The Golden State Warriors were hit hard with the loss of Klay Thompson in the offseason. He will miss the duration of the season for the second straight year, this time with a torn Achilles. This leaves Steph Curry out on the perimeter with little help. So far this NBA season, Curry has made it work. Could executing a trade for Chicago Bulls star Zach LaVine help to turn things around?
The Warriors are off to a 6-6 start to the 2020-21 NBA season. Steph Curry is scoring 27.8 points per game and is shooting 36.9% from three-point range. This is impressive given the fact that the next two leading scorers on the team are Andrew Wiggins and Eric Paschall.
Draymond Green missed some time with an injury but has made it back on the court and has played the last seven games. Golden State could look to add some help on the perimeter as the season progresses.
There are few better names that have swirled around in trade rumors than Zach LaVine. He leads the Chicago Bulls with 27.7 points per game this season. LaVine has improved as a scorer during his time in Chicago and is still getting better.
The Bulls are a team that has been thrown around in NBA trade rumors regarding both LaVine and Lauri Markkanen. They could choose to hold onto one and trade the other or just part ways with both. Coby White and Wendell Carter Jr. are two young players who look like the real deal.
The Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors are two teams with very different hopes for the season. It would be interesting to see them make a deal such as this one. Here is how Zach LaVine could end up in Golden State.
