By and large, Klay Thompson's first two NBA seasons have been a pleasant surprise for the Golden State Warriors and all the Dubs fans around the Bay Area. But for a Warriors team with aggressive ownership and a burning desire to vault its way into the conversation as one of the league's top contenders, it could take trading someone like Thompson or Harrison Barnes at some point to land the piece they need to get over the hump.

Thompson's name came up in the Warriors' trade discussions for Dwight Howard before Howard opted to sign with Houston, and we have to wonder if they could come up again next summer.
