NBA Analyst Mentions Pascal Siakam As A Possible Trade Target For The Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors have been underperforming this season, and their recent loss, where they squandered a 24-point lead to the Sacramento Kings in the in-season tournament, has intensified the noise around them.
A number of basketball pundits agree that the Warriors need to make major trades to rebound from their current slump. Now, Michael Scotto from HoopsHype notes the team has several players who could be attractive in trade deals. His list includes Chris Paul, Jonathan Kuminga, and Moses Moody.
“Should the Golden State Warriors look to make a major upgrade to compete for a title this season, the team has notable assets to try and do so.
Chris Paul is on the books for $30.8 million this season, and his salary for next season is non-guaranteed. Forward Jonathan Kuminga and guard Moses Moody also remain coveted around the league.”
This season, several valuable players are stirring up trade rumors, and Pascal Siakam is one name Scotto has singled out. He wonders whether the Warriors would consider Siakam as a trade option in a move to strengthen their bid for a championship run.
“For example, is a trade candidate such as Pascal Siakam, who is represented by agent Todd Ramasar along with Warriors center Kevon Looney, someone who could move the needle towards championship contention? Is it worth increasing the luxury tax bill going forward? These are the types of questions the Warriors will debate leading up to February’s trade deadline.”
