It's not a secret that this season, the Golden State Warriors haven't been the same dominant team they were used to being since Steve Kerr took over. And even though they're above .500, that's just not good enough to make the playoffs in the Western Conference.
The Warriors made some interesting offseason additions but they haven't fared as well as they'd expect, and with Stephen Curry playing at an MVP level before suffering a tailbone injury, they're looking forward to adding more firepower ahead of the trade deadline.
And, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Warriors have already set their eyes on Atlanta Hawks' guard/forward Bogdan Bogdanovic, who recently signed a multi-year deal with them.
NBA Trade Rumors: The Warriors Want Bogdan Bogdanovic
According to multiple reports, the Warriors are trying to move Kelly Oubre Jr, and with Bogdanovic not getting enough minutes due to the Hawks' crowded rotation, he'd welcome a move out of the team.
For that purpose, the Warriors could offer Brad Wannamaker, Kelly Oubre Jr, and a protected first-round pick to try and land the former Sacramento Kings guard, a deal that would benefit everybody involved.
Atlanta is reportedly looking to add some defense and Oubre Jr is a better fit in that regard than Bogdanovic. The Warriors need another sharpshooter and Bogdan would be a massive boost over Oubre Jr in that aspect of the game.
Bogdan Bogdanovic is currently splitting minutes with De'Andre Hunter, Kevin Huerter, Danilo Gallinari, and - when healthy - Cam Reddish; and his production has taken a big blow for that situation.
And, while Klay Thompson's presence could be a problem for him next season, Bogdanovic could still have a huge role for Steve Kerr as the first guy off the Warriors' bench when the Splash Brothers are healthy again.
