Golden State Warriors linked as Giannis Antetokounmpo trade suitor

The Golden State Warriors’ season was not going to be one to remember in the 2024 NBA Playoffs. As the No. 10 seed in the NBA Play-In Tournament, they were defeated 118-96 by the Sacramento Kings. 

When the game was over, it felt like the end of an era for the Warriors because they all seemed to know what was coming up next. Some significant changes may be approaching, even if it is something that no one wants to see happen.

The most important one at the moment is what to do with Klay Thompson. This summer, Thompson will become a free agent and search for a big deal. Despite the fact that Thompson, Stephen Curry, and Draymond Green are past their prime, would Golden State be prepared to spend that to have its core players locked up for a few more seasons?

It will be interesting to watch how everything turns out in the end. The Warriors will also be watching the 2024 NBA Playoffs because, depending on how things work out, some major players may be added to the roster this offseason.

Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks is one player that might be traded. If Milwaukee loses in the postseason for a second consecutive year, NBA Insider Brian Windhorst of ESPN hinted that he would search for a change of scenery.

Every NBA team would gain from having a player of Antetokounmpo’s caliber on their roster, thus there would be a strong trade market for him. The Spun’s Chris Rasvoglou thinks the Warriors are among the clubs who could enter the Greek Freak sweepstakes.

“It seems the Warriors have hit their ceiling with their current roster. Klay Thompson and Draymond Green still have moments where they shine, but Steph Curry needs a better co-star.

If Antetokounmpo wants out of Milwaukee, why not force your way to Golden State? He’d get to play for a winning organization without having to worry about carrying the offense every game,” wrote Rasvoglou.

Antetokounmpo and Stephen Curry together have to be a compelling combination for the Warriors. They are obviously not a playoff-caliber squad, much less a championship-caliber one, as they stand right now. Antetokounmpo would immediately alter that.

This season, Antetokounmpo—a perennial MVP candidate who is still in the peak of his career—possibly enjoyed his most productive season in the NBA to date. The Warriors might put together a strong offer for Antetokounmpo given their ability to deal three or four first-round selections this offseason and the presence of a few interesting young players on their roster.
