The Warriors did sign Kevin Durant which was a major coup of sorts. This signing has led to major rumors that the Warriors will look to trade Klay Thompson. The Warriors, however, may not go in for any major deals until early next year.
Sources feel that the team will be waiting to see how the lineup works out. The Warriors will now observe overall performances and take a call likewise.
