I have a trade proposal that is beneficial to two teams: the Golden State Warriors and the Indiana Pacers. First off, this trade will only work if Bradley Beal falls to the 7th spot, (as he is projected per nbadraft.net). I know mocks will consistently change up till the draft, but if he falls, then this trade can take place. Warriors trade Bradley Beal, Richard Jefferson, and one second rounder for Danny Granger.
Why Indiana Does This: The Pacers already have their small forward of the future with Paul George, and are looking for a good, young shooting guard to pair with him. They have been linked to Eric Gordon numerous times, but now I strongly believe that Gordon will sign the extension given by New Orleans, especially since Anthony Davis is on his way. The Pacers with this move can move George to his natural position, and also can a good veteran and locker room guy with Richard Jefferson. They might however, not want to move a core piece, since they just got to the semifinals.
Why the Warriors Do This: Many claim the Warriors biggest need is the small forward position (even though a big man is needed more in my opinion). This trade gives the Warriors a great scorer and a leader to pair with Curry and Lee. He can be great for the Warriors, with his scoring and his (average) defense. Also, even though we kill our cap with this trade, we can draft Ezeli with our other first rounder and/or sign someone with the MLE.
Let me guys know your thoughts.
