The Warriors are sinking, and everyone aside from Stephen Curry is on the table.
That’s what The Athletic’s Shams Charania recently stated on the Run It Back show. The news makes sense given Golden State’s shrinking window to take advantage of Curry’s play. This is a team in need of desperate change if it wants to make a run — the veterans haven’t been good enough.
Would Dejounte Murray be an answer? He’s one of the better players available in the trade market and the Hawks are reportedly shopping him.
As ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski stated on Threads, the Hawks are “open to ALMOST anything at the trade deadline, but there’s no question that they’ve gone as far as they’ll probably go on Dejounte Murray’s pairing with Trae Young in the backcourt. They’re talking Murray deals — and others — throughout the league.”
The Athletic’s Anthony Slater has added to the smoke, stating on the Warriors Plus Minus podcast that Murray is a potential trade target to monitor for the team.
What would a trade look like, and would it make sense for both teams? Here’s a framework for a good Murray-to-the-Warriors deal.
