NBA Trade Rumors: Big Laurie Markkanen Trade Offer Revealed

We know that Utah Jazz star Laurie Markkanen has been in demand on the rumor mill this summer. What we now have revealed for us is what an offer would look like for the 7-foot elite scorer. Insider Brett Siegel of Clutch Points reports that one team has offered three first-round picks for Markkanen.

And what's more, he's also heard that the Golden State Warriors are a team that is in hot in pursuit of the Jazz star.  

"A multi-team trade in which the Warriors would deal Andrew Wiggins to acquire more draft assets for Utah in a Markkanen trade is a possibility", sources told Siegel.

Other assets the Dubs have to move, as he notes, would include Kevon Looney and Gary Payton II, both on expiring contracts, plus youngster Moses Moody. 

There is no word on if the Warriors were the team that offered the three firsts, but they are obviously a frontrunner in the sweepstakes to try to land Markannen, should the Jazz decide to move him. 

Golden State has already added Buddy Hield as a new Splash Bro. partner for Steph Curry in the backcourt, but bringing in the big star forward would add devastating size to the Warriors' attack.
