The Golden State Warriors don’t make sense

When reports that Jonathan Kuminga was unhappy with his playing time and role in Golden State surfaced, potential trades started bubbling up. The Warriors want to win now and apparently don’t trust their young players consistently. 

They wouldn’t want draft compensation but veterans who can help them win now. The Kings, on the other hand, could use someone like Kuminga or Moses Moody on the wing and are willing to move Barnes and Huerter. 

Nevertheless, the Warriors are not a good trade partner for the Kings. They are reluctant to include Kuminga in a deal to get Pascal Siakam. If that is the case, they will never move him for anyone the Kings have to offer. 

Plus, how much of an upgrade would two young players with little playoff experience be over Barnes and Huerter (if he can hit his shots)?
