Why The Warriors Should Make This Trade

Next up, the Warriors are on deck. Golden State shouldn’t think twice about pulling the trigger on this trade if it is on the table. Marcus Smart would be the kind of valuable depth that the Warriors were missing last season.

Granted, he may end up coming off the bench behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Or, he could start at shooting guard with Thompson shifting up to small forward.

Smart averaged 12.9 points per game to go along with 4.9 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game this season with the Celtics. He shot 37.5 percent from the floor and 34.7 percent from the three-point line.

Add in the No. 14 overall pick and this move makes even more sense. Golden State would still be able to target a player like Jalen Smith or Precious Achiuwa.

The Warriors will still need to find some help at center and could stand pat at No. 2 overall to select James Wiseman themselves. But, Smart could be a nice piece for them moving forward.
