The crazy 6-player trade that would send Rudy Gobert to the Warriors!


It is now a fact, Rudy Gobert could leave the Jazz this summer. The pivot is not untouchable, even if we are still far from a potential exchange. It will take out the heavy artillery, and the Warriors probably have what it takes. A journalist even imagined a 6-player deal, which could do damage in the Western Conference.

Irreproachable this season at the Jazz, although he is limited offensively, Rudy Gobert has fulfilled his part of the contract. A big defense in the playoffs, and a rather positive general impact for his team. The problem is that the men of former coach Quin Snyder could not respond to the adversity of the Mavericks. It ends in disappointment for this workforce, which has not reached the conference finals in 8 seasons: in other words, for a franchise aiming for the title, it is very worrying.

A questioning is expected for the Jazz, which will have to find solutions in the future, such as a possible major trade. Donovan Mitchell? Untouchable. He is considered by the front office as the cornerstone of the project, which means that he will not leave, even in the event of a big offer. It’s something else for Rudy Gobert, which would be haggled over in a few discussions according to the big information of this Tuesday.

Change of franchise in the West for Gobert?

No news on the names of the teams, although it is known that the Bulls, as well as the Raptors, have expressed an interest in recovering the Frenchman. Another franchise could be invited to the party, and not least: the Warriors, who need a real pivot. Kevon Looney has shown great things, but the front office may want a marked improvement in this area. That’s good, the Salt Lake Tribune journalist Eric Walden, has already imagined an exchange.

Warriors recover: Rudy Gobert, Royce O’Neale

Jazz recover: Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga, Moses Moody

Already phenomenal Warriors are sacrificing bench depth to claw back exceptional defensive play, while the Jazz claw back an All-Star winger and a collection of lottery picks (one inside, two wingers) in return.

In reality, the Dubs recover two defensive pieces. Gobert is obviously one of the best, but O’Neale has proven to be excellent on this side of the court as well. Enough to build a real wall in Golden State, which will still have to sacrifice elements. But considering the counterpart, is it a problem? Maybe. Utah gets Wiggins here, an interesting profile alongside Mitchell, as well as the youth, enough to secure their future.

The biggest problem we can see here is for the Dubs. Sacrificing youth is an option, but not for Joe Lacob, who is the owner. The latter wants to ensure that these players embody the future of the Warriors, so sacrificing them is not a possibility according to the latest news. However, negotiations are not impossible this summer, especially if Golden State leaves without the title.

Rudy Gobert at the Warriors? That would definitely be an ideal fit. It remains to be seen if the Jazz is a seller, but especially if the Dubs are ready to make efforts to attract it. Negotiations in sight in any case for this summer, with perhaps a big surprise in the key.
