The Warriors are likely to stay put as the 2022 trade deadline nears, but there’s no denying that trading Andrew Wiggins could bring in a big-name star.
As for Wiggins, he’s averaging 18.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game so far this season. While his numbers aren’t among the best of his career, his efficiency, which is what most teams care more about, is at career-high levels.
Shooting 48.6% from the field, Wiggins has been a key for the Warriors, but with his contract, trading Wiggins is also the only way Golden State brings in another superstar-caliber player. That said, let’s dive into the case to and against trading Wiggins.
