Blazers get Warriors' Andrew Wiggins, Moses Moody for Jerami Grant

Blazers trade Grant to Warriors Moody, Wiggins

Bleacher Report's Zach Buckley pitched this idea, presumably as a way to give Golden State a player it sorely needs.

Swapping out Wiggins for Grant is a massive upgrade for the Warriors. Wiggins was a key piece of the team that won the 2022 title, but he's been half the player he was during that postseason, and that's being generous.

The former No. 1 overall pick averaged 16.5 points and 7.5 rebounds across 22 games that postseason, all starts. He was critical as a rebounder and defender who guarded the opposition's best player every night. He was the perfect low usage two-way wing Golden State needed to slide between Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Grant would be the 2024 edition of Wiggins, except a better offensive player in every way, which would be of huge help to this year's Warriors team that is too reliant on a diminished Thompson and Green.
