If Jazz forward Joe Ingles is indeed available for trade, sources say the Warriors do have interest โ€” just no good way to get him. Ingles, approaching 34, fits the Warriorsโ€™ need for a veteran and another offensive playmaker. His passing would fit perfectly with the Warriors. He can run point forward and spot up off the ball, making him viable with the starters and the second unit. Heโ€™s got 45 playoff games under his belt. He shot a career-best 45.1 percent from 3 on a career-high 6.1 attempts per game โ€” his third season at 44 percent or above. Heโ€™s also reputed for being a great guy and would add to the culture of the locker room.
The most viable option to get Ingles is to see where Oubre Jr. signs and try to convert it into a sign-and-trade. In that scenario, the Warriors would get a traded player exception in exchange for Oubre and they could use that exception to get Ingles, if he is available. But thatโ€™s adding $13 million (plus the repeater tax) to what is already the leagueโ€™s highest payroll. Ingles is good, but is he good enough for Lacob to stomach the added cost? The Warriors could keep the TPE for potential use later, but the same question would come up.
