Golden State Warriors could go big or go home
The most drastic thing the Golden State Warriors could do is sell important members of the young core. This risky move would likely take a few years to truly backfire — giving a reason for the franchise to prioritize short-term gains.
It would be a bold, unexpected and needlessly reckless decision, but an option nevertheless.
Trade James Wiseman and Moses Moody
First things first, the Dubs would have to limit the potential damage a deal like this could cause in the future. This means clinging tight to their most promising prospect (Jonathan Kuminga) and hoping James Wiseman and Moses Moody do not blossom into players they would regret giving up.
Of course, this all is determined by who they get in return. No one will be upset about losing Moody and Wiseman if the player Golden State trades for helps bring a title (or two) to the Bay area.
Is anyone capable of putting the Dubs over the top? Christian Wood is likely the best bet. He’s a floor-spacing big-man who is averaging 17.5 points and 10.3 rebounds in Houston. At 26 years of age, Wood is the guy Golden State should target.
Myles Turner is another name the Dubs could consider — but his recent injury casts a shadow of doubt over that proposal.
