NBA Trade Rumors: 5 teams Giannis Antetokounmpo could end up with (cont.)
The NBA trade rumors have suggested that Giannis Antetokounmpo will choose an NBA championship contender as his next destination. It would be interesting to see if he will leave the Eastern Conference or not.
#3- LA Clippers
The LA Clippers have arguably the best team on paper in the NBA. They have two superstars in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George with the Sixth Man of the Year award-winning duo of Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell complementing them off the bench.
However, with Paul George having injury issues in the past, the Clippers would like to add a more durable player to their roster. Giannis would be the organization's natural choice, given the fact that the reigning MVP will be a free agent. NBA trade rumors also point towards the likelihood of this happening.
#4 - Golden State Warriors
Loaded with draft picks and role players, NBA trade rumors suggest that the Golden State Warriors will go all out to get a third star to pair him up with the splash brothers duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
The Warriors have the second pick in the 2020 draft and will not hesitate to trade it for the reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo might himself push for a trade to the Warriors, considering the organization's history of winning championships with multiple stars. Mutiple NBA trade rumors point towards the fact that the Warriors are planning to form a big three again.
#5- New York Knicks
The New York-based franchise has been looking to trade for a star player which can be the team's face for years now. After trading Latvian power forward Kristaps Pozingis to Dallas Mavericks and losing out on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in free agency, it should not be a surprise if the Knicks offer Giannis Antetokounmpo a blockbuster offer to convince him to join. NBA trade rumors suggest that the Knicks will be looking to make an offer to him as soon as free agency starts.
