inb4 the warriors trade wiggins for paul
OKC might take that if the Warriors offered both their lottery picks, but the question is does that make the Warriors any better? Their problem is they can't grab a rebound or stop anybody with size, CP3 ain't gonna help with that.
the size of paul's contract means he's at best just as negative value a contract as wiggins. a lot of paul's value as a player comes from his veteran locker room leadership, that's not a problem the warriors have
if i'm the warriors, i ask for OKC's lottery picks back
it's on OKC to find a partner to dump paul, because he devalues their draft picks and with the warriors, at least wiggins "fits" next to curry, klay and draymond
therein lies the problem with trying to find a trade partner for paul. young teams devalue their picks after trading for paul, veteran teams kill their depth without sending back an albatross contract of their own.
i only really see the celtics and clippers being good trading partners for OKC
