According to NBA Insider Tom Haberstroh, the 2018 champions are looking to add New Orleans Pelicans' Jrue Holiday. The 2013 all-star averaged 19.1 points and 6.7 assists this season.

There were already NBA trade rumors about the Pelicans looking to trade Jrue Holiday in exchange for a younger star. But the Golden State Warriors might have to give up considerable assets to acquire the 30-year-old. Tom Haberstroh said in this regard:

"He's not going to come cheap, so in order to get someone like Jrue Holiday, you'll have to give up assets, and certainly David Griffin would be asking for a boatload of whatever the Golden State Warriors have."

Aside from Jrue Holiday's playmaking abilities, he's also an elite defender and can guard multiple positions in the perimeter. If the Golden State Warriors are able to pull this trade off, Steph Curry and the crew will definitely be the team to beat in the West.
