Breaking: Warriors Agree To Significant 3-Team Trade

The Golden State Warriors, Detroit Pistons, and Atlanta Hawks reached a three-team deal ahead of Thursday’s trade deadline.

According to Chris Haynes of TNT and Bleacher Report, Golden State will send center James Wiseman to Detroit, who is moving forward Saddiq Bey to Atlanta.

The Hawks will give the Warriors five second-round picks.

Golden State expected Wiseman to lead a new era when making him the No. 2 pick in 2020. However, he only played 60 games with the team.

The seven-foot big man from Memphis missed all of last season with a knee injury. He’s played 21 games off the bench this season, averaging 6.9 points in 12.5 minutes.

Last in the Eastern Conference at 14-42, the Pistons will take a chance on the 21-year-old finding his footing away from a team harboring championship expectations.

Detroit parted with Bey, a 23-year-old averaging 14.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game in his third season. He’ll go to a Hawks squad fighting for playoff positioning at 27-28.

Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Atlanta also traded Justin Holiday, Frank Kaminsky, and two second-round picks to the Houston Rockets for Garrison Matthews and Bruno Fernando in a “cost-cutting move.”
