Colin Cowherd Floats Celtics-Warriors Trade Involving Jaylen Brown And Jordan Poole
As of this writing, the two finalists from last year’s NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors, are both facing elimination in their respective second-round playoff series. The former trail 3-2 to the Philadelphia 76ers, while the latter are down 3-2 to the Los Angeles Lakers.
While the Celtics and the Warriors are still competing to stay alive in the playoffs, trade rumors surrounding both teams are already running rampant. In fact, NBA analyst Colin Cowherd even linked them to each other as potential trade partners.
Appearing on “The Herd”, Cowherd suggested a trade that he deemed beneficial for both parties. The controversial analyst now said that the Celtics should consider trading Jaylen Brown and Malcolm Brogdon to the Warriors for Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins.
“Win or lose, I think the Celtics have to make a move,” Cowherd said. “And I’ll throw this out to you. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum doesn’t necessarily work because Brown’s got more alpha and Tatum’s the better player. But, if you brought Jordan Poole and Wiggins in from the Warriors, Tatum would clearly be the best player and he would have a wing defensive specialist.”
“Jaylen Brown is perfect for the Warriors.”
