Warriors linked to Myles Turner as part of Pacers trade talks
The Golden State Warriors are almost destined to make some kind of trade before the offseason comes to an end. On Thursday came reports of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson pioneering for a Bradley Beal trade. Well, the Warriors have also poked around with interest on Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner, according to Alex Didion of NBC Sports.
“The organization has spoken with the Indiana Pacers about a deal, with Myles Turner’s name being in those conversations, The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor reported.”
If the Warriors do in fact land Myles Turner, it would have to be the end for James Wiseman, right? At least, it appears that would be the case.
The Warriors got bounced by the Memphis Grizzlies in the play-in tournament and are finally set to get Klay Thompson back on the court after a pair of brutal injuries. Adding Turner to the Splash Brothers and Draymond Green would put the Warriors as one of the best teams in the Western Conference and another legitimate threat to the NBA title.
Sure, it could be nothing, but where there is smoke there is fire, and the Warriors have been involved in a ton of trade rumors and it should increase leading up to the NBA Draft, where they have picks No. 7 and No. 14.
