The Warriors don’t have the spare assets to engage in meaningful trade business before the deadline. Golden State also hasn’t made a single in-season trade since its championship run began with the 2014-15 season. No team, though, is likely to be more attractive to veterans who become free agents in February than the two-time reigning champions. One name to file away here: Chicago’s Robin Lopez. The Bulls have made Lopez available via trade along with the former No. 2 overall draft pick Jabari Parker, according to league sources, but moving the experienced center isn’t so simple given his $14.4 million salary.
