The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets are talking trade between their big men.
The trade in question is Warriors center Andris Biedrins for the Rockets center Hasheem Thabeet and power forward Jordan Hill.
According to the Contra Costa Times, the Rockets need a quality big man as an insurance policy for Yao Ming, who has been injured over the past few season.
Ming is currently a free agent and it is unknown if he will be resigned since the Rockets drafted power forward Marcus Morris and center Donatas Motiejunas on Thursday.
The Warriors who have wanted to get rid of the unproductive Biedrins and his Zito-esque contract for some time.
Biedrins still has 3 years and $27 million left on his contract.
The salaries match with Thabeet and Hill, and their contracts have a team option after next year, which the Warriors wouldn't necessarily need to take.
However, according to the Contra Costa Times, the Warriors may not think the package is good enough at this point. Thabeet is not an NBA quality center and though Hill has some promise, he has a long way to go.
If the Warriors do make the trade and then drop Thabeet and Hill next year, it would shave a lot of salary off the payroll for the Warriors to be in a quality free agent market for 2012.
