NBA Trade Rumors: Golden State Warriors Want Jabari Parker For Klay Thompson

The Golden State Warriors made a big move this offseason by acquiring all-star forward Kevin Durant. The move gained a lot of criticism as the franchise tries to build its superteam with 4 all-stars. Now there are NBA trade rumors spreading of the franchise wanting to let Thompson go in exchange for Jabari Parker.

Since their defeat in last season's NBA finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Thompson has been involved in the rumor mill since the Warriors were having problems for lack of front court presence. Andrew Bogut and Festus Ezeli were both traded to make room for Kevin Durant.

Now, there are NBA trade rumors spreading like Thompson being traded to Denver in exchange for players like Kenneth Faried, Danilo Gallinari or Gary Harris. Other rumors also say that Thompson will be involved in a three-way deal that would send him to the Celtics and that the Warriors would get Jimmy Butler.

In a report by Inquistr, there have been discussions of the Golden State Warriors dealing a trade with the Milwaukee Bucks. The trade would send Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney to the Bucks while the Warriors would get Khris Middleton and Jabari Parker. The deal meets the NBA standards of trade rules, according to ESPN's NBA trade machine, if ever the two teams would want to pursue this.

It would be beneficial for the Warriors as they would get young players who can score and defend. Parker, a 6'8" power forward and 2nd overall 2014 draft pick, averages 15.3 PPG and 5.5 RPG this season in his last 4 games with the Bucks. Middleton, a 6'8'' shooting guard, who is approximately out for six months averaged 18.2 PPG, 4.2 APG, and 3.8 RPG last season.

NBA trade rumors are always a fiasco and fans get hyped about these. Who knows what the Warriors would do but this deal would definitely be something if it plays out.
