NBA Warriors Trade news is abuzz with reports of Klay Thompson joining the Indiana Pacers. There are reports of the Golden State Warriors wanting to sell him off. Thompson’s dismal shooting record may be to blame in this scenario.
NBA Warriors Trade rumors are flying thick and fast about Thompson being picked up by the Pacers. HNGN has reported that Thompson is still struggling to find his mojo. His average has even slumped to 18.8 points for each game.
The Warriors have won 8 out of their last 9 outings. The only defeat has been against the Los Angeles Lakers. Stephen Curry has been outstanding and so has Kevin Durant. Curry even set a new three-point field goal record against the Pelicans. Durant is tied with Michael Jordan when it comes to consecutive 20 point games.
However, NBA Warriors trade rumors continue to talk about Thompson’s below par performance. There are rumors of Kevin Durant outshining him and possibly affecting his overall performance.
How The Deal May Pan Out
There are also rumors of Thompson being traded off to the Pacers. This may be a three team deal. The Warriors will receive Khris Middleton and John Henson from the Milwaukee Bucks. They will also get the Pacers’ Monta Ellis. Jabari Parker and Klay Thompson will join the Indiana Pacers. Paul George and Zasha Pachulia will be joining the Warriors.
There might be a relatively easier deal where Paul George can be directly exchanged for Thompson. The Pacers may want to sell off Paul George. The Warriors know that George will boost their defensive prospects since their offense line is working just fine.
Thompson will also be able to function as the primary offensive star for the Pacers. He has always been in Stephen Curry’s shadow. Parent Herald also reports that Paul George is frustrated with the Indiana Pacers. He has already stated that the team has “no trust, there’s no chemistry, there’s no belief”. He may also prefer a move to the Warriors.
