The Golden State Warriors will likely have an active offseason, and one move they should consider is trading small forward Andrew Wiggins.
There’s no denying this season has been challenging for the Golden State Warriors. They’re 15-50 and won’t play again this season if the league decides to limit how many teams return to action.
Halfway through the season and prior to the NBA’s trade deadline, the Warriors brought in Andrew Wiggins, a former first-overall pick. He was traded for D’Angelo Russell, also bringing in Minnesota’s 2021 first-round pick to the Bay Area.
Wiggins, in his few games with the Warriors, played well. However, the Warriors may need to deal the forward they’ve praised as their potential starting SF.
Whether it be in a three-team trade or not, the Warriors will be looking to enhance their roster. While they have no plans to trade Wiggins as of now, this offseason and the offers that are looked at could certainly include him.
His contract may not be team-friendly and could see potential buyers turn their heads, another reason the Warriors should try to move him. Wiggins is set to make over $33 million in the 2022-2023 season and almost as much till then.
That’s the reason dealing Wiggins could be tough, but with the team considering moving their first-round pick, he certainly could be coupled with other assets to make a fair deal. That said, here are five teams that may look into trading for Wiggins and that coveted pick.
