The Golden State Warriors Are Trading For Kelly Oubre After Klay Thompson Injury

Looks like the Golden State Warriors are not staying put after news that Klay Thompson would be out for the rest of the 2020-2021 season with an Achilles tear.

They were heavy in the open market and are now adding Kelly Oubre Jr. to the roster, making a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

OKC acquired Oubre in a deal with the Phoenix Suns, which sent Chris Paul to the desert.

The deal puts the Warriors over the tax bill at egregious levels, at a whopping $82.4M. His salary plus the $68M in taxes gives them a ballooned bill.

How much will James Wiseman and Oubre Jr. help the Warriors next season?
