“As part of a six-team trade that sends four-time NBA champion Klay Thompson to the Dallas Mavericks via a sign-and-trade, the Warriors have acquired forward Kyle Anderson from the Minnesota Timberwolves and guard Buddy Hield from the Philadelphia 76ers in sign-and-trade deals,” Warriors PR wrote in the caption of a post featuring the team’s official announcement on July 6.

seeing their playing style as a child. The players that surround them, including Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Andrew Wiggins, and the manner they coach. The way that Steph plays,” Hield remarked, as reported by Jablonski on July 5.

Observing Klay Thompson as well. I’ve always been a huge admirer of his, and I frequently seek his counsel. I feel that my game fits their dynasty and style of play better just by looking at it. Quick passing, cutting, and ball movement force the defenses to make choices. I believe I can improve my skills and learn a lot by going there.
Hield made his first postseason appearance with the 76ers this past season.
Throughout their first three games, he was seldom used, playing a total of 14 minutes in Games 1 through 3.

Hield scored 20 points in the Sixers’ pivotal Game 6 defeat to the New York Knicks in the first round, including going 6-for-9 from deep after missing two games. As part of the agreement, he signed a $21 million, three-year contract. Anderson agreed to a $27 million, three-year contract.

“We asked a team early on, and you know how it goes, if they don’t want to re-sign you. According to Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports in March, Hield stated, “It’s the game.” They say they want to sign you, but when that doesn’t work out, the phone calls stop and it feels like you’re talking to a wall with no one answering. However, from that point on, you are bound by a contract that you must, well, uphold. Thus, it’s one of those situations where professionalism and daily attendance are required. However, I am aware that the atmosphere was very different.
Originally selected by the Sacramento Kings with the sixth overall choice in the 2016 draft, Hield was acquired by the Pacers as part of a 2022 trade that also included guard Tyrese Haliburton.

Security results from this trade for Hield. For the Warriors to make it back to the postseason, they need him.
