The Golden State Warriors are going to “consider” trading their 2020 first-round pick. Here are five trades they should look into involving it.
It’s been a tough season for the Golden State Warriors. However, much of their struggles can clearly be attributed to the lack of health from their star players. After all, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry played in just five games combined.
While 15-50 and the only team not in playoff contention sound brutal, this team should bounce back with ease. They have the star power and the role players to do so, but making it all fit will be a completely different monster for head coach Steve Kerr.
Having the future assets to complete high-profile trades, the Warriors are looking into dealing their 2020 first-round pick, one that’s value will highly depend on the lottery. They will have the highest odds for the No. 1 overall pick, but who knows if the ping pong balls will be in their favor.
According to Monte Poole of NBC Sports, general manager Bob Myers is “considering” trading the pick. While that leaves many unknowns, the general idea is that, if the right trade comes across the table, the Warriors won’t hold back.
A disgruntled star or a future pick to continue to bolster their draft capital should be what the Dubs aim for. That said, let’s dive into five realistic trades that Golden State could make involving their 2020 first-round pick.
