Defending champion GSW in crisis, no big deal? Potential for key prospects to remain

Golden State Warriors reporter Anthony Slater of ‘The Athletic’ reported on the movement of the Golden State trade market on the 20th (hereinafter Korean time).

Defending champion Golden State was also evaluated as a strong candidate for the championship this season. This is because they have the experience of winning 4 championships in 8 years, and the key members who took the throne last season are still alive.

However, at the point of more than half of the season, Golden State’s performance has not met expectations at all. Golden State, whose winning rate collapsed again after losing to Boston on the 20th, is in 9th place in the Western Conference with a record of 22 wins and 23 losses. It is painful that the away record is only 5 wins and 18 losses.

Golden State has a number of key players such as Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. It means that there is not much time left to spend with the golden generation. In the case of Green, who is the core of the defense, he may leave the team as a free agent after this season.

However, it is not easy for him to make a big power reinforcement to get results this season right away. It is safe to say that Golden State, the team that overwhelmingly pays the most luxury tax, has no room for a salary cap.

Also, Golden State has no intention of selling key prospects Jonathan Cuminga, James Wiseman and Moses Moody at bargain prices. Especially in the case of Kuminga, there is a belief that he can be important on the playoff roster. Reporter Slater also said that Golden State is unlikely to hit a big deal at the trade deadline.

Reporter Slater said, “People familiar with the Golden State situation don’t expect a big deal that makes a big difference by the deadline. “They’re not aggressively trying to sell three prospects. Other teams are looking to get Weisman or Moody for a bargain, but Golden State isn’t playing low.”

Golden State seems to be aiming for a net exhaust player with less blood loss than a large-scale trade. The position I am most interested in is swingman.

“Golden State is interested in adding a wing resource rather than a big man because, if healthy, Draymond Green and Kevon Rooney will be on the court for a long time in the playoffs,” Slater said. It’s about adding options,” he said.

“For example, last season’s Otto Porter Jr. was one such player. Now, the players Golden State might be targeting are young wings like Jaylen McDaniels, Darius Basley, Rui Hachimura, and Orbie Taupin, all of whom have various talents. It can be used at any level,” he added.

There is also a view that Golden State, which does not have many sales, will aim for the buyout market rather than the trade market. Players like Rudy Gay and Eric Gordon could be candidates if they don’t get traded by the deadline.

What kind of transfer market will Golden State, which needs a rebound, send? Attention is drawn to the move of the defending champion. 헤라카지노
