Warriors owner reveals honest reason for trading Jordan Poole

Even though it has been over a month, the Jordan Poole trade by the Golden State Warriors still doesn’t seem completely real. He joined the Washington Wizards in 2022, when he was only 24 years old, and helped the team win the NBA Championship that year. Owner of the Warriors Joe Lacob provided some explanation for the choice.

Joe Lacob provided some facts about the Jordan Poole to Chris Paul transaction in an interview with Madeline Kenney of the Bay Area News Group.

“We had to change something,” Lacob said. “While it’s a short-term move, Chris Paul is a fabulous Hall of Famer who will I think certainly help our second unit, help our first unit if he plays there, wherever he plays, he’s a tremendous guy.”

Lacob believed that the Warriors needed to get past Draymond Green’s punch on Jordan Poole and into a win-now scenario. They believed that in order to advance the strategy during Steph Curry’s timeframe, they needed to make a change, which regrettably entailed moving Jordan Poole.

“We can be good for several years, not just one, but we definitely want to win,” Lacob said. “We’re doing everything we can. We’re gonna have a huge payroll this year, the biggest in the history of the NBA, and we’re trying to win. I can’t try any harder, we’re trying everything we can.”

By this point, it’s very obvious that Jordan Poole and Draymond Green never really recovered from their blow. When Poole’s family started debating with Draymond on social media only last week, the evidence became much more convincing. Poole was unfortunate because Steph Curry and Klay Thompson always sided with Draymond Green in that scenario, and that is exactly what happened.
