Warriors’ Jalen Brunson could sign a team-friendly $157 million deal…

Two years removed from their last championship, and fresh off of Klay Thompson‘s free agency exit, the Golden State Warriors are big-game hunting on the NBA trade market.

They made a run at luring Paul George to the Bay Area, and have since pivoted to pursuing Lauri Markkanen in trade talks. But if that endeavor falls short too, what then?

One option that could present itself is a trade for Cameron Johnson of the Brooklyn Nets.

Johnson is a career 39% three-point shooter, coming off of his fifth NBA campaign, and his second in Brooklyn.

He averaged 13.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in 58 regular-season games.

Wiggins is two years removed from his only career All-Star nomination. And the two years haven’t been kind to him or Golden State.

The 29-year-old saw a drop-off last season, especially. Wiggins averaged a career-worst 13.2 points per game on a 45/35/75 shooting split.

Now, amidst a dramatic retooling of the roster that saw Thompson leave for the Dallas Mavericks, the Warriors are trying to trade him, too.

Evan Giddings of 95.7 The Game reported as much on a July 6 broadcast.
