Insider claims that a Warriors star has ‘had some flirtations’ with the Lakers.
From 2014 through 2019, the Golden State Warriors had one of the most amazing runs in NBA history, reaching the Finals five times in a row and winning three titles. Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green were at the epicenter of the dynasty. The three have remained together, although the Warriors have had it more difficult. Injuries have disrupted the team’s last two seasons, and it’s reasonable to wonder if they’ll ever rediscover their brilliance.
Curry, Green, and Thompson are all in their 30s now, and their partnership could be shattered as Golden State tries to reclaim their title. Green is the most likely to be relocated. Insiders believe he could end up with the Los Angeles Lakers. He’s a Klutch Sports client who works closely with LeBron James. Michael Scotto and Anthony Slater of The Athletic explored how long Green could stay with the Warriors on The Hoopshype Podcast.
“I suppose some people wondered whether the Lakers would trade for Draymond once he started going on The Shop more with LeBron James,” Scotto remarked. “It’d be strange if Steph, Draymond, and Klay weren’t on the same team.” It’d be nearly sacrilegious.”
“Steph, I believe, will be. Slater said, “Klay is locked in.” “You have to see how he appears now that he’s recovered from his Achilles and ACL injuries.” Draymond has two years left on his contract. He’s flirted with the Lakers and even the Blazers a little, as you mentioned.”

Would the Los Angeles Lakers make a move for Green?
Green isn’t going anywhere right now. The Warriors will try to recapture some magic now that Thompson is approaching a comeback from injury. If not, and the team has a poor season, it may be time to make some significant changes.
Green would be a good fit for the Lakers. The team has a lot of offensive talent, but they’re having trouble on defense. Green is still one of the league’s greatest defenders. When paired with Anthony Davis, the Lakers would have the best defensive duo in the league… Nokia News – Quick Recap
