The Warriors tried to get LeBron James at the trade deadline

Currently tenth in the Western Conference (26 wins, 25 losses) and in the fight for play-in qualifications, the Warriors, 2022 NBA champions, are experiencing a particularly delicate season, after a decade of success. To reverse the trend, franchise owner Joe Lacob tried, 24 hours before the deadline, to recover the best scorer in NBA history LeBron James, according to ESPN journalist – always very well informed – Adrian Wojnarowski.

The transfer specialist announced that Joe Lacob, pushed by Draymond Green (friend of James with whom he shares the same agent), had tried to convince the Lakers to associate LeBron James with his long-time rival, Stephen Curry. The leader of the Warriors had interpreted a message from number 23 expressing his frustration with the results of his team as a desire to leave. But neither Lakers owner Jeanie Buss nor the “Chosen One” were inclined to make what would have been one of the biggest trades in NBA history.

The Warriors then reportedly had discussions about Alex Caruso (Chicago Bulls) and Kelly Olynyk (Toronto Raptors, ex-Utah Jazz), but nothing materialized. Winners of their last five meetings, Golden State is gradually moving up the rankings and is now positioned among the four teams qualified for the play-in, just behind… LeBron James’ Lakers.
