Golden State Warriors are not a part of the NBA Orlando bubble as they won only 15 games this season and are at the bottom of the points table. The Dubs are held back by injuries where Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have only played 5 games combined. The Warriors traded D’Angelo Russel for Andrew Wiggins and now they need some players to return to the title contenders.
I m sure the Warriors are watching this bubble and saying to themselves they need make some moves….

Golden State has a $17.2 million trade exception and a guaranteed top 5 pick for 2020 draft. The Warriors would be keeping a close eye on several Bucks players in the Bubble. Here are the Warriors bubble trade targets from Bucks: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kyle Korver, Pat Connaughton.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is the running MVP and everyone including the Golden State Warriors would want him in their team. Giannis has an average of almost 30 minutes per game and he will also become a free agent after the next NBA season.

There are reports that the Greek Freak will leave the Bucks if they don’t win the NBA title this season. It would be a perfect opportunity for the Warriors to attract Giannis Antetokounmpo in their roster with a promise of becoming the NBA champions.
Kyle Korver can become the best shooter for the Golden State Warriors after the exit of Kevin Durant. The 39-year-old NBA star may retire soon but he can still average 6.7 points per game while playing only for 16.7 minutes average for the Bucks. Korver is shooting 41.5% from beyond the arc and it makes him perfect in the offense along with Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.
Pat Connaughton will become a free agent this Summer and the Golden State Warriors could use him as a solid backup. Even though Connaughton has not a good average, he is amazing within the arc with a shooting percentage of more than 60. Pat Connaughton is only 27, tall and athletic, he could be a good addition to the Warriors’ bench with proper training.
