If the Warriors want to land Raptors big man Pascal Siakam, they’d better be willing to pay a steep price. Or so they say.
Golden State certainly knows that. And rumor has it that they do indeed have interest in acquiring Siakam before the Feb. 8 deadline.
ESPN wrote more on this topic:
“Any such trade for Siakam would likely have to involve Jonathan Kuminga and another player, such as Andrew Wiggins or Chris Paul. As one general manager told Marc J. Spears, there isn’t a lot of trade value in just sending Wiggins.
“ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said any team trading for Siakam would have to make sure he wants to stay since he will be a free agent at the end of the season. A team such as the Warriors therefore would need to consider payroll and willingness to hand the two-time All-Star forward a max deal.”
So, Siakam to the Warriors? It’s possible. But the Warriors have to ask themselves if he alone would be enough to help push them to another Finals run.
