After ending the season as the worst team in the league, the Golden State Warriors are eager to return to their usual role as the league’s favorites. The Dubs have the number two pick in this year’s NBA Draft, but it seems likely they will use it to make a trade.
According to Zach Lowe, the latest rumor from inside the league is that Golden State could trade their number two pick to the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for LaMarcus Aldridge and Spurs’ number eleven pick.
“Someone within the League today texted me and said ‘hey, there is a little bit of buzz about No. 2 to San Antonio for LaMarcus Aldridge and No. 11, and obviously there has to be salary going out.’ And my response was ‘That’s crazy! The Warriors should not do that,'” Lowe said on The Lowe Post as transcribed by HoopsHype.
The 35-year-old forward averaged 18.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game this past season for the Spurs, who missed the playoffs.
