The Golden State Warriors are loving life right now.
Winning nine out of their last ten games (and winners of six of seven on the road), Golden State has emerged as one of the premier teams in the NBA’s Western Conference – currently sitting at an impressive 25-14.
But that’s not to say their roster couldn’t use some tweaks.
After a shocking signing of Andre Iguoldala this past offseason, the Warriors are ripe with swingmen – swingmen that are drawing trade interest around the league cites Grantland.com:
Barnes and Thompson draw interest as trade chips all over the league, and Barnes hasn’t met the organization’s high expectations for him this season.
That said – general manager Bob Myers isn’t feeling pressed to make a deal, suggesting that he likes the core of his roster:
“We like our core,” Myers says. “We believe in our core, and we believe they will get better.”
While that’s an understandable sentiment at the current moment, there’s simply no way the Warriors will be able to pay the aforementioned Iguodala, Harrison Barnes and Klay Thompson down the road.
Of course, both Barnes and Thompson are still on their rookie deals so the Warriors aren’t pressed into making any immediate moves – but there are offers out there if they so inclined.
