Insider: "Big, Big, Giant Decisions" Coming For Golden State Warriors

With less than two days until the trade deadline, many are wondering what the defending champs will do to fortify themselves for the stretch run, as they try to survive a month without Steph Curry

But according to NBA Insider Brian Windhorst, they'll have even bigger decisions to make this summer.

"I think the Warriors are headed for big, big, giant decisions. I just think they're going to happen in June & July, I don't think they're going to happen in February."

However, according to a report by Golden State beat writer Anthony Slater in The Athletic today, "the Warriors have “an increased willingness to engage in conversation and explore the idea of moving their younger, out-of-the-rotation players if a significant enough upgrade is offered.” 

James Wiseman and Moses Moody fall into that category of "out of the rotation players", but Jonathan Kuminga has emerged as a major defensive force for the Dubs, and is considered off-limits. 

Since Kuminga's return from injury nine games ago, the Warriors have gone 6-3 (even without Curry for some of it), with the team registering a league-leading defensive rating of 106.5 with Kuminga on the floor, and a near cellar-dwelling 119.0 when he's off the floor. 

We've got until Thursday at 3pm ET (Noon local time in San Francisco) to see if the Warriors are going to make even a small decision this week.
