3 potential P.J. Tucker trades: Golden State Warriors

This last potential trade is between the Philadelphia 76ers and the reigning NBA champions. Unlike the other moves in this article, this trade has more of a long-term perspective on it versus the immediate returns.

Like the Sixers, Golden State is in a win-now mode, but the 76ers have a longer window than the Warriors and it’s become clear that there are some young players who haven’t fit into what the Golden State wants to do. The Warriors have a complex offense and some of their younger talents might do better with a change of scenery.

Philly gets much younger with this trade but it might be better in the long term. It’s clear that James Wiseman needs a change of scenery and developing as a backup for Embiid would take a lot of pressure off him. Even if he can’t play for Philly this season in terms of development, the Sixers still have Paul Reed who they can lean on for minutes.

Moses Moody is a nice young 3-and-D wing that head Doc Rivers can develop in time. Getting a second round pick will help in building out the roster in the future. The Warriors get two solid veterans in Tucker and Montrezl Harrell who can come right into the rotation.
