One NBA writer is proposing that the New Orleans Pelicans acquire Andrew Wiggins from the Golden State Warriors in a blockbuster trade. Lee Tran of Fadeaway World proposed the following trade between the Pelicans and Warriors:

Golden State Warriors Receive: Brandon Ingram

New Orleans Pelicans Receive: Andrew Wiggins, Jonathan Kuminga, Moses Moody

“Andrew Wiggins is one of the best 3 and D players in the league, providing solid complementary offense and guarding the best player on the opposing team,” Tran wrote in his latest NBA trade column. “He and Herb Jones would be one of the best wing defensive duos in the NBA if paired together. Wiggins is also a solid floor spacer, averaging 39.6% from the 3PT range, and he would definitely get plenty of looks next to Zion Williamson.

“This past season, Andrew Wiggins averaged 17.1 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists. One underrated aspect about Wiggins is that he’d bring much-needed championship experience to the Pelicans, and perhaps he can help them take the next step as a team.”

Wiggins helped the Warriors win the 2022 NBA title over the Boston Celtics in six games. He signed a four-year, $109 million contract extension in October 2022. The one-time All-Star will make $24.3 million next season.

The 2014-15 NBA Rookie of the Year with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Wiggins appeared in 37 games for the Warriors last season. He averaged 17.1 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 47.3% from the floor, 39.6% from beyond the arc and 61.1% from the free-throw line.
