The Golden State Warriors are stuck in a rut. They are 4-5 in their last nine, but that came just before a six-game skid. The Dubs are 10-13 and currently outside the top ten in the Western Conference. There have been plenty of issues, and Golden State may need an in-season trade to get back on track.
The Warriors must get Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins playing like All-Stars if they want to have any chance at title contention. Stephen Curry remains one of the best players in the world, but the 35-year-old point guard needs additional help. If the Dubs cannot supply it, they could look to the trade market to fill their holes.
The majority of the players who signed new contracts in the offseason become eligible to be traded on Dec. 15, which opens up significantly more possibilities. Here are five players that could interest the Dubs as they attempt to round out their roster.
5. Seth Curry
If the Warriors are looking for another sharpshooter before the deadline, Seth Curry could be available. The younger Curry would prefer to play for a different franchise, but the Warriors may have postseason minutes available. Seth is playing just 11.6 per game for Dallas and is not a consistent part of the nightly rotation.
Seth Curry is a career 43.4 percent 3-point shooter who can make a few plays. He will not be the lead ball-handler but could play next to Steph and Chris Paul. The 33-year-old would certainly knock down open looks and could put up monster numbers in the Bay Area.
The Mavericks are unlikely to trade Curry after signing him to a two-year deal worth $8 million in total, but the veteran could force his way out by demanding more minutes. Golden State is a jump shooting team and having another elite shooter would make a significant impact.
