If there is a team that could be looking to shake things up to this point of the season, it could be the Golden State Warriors. This was a team that entered the season with championship aspirations and could look to make a move in order to return to that level. The San Antonio Spurs could have some intriguing options surface in NBA trade rumors closer to the deadline.
The Warriors currently sit in the eighth spot of a difficult Western Conference with a 14-13 record. What they have been able to do this season is a testament to the dominance of Steph Curry. On draft night, it came out that Klay Thompson suffered a torn Achilles and will miss the season.
In his absence, Steph Curry has continued to lead Golden State. He is averaging 30 points per night and shooting 43.5% from three-point range. Nonetheless, the Warriors could still use another weapon if they want to make any kind of run come the postseason.
This is where the Spurs would fit in a trade. To this point of the season, San Antonio might be the surprise team. They are currently sixth in the West with a record of 15-11. Dejounte Murray has solidified the notion that he is going to be a star. Murray is averaging 14.3 points, seven rebounds, and five assists per game this season.
This has been a big reason for the success of the Spurs along with DeMar DeRozan, who leads the team with 20.3 points per game. The current contract situation of DeRozan could force the team to make a trade.
The Warriors would be an interesting fit. Here is a deal that could land DeRozan in Golden State this season.
