The Lakers have agreed to trade point guard Steve Blake to the Warriors in exchange for guards MarShon Brooks and Kent Bazemore, according to multiple reports.
Yahoo Sports and the Los Angeles Times both reported the dealĺs terms on Wednesday in advance of Thursdayĺs trade deadline. The Warriors possess a trade exception that facilitates the agreement.
Blake, 33, is averaging 9.5 points, 7.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 33 minutes per game over 27 appearances for the Lakers, although he has missed time this season with an elbow injury. The 11-year veteran is making $4 million this season in the final year of his contract.
Brooks, 25, has averaging 2.6 points in just 17 appearances for the Celtics and Warriors this season. Acquired by Golden State from Boston in a three-team trade that also landed Jordan Crawford, Brooks is earning $1.2 million this season. The third-year guard did not have his rookie option picked up for the 2014-15 season.
Bazemore, 24, is a seldom-used guard most known for his standout play at the Las Vegas Summer League. The second year guard went undrafted out of Old Dominion and is averaging 2.3 points in 6.1 minutes per game over 44 appearances this season. He is in the final year of a minimum salary contract.
