NBA Trade Deadline 2023 – What will the Golden State Warriors do?

With the NBA Trade Deadline fast approaching, leaders of 30 franchises are busy making the necessary moves by February 9th.

Here, the Warriors are in a complicated situation. Currently in tenth place in the Western Conference (23 wins, 24 losses), the champions are having a difficult season. Golden State is still not able to catch the leading teams and is between the 7th and 10th places. The league’s 3rd-best offense (117.6 points scored), but only the 26th-ranked defense (118 points), is too little to hope to improve. That’s why the Bay franchise is looking for defensive reinforcements, especially on the back line, and even if it’s not a major shakeup, it could move.

What’s special about the Warriors for two seasons is that they still have the tough core that made Golden State a dynasty, but also a young core that has struggled to provide the necessary support at the rotation level this year. While Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are looking to increase their chances of back-to-back games, the Warriors franchise also wants to focus on the future. Not an easy balance.

Another track, but less specific, that Malik Beasley. The Jazz’s back, a true flamethrower off the bench, Bayda would be an additional option.

His salary is $15.5 million this season (with a $16.5 million team option for 2023-24). The competition is also strong, and the Warriors start (very) far.
