When a team is struggling to reach its potential, it’s inevitably listed among trade rumors heading into the trade deadline. The Golden State Warriors’ struggles to begin the season have ensured they’ve been linked to a plethora of stars and role players over the past few months.
However, with the trade deadline just hours away, a lot of those rumored targets are now off the market, having been snapped up by other teams around the league. Some of those targets are high-end role players capable of being starters in the right situation. Others are ancillary deals to strengthen the team’s bench rotations ahead of the second half of the season.
The chances of the Warriors making a move at the deadline are looking slimmer by the minute. However, while deals are still able to be made, nothing should be ruled out. Still, knowing which players are no longer on the market is worth knowing. Here are the top three rumored Warriors targets that have already changed teams on Thursday (Feb. 8.)
Bojan Bogdanovic has been traded to the New York Knicks along with former Warriors wing Alec Burks. As such, he is one of the bigger names that had been mentioned with the franchise that is now off the table.
