The Golden State Warriors have seemingly been linked to every star player in the NBA over the past several years, and they have managed to acquire some of them. With an Anthony Davis trade looking more and more likely be the day, is there a chance the defending champions could once again get themselves involved?
The path for the Warriors to land Davis is extremely complicated and unrealistic, but sources told ESPN’s Zach Lowe that Golden State “would surely be interested” in exploring the possibility. Actually finding a way is another story.
There’s next to no chance that the Warriors would trade Stephen Curry or Kevin Durant as part of a deal for Davis, unless some farfetched situation arises where the latter has no intention of re-signing with Golden State and would be willing to sign a long-term deal with the Pelicans. Klay Thompson, who is also set to become a free agent this summer, could agree to a sign-and-trade that would send him to New Orleans, but there’s no reason to believe he would do that. Simply put, it’s not going to happen.
