Before the NBA Trade Deadline, Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium claims that the Golden State Warriors are dealing Cory Joseph to the Indiana Pacers in return for cash and a second-round pick.
According to Brett Siegel of ClutchPoints, Andrew Wiggins is staying with the Warriors even though Cory Joseph was moved by the organization before the deadline.
Before the deadline, there was a lot of conjecture about what the Warriors would do, and now we know. Cory Joseph, who averaged 2.4 points per game while playing in 26 games for the Warriors this season, is close to retiring. Although there was a lot of conjecture about Andrew Wiggins’ future with the organization, he is still there and will work to get the Warriors to the postseason.
Tyrese Haliburton is leading the Pacers, who are hoping to make a deep run into the playoffs this season. Joseph joins this team. He will not finish the season with Golden State, where he played his first campaign. Joseph gives the Pacers, a decent but primarily youthful squad, an experienced presence. In the upcoming spring season, younger players may find him to be a great resource.
For Wiggins, he remains where he excelled in his basketball career. Although Wiggins’ and the Warriors’ season has not gone as planned, the group is still together and is attempting to qualify for the NBA Play-In tournament and then advance to the playoffs.
