That Wolves trade is totally done.

    So, if they end up around where the projections have them making the bottom half seeding in the playoffs they would have a reasonable shot at someone like Kendall Brown from Baylor or Mouhamed Gueye from Washington State. That would have the front 3 being VERY athletic with huge potential.
    Which is why you hope that the Warriors either don't make the playoffs or they are in that play in position in the standings to have a chance at those players

    If they are a mid-seed in the playoffs they would have a shot at them which is what I said.

    Yep. When he gets hot it's like the defense literally doesn't matter. Klay gets hotter but not as often.

    steph also has the ability to run the offense at an elite level if he wants. Klay hopefully still has the ability to stay with any guard in the league.

    Also hoping Klay can get back and be the All NBA talent that he was before the injury but not being able to play for 2 years, will he even resemble what he was?

    Sure. I think the offense will probably come back fine. The defense is more of an open question. He is helped in that he wasn't an explosive quick twitch athlete before the injuries and that's where most is lost on those kinds of injuries.

    Exactly well Klay doesn't rely on athleticism but since he is a catch and shoot guy I wonder then won't teams just scheme for that

    You mean like they've been doing his whole career? Sure.
