The Golden State Warriors currently sit as the 12th seed in the NBA’s Western Conference. Could they do something drastic to improve their season, like move on from Klay Thompson?

The NBA’s trade deadline is a little under two weeks away. As we get closer to Thursday, Feb. 8, more rumors will surface. The Athletic’s Shams Charania is reporting that if another team reaches out to Golden State about one-half of the Splash Brothers, the organization may listen.

“They’re going to take calls on Andrew Wiggins, Chris Paul, and could they get interest on a guy even like Klay Thompson? I think those are very much open conversations for the Warriors,” Charania said on FanDuel’s Run It Back. They have to be open-minded. This is a team that’s five games under 500, in that 12th spot. So we’ll see if there’s going to be any moves over the next 10 days.”

Charania went on to say the Warriors consider Stephen Curry untouchable and young players like Jonathan Kuminga and Brandin Poziemski, “as part of their core moving forward.”

The 33-year-old guard/forward was selected by the Golden State Warriors with the 11th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. In his career, he’s averaged 19.6 points, 2.3 assists and 3.5 rebounds.

Golden State are 3-7 over their last 10 games, sitting outside the NBA’s Play-In tournament.
