Who would absorb that contract without getting back Wiseman?
Wiggins is still owed a guaranteed $122 million
imo something changed in front office of Warriors since Durant left. That team is now easly one of worst runned organisations out there. They just can't stop making money- burning bizzare trades and moves that do nothing for them.
It's so obvious that with Klay injury and hope of compeating with Curry is gone. Instad of selling high and kickstarting rebuild they are adding this disaster players like Oubre, Russell, Wiggins.. Their new trade will probably be Hezonja and Westbrook.
Marqueese Chriss is out there , probably in rotation
G league + Curry
Let's see where they end up, but if they fielded that team more or less as is, I think they can still make the playoffs in the 5-8 range. What's hurting them most is Draymond's decline, as they just don't have any defensive intensity anymore. If they can get Wiseman, Wiggins and Oubre to play hard on that end then they should be able to compete.
Though, I think they now become a very real contender for Harden. Wiggins + Wiseman + picks for Harden? Gets GSW back into contention standard talent levels at least. And they're already paying a ton in luxury tax anyway.
$148M commmited in books before Oubre
Starting lineup of : Curry- Wiggins- Oubre- Green and Wiseman
No bench depth whatsoever ( Paschall, Samjlagić, Poole, Lee, Chriss ? )
That team can score, but man, they can't defend 4 out of 5 positions
Green has been disaster last 2 years. Nothing shorter than disaster. He was their by far worst player in nba playoffs of 2019. He got even worst since. I don't think he can any longer be nba starter on any playoff team. He is out of shape, injury prone and flat out doesn't contribute in any way or fashion. Guy turned into terrible version of Tucker, who is alraedy fringe starter.
Before Klay injury there was some hope they can make a trade or play for Giannis. Giannis ain't going to play with 34 years old Curry and Klay who will be learning how to walk again at age of 32.
