With the problems of Los Angeles Lakers since they won the ring, added to the constant injuries that weigh down Anthony Davisthe possibility of a very crazy blockbuster would have arisen: AD to the Golden State Warriors.

Without a doubt, it would be a joint that would revolutionize NBA and would excite all the neutral fans. We would have one of the best players in the league, one of the most pure talented interior players in history, complete in attack and defense, who would join one of the best teams, champions in 2022.

If there is any “but” to the Warriors dynasty in these 8 years, it is their weakness in the game inside, especially in attack. La Ceja would solve that “problem” directly. Seeing how everyone who arrives in the Golden State behaves and adapts (see Andrew Wiggins), if they get the 7-time All-Star and he adapts well too, the great domination would undoubtedly return.

Although clearly, a player of that caliber would not come so easily. The Chicago-born power forward still has 2 years left on his contract, plus a $43 million player option in the 2024/25 season (I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say he looks like he’ll take it). Taking into account that the Golden State Warriors is the franchise with the highest salary mass in the entire league, they would have to include several players in the transfer.

Who could do the reverse fate?

For salary, the only options to trade player for player would be Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Unlikely. On the other hand, little has been said about Draymond Green in the NBA rumors with the Detroit Pistons. Another realistic option would be Andrew Wiggins. The problem for the Lakers is that both Wiggo and Dray are out of contract in 2023. Green has a $27.5 million player option for 2023/24.

Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody It seems that they would be clear candidates to be part of it. Both are talented young players, with different qualities, and who could contribute to many teams in the future.

Finally, Kevin Looney He is the one with the longest guaranteed contract time (removing Steph Curry), because he has renewed this summer.

Likewise, Loon’s 8 million salary plus Kuminga and Moody would still be far from equaling that of Anthony Davis.
