The Golden State Warriors are "dangling" both centers Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee on the trade market ahead of Thursday's trade deadline, according to Sam Amico of Amico Hoops.
As for the actual deadline, the defending champs are reportedly dangling center JaVale McGee and possibly center Zaza Pachulia as well. Interestingly, the Cavs wouldn’t mind getting McGee, supposedly available for cheap. But it’s highly unlikely the Warriors would trade him to the opponent they view as their one true rival.
Golden State has been in the market to upgrade their backup center position, targeting New York Knicks big man Kyle O'Quinn, who they feel can give them more defensive versatility.

Both McGee and Pachulia are on expiring contracts and the Warriors are hoping that a rebuilding team looking to maximize cap space this offseason is interested. The Knicks are thought to be one of those teams.
McGee averaged less than 10 minutes per game last season and was expecting a larger role this year, but that has not been the case. He is averaging 4.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 8.1 minutes per game this season.
Pachulia has started every game he has played in for the Warriors and is averaging 5.9 points and 5.0 rebounds in 15 minutes per game.
