It's the only thing that worked for them this year. But it would be nice if they can trade one of them for a big. Like David West...

Curry, its not even a tough choice. Monta scores and thats it, but Curry can distribute the ball and run the offense. If you keep Monta he cant move to PG and you still have an undersized, score first SG. You keep Curry who is the same size and plays PG and can actually play the position.

They have all they need, except a center. Giving up that much size in the back court they need a big to guard the rim to cover up for that lack of size. Deandre Jordon or Javale Mcgee type players would really help them a lot.
