Siakam won't go to Sacramento. How about Golden State?

1. PF Jonathan Kuminga

If you could draw a player up on a board that was born to play for an Ujiri team (other than OG Anunonby), Kuminga looks like he's straight out of central casting. A 6-8 power forward with length and raw athletic ability, every coach dreams if getting a player like Kuminga to work with.

Where Kuminga differs from a player like Precious Achiuwa is his much higher floor on the offensive end. Kuminga has always shot over 50% from the field, but his versatility is what will ultimately bring him to such a rare, elevated tier that Ujiri might be tempted to move Siakam for him.

The Toronto Raptors could trade for Jonathan Kuminga.

Stop me if you heard this one before. Kuminga is a freakish talent with a limitless ceiling, but he won't reach it until he starts taking and making more 3-pointers. In his third season, his attempts remain stagnant and his percentage is starting to regress heavily. This will not stand under Darko Rajakovic.

If Scottie Barnes can go from a net negative to well above average in that area in one offseason, there's no reason why Kuminga can't become at least respectable in this area. If Toronto thinks they can crack this code, they might be more cavalier about sending Siakam somewhere else.
