A surprise participant in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes, Golden State obviously has plans to ensure its deep playoff run last season was no fluke.

The Warriors reportedly opened trade talks with Utah, offering former Ute center Andrew Bogut in an attempt to clear the necessary cap space to sign Howard outright.

Though those trade talks fell through, the Warriors did end up sending Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush to Utah, according to Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski, TNT's David Aldridge, and CBS's Ken Berger. The trade has since been confirmed by Deseret News beat reporter Jody Genessy.

In return, Golden State is sending multiple draft picks to the Jazz, including a 2014 first-round pick.

Golden State made the transaction with the Jazz in order to make room for Andre Iguodala, the former Nuggets star who agreed to a four-year, $48 million deal with the California club, according to Wojnarowski. Reports surfaced Monday that Iguodala will head to California as part of a sign-and-trade involving the Nuggets and Jazz.

The Warriors did not re-sign Carl Landry, who picked up a four-year deal with the Kings. They also let Jarrett Jack walk, who signed with Cleveland.

Golden State cleared some cash for the Warriors' dream summer by not re-signing either of the team's free agents.

I hope the Jazz know what they're doing.

The Jazz clearly know what they're doing. They need to extend the contracts of Hayward and Favors this summer - and they have now done what they need to do to assure both that their best opportunity is with Utah. They have also created enormous flexibility for themselves, with two 1st round draft picks in the talent-heavy 2014 draft. While the young guys learn the ropes this year, if we make the playoffs - great start! If we don't, we could get Jabari Parker or another stud, and can be a big player in the talent-laden 2014 free agent market.

No lose scenarios all around, with a lot of flexibility and an eye to the future.
