The Golden State Warriors could be looking for a boost at the NBA trade deadline. They have been an inconsistent team this year and it is because their roster is constructed in an ineffective way. This is where a trade could come in and the Sacramento Kings could offer an interesting return.
The Warriors have been missing Klay Thompson this season. He is out with a torn Achilles and the offense just has not been the same since his injury. This is the second straight year that Thompson is missing a season with a crucial injury.
Steph Curry has picked up the slack averaging nearly 30 points per game. The Warriors need to add some more depth on the perimeter. He just doesn’t have enough offensive firepower around him with Klay Thompson still sidelined due to injury.
The Kings are a team that have been in NBA trade rumors for many reasons. Buddy Hield was rumored to be traded in the offseason but nothing has happened just yet. Sacramento inserted him back into the lineup with Bogdan Bogdanovic having signed with the Atlanta Hawks.
The Kings could be willing to trade anybody on their roster aside from De’Aaron Fox, who is the franchise player for the future. They have struggled to get wins this season and it doesn’t appear to be turning around anytime soon.
These two California teams could get together for a deal that would help both sides. Let’s take a look and see what a potential trade could look like.
