On the night of the NBA Draft, the Golden State Warriors received the news that Klay Thompson suffered a lower leg injury. After learning that he would miss yet another season, the team did not make a move to improve on the perimeter around Stephen Curry. His loss is proving to be huge early on.
The Warriors have struggled early on this season in all aspects. Stephen Curry is not looking like himself from three-point territory which has impacted the team greatly. This is because they do not have weapons around Curry for opposing defenses to worry about. Players like Andrew Wiggins and Kelly Oubre Jr. are capable NBA players but do not have the skill set that Thompson does.
If Golden State wants to make a splash, they should take a look at the Philadelphia 76ers. Early in the offseason, Philadelphia hired Doc Rivers as the new head coach and Daryl Morey in the front office. Both were adamant about not trading either Joel Embiid or Ben Simmons.
This does not mean that they would not think about it if the right package is offered. Golden State would have to pay, but it would be worth it to get their team back to championship level.
This style of play something that Golden State is not used to in recent years. Here is a potential trade with Philadelphia that could let them some more impact play makers within the offense.
