If the Golden State Warriors is not a superteam anymore, we don’t know what is. There’s a potential Pelicans-Warriors trade in the works, according to a report by Centrio Times, as quoted by News Everyday. The trade will send Davis to the Warriors as a rim protector.
In turn, the Warriors would have to let go of their All-Star player Draymond Green. Reports said the team is getting tired of his off-court behavior. His on-court behavior leaves nothing to be desired, too, because he has been receiving a couple of calls for kicking the opponents.
Is Davis going to Oklahoma City Thunders?
But the recurring trade rumor now is that Davis will be joining forces with OKC’s Russell Westbrook, who has been averaging a triple-double. He recently tied Michael Jordan for seven consecutive triple-doubles in the season. What power would OKC have if they combine Davis’ scoring prowess and Westbrook’s triple-threat machine, right?
Although the said trade will supposedly happen before the February deadline, it isn’t going to be an easy one. Since Davis is highly valued, Pelicans is asking for a lot from OKC. It just reportedly rejected an offer involving Enes Kanter and Anthony Morrow.
But OKC is simply not giving up in finding a replacement for Kevin Durant, who left the Thunders to join the Warriors. NBA trade rumors said the Thunders office is preparing another proposal for the Pelicans.
