Green to New Orleans- Part 1

Shooting. Shooting. Shooting. Once the most-feared three-point shooting team in the league, the Warriors have dipped to not even being in the top-three in three-pointers made per game. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it certainly has taken a bit away from their offensive prowess.

The addition of Nikola Mirotic would enhance the Warriors shooting quite a bit. He currently averages a career-high 17.3 points per game, including 2.6 threes per game. Mirotic is part of the reason the Pelicans have the league’s second-most productive offense.

Tack on another solid shooter in E’Twaun Moore and you make the Dubs a feared three-point shooting team once again. For New Orleans, this doesn’t seem like a horrible deal either. They’d gain a player that is great on both ends of the court and would thrive alongside Anthony Davis.

Holiday, Davis and Green on the court with whoever else could be the league’s best defensive lineup. The Pelicans must build around Davis in order to keep him, and this trade helps them show Davis that they’re serious about taking the team to the next level.

There aren’t many reasons why either team wouldn’t at least consider this deal.
