The speculation surrounding a trade for San Antonio Spurs center Jakob Poeltl has been something to monitor this offseason
Trade ideas tend to run amuck this time of year. And while Poeltl’s future is uncertain in San Antonio
it’s an interesting thought to see what the Spurs could get in return for him ahead of next year or before the mid-season trade deadline.
With the Spurs in a position to get younger, dealing Poeltl for budding talent and draft stock could help the team secure a better future by trading the Austrian center at what might be highest value
Bleacher Report revealed a scenario that would give the Spurs exactly what they're searching for by sending Poeltl to the Golden State Warriors.
As the defending champions, the Warriors certainly aren't in a dire need to make any trades
but securing an elite interior defender like Poeltl would help bolster their defensive frontcourt on the path toward repeat titles.
The Warriors may feel like giving up a young player like Wiseman and two future drafts picks would be risky considering the booming potential and versatility he possesses.
Golden State did use the No. 2 overall pick on him in 2020 for a reason. And despite his early injury issues, Wiseman is finally coming around to returning to the court
In 39 career games with Golden State, the 21-year-old 7-footer has show All-Star level potential, something he can reach once he continues to develop into NBA form.
