Warriors willing to split up duo

TORONTO - The Golden State Warriors are open for business.

Co-owner Joe Lacob made no bones about it when he told the San Jose Mercury News that he’s willing to do whatever it takes to get the franchise over the hump.

Even if it means trading one of the Warriors’ dynamic guards in Monta Ellis (right) and Stephen Curry.

“I’m certainly biased toward doing something, strongly,” Lacob was quoted by the paper. “What I would really love to do is to pull off the deal to get a superstar. There’s one or two of them out there.”

Late Saturday night, Golden State had its four-game win streak snapped by the Clippers, who controlled a late-game missed free throw to seal the win.

So much of what the Warriors do is based on their backcourt, a tandem Lacob enjoys watching, but one he’d be willing to part with if the right offer gets presented.

“I really like those guys as individuals. And I like them as players,” Lacob said. “But I have to be honest: It depends. If we got offered a great situation, would I break it up? Yes.”
