Bold Trade Scenario Lands Pascal Siakam in Warriors Territory

Published March 20, 2023 at 7:57 PM

Winning an NBA championship is a great feat, but winning multiple is difficult. Only a handful of teams have achieved this. The Toronto Raptors won their first championship in 2018-19, while the Golden State Warriors dominated the decade. Injuries impact the game's outcome, as seen in the Warriors' loss to the Raptors.

Nevertheless, teams strive for greatness, like the recent trade proposal by James Piercey to potentially lead to another championship run. It showcases the ambition of those reaching the sport's pinnacle.

Here is what the trade would look like:

Toronto Raptors Receive: G Jordan Poole, F Jonathan Kuminga, 2026 First-Round Pick (GSW), 2028 First-Round Pick (GSW)

Golden State Warriors Receive: F/C Pascal Siakam

It is highly probable that the Warriors would utilize Siakam as their starting center. With him, Green, and Andrew Wiggins forming the frontcourt, the team would have the ability to switch between positions, guard multiple players, and create chaos on the court.

The offensive chemistry would also be exceptional. Having an additional top-tier playmaker in the frontcourt could potentially prolong the prime of Steph Curry by an extra year. This would make it almost impossible for opposing teams to contain the Warriors, as their offensive and defensive prowess would be a force to be reckoned with.
