The Golden State Warriors are on the lookout for a star to join their setup. Off late, a stunning move for starlet Bradley Beal has come up. However, the move will not be an easy one. After another below-par outing, the men in blue and yellow will aim to revamp their side in order to be title contenders again.

Having the 7th and 14th picks in the draft, the signs seem ominous for the rest of the league. Along with bringing in new talent, however, comes the need to offload players. A couple of names could be on their way out, including the young Kelly Oubre Jr. This will help accommodate the Warriors’ fresh buys.

The Warriors have been the talk of the town as the NBA Draft comes closer. In order to introduce new faces to the side, Steve Kerr’s team will have to let go of some players. 22-year-old Jordan Poole has shown sparks of brilliance, but perhaps nothing concrete has emerged out of the youngster. Juan Toscano-Anderson was pivotal in some games but may find himself exiting if the right buy arrives. Even James Wiseman, whom Golden State acquired recently with a lot of faith, does not have his spot sealed.

Some of them include Raptors‘ Pascal Siakam and Ben Simmons of the 76ers. Now, another addition has emerged.

“The Warriors’ trio of stars – Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson have made it clear to management that they want the franchise to focus on the pursuit of a championship, even to consider using their two lottery picks to get someone who can help immediately,” Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic wrote. “Should the Warriors go that route, Beal, the Washington Wizards’ guard who made third-team All-NBA, is deemed the best player.”
