NBA Trade Rumors: Proposing a Warriors, Nets trade to swap Klay Thompson for Kyrie Irving

So now that it’s past the December 15th deadline, teams can start making trades.

Let’s make one involving two of the better teams in the NBA with players who haven’t played a single game yet this season.

This deal involves the Golden State Warriors and the Brooklyn Nets.

Kyrie Irving would run into the same issues he’d have in New York, so he’d have to get the vaccine, which in really, he should because he’s a professional and should just get it and be done with it.

Klay Thompson is another story, as he’s been on the mend from missing two straight years of knee injuries that has forced him out.

So if the Warriors and Nets want to be bold and daring and make a one-for-one swap that would implode the NBA, it would be fun to see how this would go.
