He’s a solid fit
Let’s be real — the Warriors didn’t have a good three for most of the season.
The team brought in Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks, two players that filled the minutes and did a solid job while in the game. They were both dealt to Philadelphia where they struggled to get going.
While those two may have been quality pieces for a little while, Wiggins is the future, and he’s also an ideal fit. His 6-foot-7 frame will allow him to press up on players like LeBron James without giving up too much height or strength.
While the Warriors may have a sturdy team, they lack a small-forward.
This hole could ultimately lead to their downfall unless Wiggins is kept around to step into it. That’s why trading Wiggins would have to immediately come with the team replenishing him, and it doesn’t seem likely that they feel that strongly about Georgia phenom Anthony Edwards.
Alfonzo McKinnie showcased last postseason that, when Durant left (he was hurt at the time), the Warriors needed a good replacement. Trading their other small forwards, Wiggins came in and perfectly fit the mold.
Put all four of those reasons together, and it makes sense why Bob Myers may want Wiggins to stay in the Bay for quite a while.
