The Warriors seem to know full well that Monday's surprising hire of TV analyst Mark Jackson as their head coach is only the first step in an attempt to transform a culture of lackluster defense.

The next step - or leap - is remaking the roster, a process that is much more involved and probably ultimately more important than the coaching search.

"I'll believe Mark will be able to get our defense where we want to go, but we're going to make an effort to get players that can help," general manager Larry Riley said. "He has the strength of personality and has stressed that, if this team is going to get better, it has to start on the defensive end. As far as we're concerned, that's right.

"We also know that he's going to make efforts to help our defense from the first day of practice. He's going to make defense a priority."

On Tuesday, some details of Jackson's three-year, $6 million deal became known and the Warriors confirmed that he'll be joined by top a.ssistant Michael Malone, a defensive guru. Rumors also swirled about the team's trade talks. ESPN reported that a Monta Ellis-for-Andre Iguodala deal has been discussed - an idea that has been considered for the better part of two years.

League sources said the Warriors also have discussed Ellis, among a variety of other players, in trade talks with Atlanta, Chicago, Memphis, Orlando and the Lakers. Executive board member Jerry West said at his opening news conference last month that the Warriors needed to be willing to take risks, and the most obvious gamble would be breaking up the backcourt of Ellis and Stephen Curry.

"We are doing business as usual and will explore possibilities relating to getting the team better," Riley said via text. Per team policy, he wouldn't comment on specific trade possibilities.

Riley said the Warriors' basketball operations members have discussed the roster with Jackson "to some degree." They also want the new coach's perspective on the June 23 draft.

This year's draft is widely considered weak, and the Warriors have said they expect to get only a rotation player at No. 11 and someone they hope can make the team at No. 44. So trades and free agency might offer the most realistic chance to drastically alter the team's composition.

When the Warriors discuss trades and court free agents, they'll be looking for players who fit their up-tempo style but bring a new sense of defensive toughness. The hiring of Malone will go a long way toward helping the inexperienced Jackson instill the defensive vision because the a.ssistant has been credited with Cleveland's defensive success under Mike Brown from 2005 through '10.

"We'll keep playing at a reasonably good tempo, but we'll reduce the number of possessions in a game," Riley said. "Our defensive philosophy will be one in which the players know that they have to play defense and have to get back on defense.

"We'll run when opportunities present themselves, and I think we'll still be an exciting team, but there will be more control as far as shot selection."

If the Lakers make a move for Ellis, it would be for Lamar Odom.

Odom + Blake + Brown for Ellis + Dorell Wright maybe

Orlando has too many sh*tty contracts like Hedo and Arenas for any team to be rushing to deal with them right now especially with other options. Because any team who deals with Orlando will have to take one or even both of those awful contracts which arent even worth it for Golden State or LA.
