Consensus seems to be that Wiggins is negative value on that contract and it will take a asset to move him.
Let's assume that asset is the Warriors 2021 first round pick.
You then have to give up something of value for Grant. That could be Wiseman or the Minnesota pick but you really shouldn't expect Detroit (fans) to ask for anything less than that when:
1 - it makes you a contender (assuming reasonable health from Klay)
2 - Grant chose Detroit not just for basketball reasons and we'd be moving him after ONE season
3 - Grant has proven to be worth his contract!
Personally I wouldn't trade Grant for anything except a overpay simply. He's been a shining light all season.
IF the Warriors want to make a big move they're going to have to pay a heavy price.

I’m glad y’all are happy with Grant (this isn’t sarcasm btw) but there is no way the difference between Wiggins and Grant, strictly in terms of on-court production, elevates GS to contender status.
I understand why Detroit wouldn’t want to move him for less, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth the cost for us.
