there. He may be a bad shooter and his turnover ratio hurts the eyes but his two big strengths are our two weaknesses Rebounding and Free Throws although the latter has improved considerably. He may have been injury prone coming out of college but if he isn't getting any minutes in Beantown with that star studded lineup just what use is he to them. In the 11 hours the warriors have they should make a attempto to at least get East bay product Leon Powe.

Leon to the Bay!
