Grade the trade: Warriors add a do-it-all star in a much-needed proposed shakeup

The Golden State Warriors have had a very mediocre start to the season. After starting the year 6-1, the Warriors are a putrid 9-16 since then, and have dealt with more headlines than wins recently. They have Draymond Green to thank for that, as he is currently suspended indefinitely for yet another action of unnecessary violence against an opponent.

After winning five straight games after the Green incident, the Warriors have since lost three in a row, and are not on the outside looking in in regards to the Play-In tournament in the Western Conference. It is time the organization faces the music and realizes this simple fact: this current version of the Warriors is not going anywhere. The core is maxed out, and they simply lack consistent firepower outside of Stephen Curry. Klay Thompson has gone from bona fide sniper to a  declining role player.

Andrew Wiggins has been a shell of himself on both ends of the floor and is on pace for the worst shooting season in his career. Green is a disaster waiting to happen, and we will see if he can fix his mental state before returning to action. The bottom line is the Warriors need to make a move to save their season and return to their winning ways. All they need to do is look North and go after an All-Star forward.
