The Golden State Warriors can easily claim to be the dynasty of the current NBA era, having won four titles since 2015. Of course, they didn’t threepeat like the Lakers or pull off a double threepeat like the Chicago Bulls, but no team has been as dominant over a particular period as they have been since the Bulls were in the 90s.
Things have been pretty bleak in Chicago since the last dance, though there have been some promising years here and there. However, an acquisition from the Warriors could see them become a force in the Eastern Conference again.
The NBA Analysis Network has suggested a trade that would see Andrew Wiggins leave the Bay Area for The Windy City after helping the Warriors return to the top of the totem pole last season. The Canadian had a telling impact under head coach Steve Kerr last season and there’s little doubt that the team would not be defending champions without his contributions.
According to the aforementioned publication, the trade would land the Bulls Wiggins, as well as center Kevon Looney, while the Warriors would receiver Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso, a 2024 first-round pick, and a 2026 first-round pick swap.
The Warriors might have a hard time accepting that their dynasty could be coming to an end, but they’re also not naive. Their stars are aging while the rest of the teams around them are getting younger and stronger. The Memphis Grizzlies are looking like they’re next up in the West while the Boston Celtics, who already met them in the finals last year, have more experience and could go on a run of their own.
They just might be open to letting some of their key players go in order to rebuild.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
