The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor reported Wednesday that the Warriors and Bulls are discussing a trade that would involve the Warriors trading down to the No. 4 spot. In return they’d get Wendell Carter Jr.

Carter is a 21-year-old center who was the No. 7 overall pick two years ago. There’s no doubt Carter would help out on the defensive end with his 7-foot-5 wingspan and quick feet. This means the Warriors would most likely miss out on James Wiseman who if he’d played college ball last season, would’ve been the No. 1 overall pick. ESPN’s Marc Spears told Steiny, Guru and Dibs on Monday that a scout told him Wiseman is a combination of David Robinson and Chris Bosh.

But this could make sense for the Warriors if their plan is to get Deni Avdija who the Warriors are reportedly “infatuated” with. Avdija is a 19-year-old, 6-foot-9 small forward who last played for the Maccabi Tel Aviv of the Israeli Basketball Premier League and the EuroLeague. He’s a versatile forward with playmaking ability of a guard and has been compared to Danilo Gallinari. His shooting is worrisome, though.
