NBA Trade Rumors – The Golden State Warriors, Boston Celtics and Miami Heat recently hooked up on a three-team trade which sent Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Warriors. At this point, Golden State has addressed the most pressing issue of adding a more reliable backup point guard behind Stephen Curry, but they could still make moves before the February trade deadline.
According to Rusty Simmons, Warriors GM Bob Myers will not necessarily go out and look to make moves, but he is also not closing the door on any potential discussions which could make his team better.
Bob Myers said the Warriors are about $2 million under the NBA luxury tax threshold, but they have no mandate from ownership to stay there.
Bob Myers: “Nobody is sitting back and saying, ‘Well, we’re done now. We did our jobs. Let’s see what happens.’”
Assuming the Dubs want to keep Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green and the starting unit, it’s hard to find any other player that would be coveted around the league on the Warriors’ roster. Golden State will likely see how their new additions fit into the system before taking any calls, but they could still be players around trade deadline.
