Trading for a player like Marcus Smart is easier said than done. Smart has become one of the most polarizing players that isn’t typically considered a star. He does everything on the court, and in 2020, he did most of it efficiently.
Smart averaged 13.5 points per game last season. While his percentages still weren’t great, he was nailing 2.4 threes per game. That outside shot would prove handy on a team that values it like Golden State.
Averaging 1.8 steals per 36 minutes, Smart is one of the scrappiest players in the league. Signing a four-year, $52 million deal during the 2018 offseason, Smart has become extremely valuable for the Celtics.
Assuming his cost and at least a first-round pick is what it’d take to bring Smart in, it’s unlikely the Warriors actually make a run for the 24-year-old guard. However, his defense alongside Klay Thompson’s dynamic two-way nature would make the Warriors feared once again.
All three of these players are a pipe dream, and it’d also depend on the cost each team would demand.
