Without Klay Thompson for the second-consecutive NBA season, the Golden State Warriors are exactly what everyone expected them to be — unpredictable! Steph Curry has been quietly putting together one of his best seasons of his career and with other key talents in Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins, Kelly Oubre Jr. and rookie James Wiseman, this team could definitely make the playoffs this season and their front-office fully expects them to contend in the playoffs this year.
The Warriors will be fighting to earn a playoff spot in the Western Conference this year, which is exactly why we should expect them to be aggressive at this year’s trade deadline and definitely make a move or two to add more talent to their roster.
Given all of the new faces on their roster this year and all of the injuries they have dealt with, the Warriors are actually in a really good position at 22-21. Some days, they look like a team that does not look anything like a playoff team and other days, this team looks like they can compete with anyone in the league.
This is exactly how every thought the Warriors would be this year, but a lot of their concerns are surprisingly on the offensive-end of the court. With no Klay, Steph Curry is the only productive offensive player on this roster surrounded by a bunch of secondary scoring talents.
With Wiggins and Oubre Jr. struggling at times offensively, Golden State is in the market for another high-level offensive talent, which is why they will likely make a big move at the trade deadline. With that said, let’s take a look at three last-minute trade targets that could make a difference in the Warriors making the playoffs this season.
