The Toronto Raptors have made a sudden resurgence and look as though they could compete for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Fred VanVleet is playing like an NBA All-Star and Scottie Barnes is surging as a Rookie of the Year candidate.
Even Pascal Siakam is playing well, as he’s having somewhat of a bounce-back season after struggling last year. But with how competitive the East is, would the Raptors be better off trading Siakam in exchange for younger, potential-filled players?
Meanwhile, take a look at the Golden State Warriors. Yes, they are one of the best teams in the NBA. But they have gone 5-5 in their last ten games.
There’s no need to panic, but if they (for some reason) continue this downward trend, could they look to make a trade?
LATEST NBA NEWS & TRADE RUMORS: How Warriors Could Trade For Raptors Star Pascal Siakam
While it’s highly unlikely that the Warriors make any treads this season, let alone a blockbuster one, it’s always fun to think about. There’s no doubt that Siakam is an All-Star-caliber player, and his fit on the Warriors would certainly be interesting.
So, if not out of realism, out of pure entertainment, what’s a deal that would allow the Warriors to land Siakam? Would it be at all worth it for them? And at the same time, why would the Raptors be interested in that sort of trade?
