Remember when the Warriors insisted publicly and privately they didn’t acquire D’Angelo Russell just as a trade asset then traded him before he finished a single season in Golden State? No?
Anyway, the Warriors still have Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson in their primes.
However, the Warriors haven’t really pushed to acquire extremely-available Ben Simmons. Golden State owner Joe Lacob called a blockbuster trade very unlikely. The Warriors should be skeptical about trading for Simmons, whose flaws become more pronounced in the playoffs.
