Bradley Beal, G, Washington Wizards
This would be the home run acquisition for GM Bob Myers and the Golden State Warriors front office in terms of star-power and the trade package the Warriors would have to give up to acquire Bradley Beal.
While Beal would come at a hefty price of Andrew Wiggins and a slew of draft picks, pairing Bradley Beal up with Stephen Curry in the backcourt and then Klay Thompson down the road would completely change the way the Warriors are being viewed right now and keep the dynasty alive for years to come.
It is not as much of if the Warriors are willing to do this trade as it would be the Wizards willing to do this trade as they have invested a lot into their future with Beal. Washington recently went out and traded away John Wall and a first-round pick to pair Bradley Beal with Russell Westbrook and while the team has struggled early on in the season, the Wizards’ front office still has a lot of faith in this duo.
As a result, this is another one of those trades that could happen down the road instead of immediately, but if Washington is willing to listen to this trade offer, the Warriors have to make sure it gets done. Bradley Beal is such a talented offensive player that he would make the Warriors backcourt one of the better ones in the Western Conference immediately and with Klay Thompson next year, the Warriors would have one of the best perimeter shooting trio in NBA history.
Bradley Beal is now 27-years old and in the prime of his career. After being snubbed from the NBA All-Star game and All-NBA teams last year, he now has a chip on his shoulder this year and moving forward, which could make him one of the most dangerous players in the league.
Beal has already gotten off to a fast start this season even though his team has been struggling overall and if Beal personally wants to be put in a position to win immediately, he should want to go to the Warriors.
The whole dynamic of the Golden State dynasty changes with the addition of Bradley Beal and they would be set up for success now and for the foreseeable future barring no more significant injuries. Bradley Beal is a no-brainer trade target for the Warriors at this point and if they want any shot at being true title contenders this year, they have to make the move for the former All-Star guard to pair with Stephen Curry.
