The Golden State Warriors have extra pieces on their roster that may not necessarily get much run when this team is at full strength. Big man Nemanja Bjelica, who has been in and out of the rotation, is one of them.
The Warriors haven’t given Nemanja Bjelica many minutes this season. Could a trade be in store as he could certainly be a rotational piece on a contender?
Golden State isn’t expected to be overly active prior to the 2022 NBA Trade Deadline, but the Warriors could look to accrue future picks. In doing so, the Dubs aren’t going to trade away any pieces that could be vital to a title run.
Players like Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green and Jordan Poole will more than likely not be on the trading block as the Warriors have a championship-level roster as it stands. However, Bjelica has lost minutes with the success of Porter Jr.
With that trend likely to continue, he could be a player other contenders opt to trade for. With that in mind, let’s dive into the case for and against trading Bjelica.
