The Golden State Warriors initially had championship aspirations heading into this season. Klay Thompson’s unfortunate injury obviously put an end to those. Still, the organization wanted to put up a respectable effort in 2020-21 – hence the $82 million mistake that was adding Kelly Oubre Jr.
With 38 games in the books, Golden State is 19-19 on the year and sits one game out of eighth place in the Western Conference.
This week, president of basketball operations Bob Myers appeared on 95.7 The Game’s “Steiny, Guru & Dibs” show and offered some insight into what the front office was thinking heading into the trade deadline.
It was an illuminating conversation.
“It’s the balancing act as far as what makes sense now, but doesn’t hamper us in the future,” he said.

“What can we do that maybe can be beneficial this year and into next year. We’ll be aggressive. We’ll look around. There were years where we had the best record and were pretty quiet at the trade deadline. We didn’t really do much or make many calls. I think we’ll be more open in making calls and listening to calls than we’ve been.”
Will anything happen between now and the March 25th deadline? Time will tell.
