After a big win against Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James, Golden State Warriors will try to clean their roster and give an opportunity to younger players like Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney.
Bell had a very impressive night with 8 points, 6 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block in 26 minutes, and Steve Kerr will use him for the small ball lineup.
At this moment, Zaza Pachulia will remain as a starter, but JaVale McGee doesn’t have enough minutes on the court, he didn’t play against the Cavs and he is not happy about that.
However, according to Marcus Thompson of The Athletic, Golden State Warriors have discussed a deal with Milwaukee Bucks for the JaVale McGee.
He is averaging only 8 minutes per game, and maybe the Bucks will be the better opportunity for him. They have only John Henson and Thon Maker on the center position, but it’s still unclear what is a trade offer for him.
The Bucks also asked about a veteran center Zaza Pachulia and a very impressive youngest Jordan Bell, but they are unavailable at this moment.
Bell will probably become a starter in the future and with Draymond Green and Kevin Durant, these three players can cover almost every position on the court.
Steve Kerr probably have the best small lineup in the league and JaVale McGee is clearly not in the rotation plan. It’s just matter of time when he will be traded and we will see is Milwaukee Bucks the only potential destination.
