The Golden State Warriors are beginning to figure things out this season. They are currently 19-16 in the Western Conference and in the eighth spot. Golden State came into the season with championship hopes but was derailed in the NBA offseason.
The Warriors were looking like a team that was ready to get back to their winning ways. On draft night, Klay Thompson suffered a lower leg injury that turned out to be torn Achilles. This was a huge blow to Golden State and it took a few weeks to get over.
The Warriors seem to have their legs back under them and it is because of the dynamic play is Steph Curry. The former back to back MVP is averaging 29.5 points per game while shooting 41.3% from the three-point line.
If Golden State is interested in getting Curry some more help on the perimeter, they could look to the Detroit Pistons. This is a team that is certainly going to be selling at the NBA trade deadline given the fact that they are one of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference.
Blake Griffin will be at the top of the list but there are plenty after. Wayne Ellington could be an intriguing name to keep an eye on for the Warriors.
The Warriors are in the market for any player that can take some attention off Curry from opposing defenses. Let’s take a look at what a potential deal between Golden State and Detroit might look like.
