Golden State Warriors not actively pursuing trades, yet…
The Golden State Warriors aren’t active in trade talks right now but that could change as we approach the 2020 NBA Draft in October.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard all of the trade rumors regarding the Golden State Warriors. While there are plenty of reasons for the Dubs to make a deal in the offseason, Bob Myers has stated the team is not actively in trade talks with anyone right now.
Myers joined ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on his podcast to talk about the NBA. Here, Myers told Woj that the Dubs have not been looking to make any trades just yet.
“To be truthful, we’re not discussing trades with teams right now. I don’t even know if we’re allowed, but we’re not.”
He went on to explain that until the Dubs are more certain of what they need moving forward, they won’t be looking to make any trades. The NBA’s shortened season, along with injuries to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, made it difficult for the Warriors to evaluate their talent. Furthermore, there is no telling how the league’s finances will be impacted.
“At this point, it’s almost not worth hypothesizing internally, we still just need to operate as who’s the best fit for us. Every team is always looking at their economics, will they change, maybe, but right now we’re not worried about that kind of information because we just don’t have it.”
Even so, there is a great chance the Dubs engage in trade talks by September. With the NBA Draft Lottery approaching later this month, the franchise will soon know where they are selecting in the order. I’m sure plenty of teams will begin sending their best offers for the No. 1 overall pick if the Warriors win the lottery.
Whether or not Myers begins the discussion or not, the rest of the NBA will bring proposals straight to Golden State’s front door soon.
