In an article by Complex‘s Zach Frydenlund, a three-team trade is suggested involving Andre Drummond, D’Angelo Russell, and veteran point guard Jeff Teague.
“Call this a win-win-win for everyone,” Frydenlund wrote. “The Warriors season is already in disarray and trading D’Angelo Russell might be one of the only moves they can make to retool this roster that is already hard-capped. Steph and Klay are both hurt and Draymond is beat up. They’re not contending for a title this season, so why not shake things up and look towards the future. For the Wolves, they finally add Russell to this roster to pair with his good friend Karl-Anthony Towns, while the Pistons retool their roster and add a draft pick.”
Specifically, the Dubs would swap D’Lo for Drummond while the Pistons receive Jeff Teague, Willie-Cauley Stein, and a future 1st-round draft pick.
This addresses the need for all teams involved. The Wolves and Pistons need some help in the backcourt, and they would receive a significant upgrade in that department.
Of course, the centerpiece of the trade is Pistons star, Andre Drummond. Because the Warriors struggle with frontcourt depth, rebounding, and rim protection, Drummond would be the answer to their prayers. Through 10 games this season, Dre is averaging 21 points, 18 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks per game.
With a record of 2-7, the Dubs certainly have nothing left to lose at this point.
