Report: Warriors “Getting Trade Calls” for 2 Key Players

With four championships (and six trips to the Finals) under their belts after nine seasons, the Golden State Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics to claim the 2022 NBA Championship.

However, the team was unable to repeat its 2023 success, falling to the Los Angeles Lakers (in six games) in the NBA Playoffs’ second round.

The Warriors are “getting calls” for Jonathan Kuminga and Jordan Poole, according to Andscape’s Marc J. Spears, who was speaking on Friday’s episode of NBA Today on ESPN.

Spears: “Golden State is also getting calls on Kuminga; they’re getting calls on Jordan Poole.”

With averages of 9.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game while shooting 52.5% from the field and 37.0% from three-point range, Kuminga completed his second season in the NBA.

The 20-year-old only played 6.1 minutes per game on average during the postseason, so he barely saw the court.

He played for 20.8 minutes on average per game in the regular season as a point of comparison.

Although he didn’t play in every game, Poole had a strong regular season, averaging 20.4 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4.5 assists while shooting 43.0% from the field.

The former Michigan star’s averages did, however, substantially decline throughout the tournament.

Through 13 games, he shot 34.1% from the field and 25.4% from outside the arc, averaging 10.3 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game.

Mike Dunleavy Jr. was introduced by the Warriors as their new general manager on Friday.
