Warriors aggressively shopping Andrew Wiggins on NBA trade market, report says

The Golden State Warriors are acquiring a key member of their 2022 championship team this offseason.

The ringLogan Murdock of , citing sources, reported Wednesday that Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins will be “aggressively suspended” in trade talks.

Wiggins was arguably the Warriors’ second-best player during their last championship run. He averaged 18.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game in the 2022 NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics while playing exceptional defense against Jayson Tatum.

Since then, however, Wiggins has returned to his inconsistent ways. He struggled to find a stable role in the Warriors’ offense last season and averaged a career-low 13.2 points in 27 minutes per game. Wiggins is signed for the next two seasons and has a $30.2 million player option for the 2026-27 campaign.

Trading Wiggins is among the options general manager Mike Dunleavy Jr. is exploring this summer. Murdock also reported that Golden State is working to trade veteran guard Chris Paul, who has a $30 million non-guaranteed salary for 2024-25 that will be guaranteed Friday. Additionally, the Warriors have to make a decision on impending free agent Klay Thompson and are reportedly looking to acquire Paul George.

After a disappointing 46-36 season that ended in the play-in tournament, it appears the Warriors core surrounding Steph Curry and Draymond Green could look a lot different next season.
