GS doing a S&T means they'll be hard capped at the apron. Going to be extremely interesting to see how they maneuver around that. It's going to be a challenge. I'm sure they have a plan though but it could mean a guy like Looney needs to be let go.

Thats kinda odd. Dlo needs the ball in his hands to be effective. He's an awful defender and can't play off ball. I guess Dlo . It'll work sorta until klay gets here then .....

Super interesting. Major for the Warriors next season as a stop-gap for Klay. They'll still be a mid/high seed despite a middling at best defense.

Where it gets tricky is when Klay comes back. But that's a problem for another day.

Regardless, It's a HUGE win for the Warriors as an asset if nothing else. KD and the Warriors do each other the solid. Ends the partnership on a high note.

Who plays the 3 for the Warriors? No Durant, not Iggy, MicKinnie is it. Klay may have to play the 3 when he comes back with D Lo at 2 and Curry at 1. Defense not as strong, but better than starting the rookie Poole with McKinnie.

Iím sure theyíll look to add a vet 3 and D for cheap if they can. McKinnie will play and theyíll likely also use Jacob Evans and Jordan Poole. Both are 6í6 guards who shouldnít have an issue playing the 3 in todayís small ball world.

Russell is a better fit because he's bigger and a better perimeter shooter + playmaker (and won't think he's the #1 option like Monte), but he's still not a good fit imo. I don't want him on the team long term.

Yeah, I don't like it much.

Honestly I feel like if you just give Curry 30 shots a game they'll probably be better off. If D-Lo is gonna work he's gonna have to learn to play within the system. Durant is the most talented/versatile scorer in the league and there were times when it seemed like even he slowed down the ball and got them out of sync - I can't imagine how it would be if a much lesser player in D-Lo was trying to play hero ball.

Spread what money out? If KD walked the warriors were still over the cap. We wouldnít have any money to spread out. Iím not sure how Dlo will fit in just yet but heís a good player and itís 100% better to get him then nothing at all.

It will be interesting to see if he can buy in and fit the system but no KD or Klay and we need scoring to come from somewhere other than Curry. Dlo is talented and has the size he can play the 2 spot next to Curry. Itís not ideal but we go something where we could have had nothing. Itís now on Kerr to make it work.

They had no money to spread; this gets them close to the tax line this year; from 150-200 million in LT if they kept Durant or left w/o sign and trade to 10M+/- in LT

Thing is.... warriors were over the cap either way when durant left. Considering the restraints of their situation..... what they were able to pull off really wasnt anything short of a miracle. to get a 23 yr old all star out of their situation. I realize he doesnt play the ideal position...... but this is how a competent front office hopes to handle a scenario where losing a top 3 player in the game for nothing is the only other alternative.

They could not have used the money to sign 2 or 3 role players (Unless the Nets were willing to part with their rotation players)

And if Durant resigns and they win they probably eat it, but Durant leaving, Klay injured, with no cap space and large tax bill, making the trade to force them under the cap gives them a LT reset so its hundreds of millions if they don't get back in the tax until 20-21 or 21-22.

On a side note though- not sure russell fits the culture in golden state. hes the type of guy who is getting into Jr High drama with his team mates..... hes gonna be dming klays instagram gfs about him hookin up with a girl on the road..... thats kinda russel's style


we will see how things work out.

Nothing at all like that in the past two years. DLO is a talent and just coming in to his own. Heís a great and willing passer, so he would be perfect for the Warriors ball movement. Heís not Durant, but he will take pressure off Curry and provides the all important third quality scorer.

I think the Warriors with DLO will still be a force, and I hope he sticks.

Though I still think this is really to get the Warriors into the Kswhi sweepstakes. And Kawhi would be stupid to choose the Lakers over GS.

Thatís an interesting take. I donít see how DLO gets us into the Kawhi sweepstakes. Thereís next to zero chance he comes to GS.

They can flip DLO to Toronto in a one for one trade. No waiting required.

Russell won't play a single game in a Warriors uni

Who do you expect they could get for Russell? Players that aren't as good as him? it would be pointless for the Warriors to deal him

I wanna see Russell play for the Warriors. Heís a taller and far better player than Monta Ellis. Other than, those two shouldnít be compared

If they can somehow bring in some tough 3-D guys and veteran shot blocker, I think this team will compete for championships.

This is of course assuming Russel can actually play championship style basketball

They acquired him in a trade and can flip him right away in a one for one trade.

That isn't true.

"For sign-and-trade transactions, the initial trade which completes the sign-and-trade obviously is allowed, even though it occurs right after the player is signed. The trade restriction in a sign-and-trade applies to the first subsequent trade."

Theyíre going to flip DLO for Kawhi. One to one trade.

I donít see GS falling off. They beat the Blazers without Durant. They added Dlo which is better than Harrison Barns. They just need to put roll players around them and they should be as good as they were without Durant the first time...by playoff time next year anyway.

Correct or January 15th if he qualified for BYC, which I'm unsure if he did but the earliest of December 15th is when he will be trade eligible, no sooner, potentially a month later.

LOL Tre said, "so if the Warriors make HCA, I guess that means he's the GOAT"? And Tre wasn't talking to you by the way. It was a response to something MTM said. And I was just making fun of him. But that said, it would be absurd if they were HCA.

@IknowHoops, I agree, but not this year (until potentially March) with their current roster. No Klay, no small forward, and no bench. They're going to need those things in order to remain a contender (no reason why that shouldn't happen after they deal Russell).

If Klay comes back, D'Lo his numbers will go down considerably because he is a high volume shooter/high volume player. No way D'LO stays in Golden State because in Brooklyn he was "The Guy" and now he goes to Golden State and becomes a co star. Ain't no way D'Lo puts up with that. I say D'Lo needs to be on a team where he can be The Guy.

i guess I dont see why people say DLO will be traded by the end of the season.


I get the theroy on the basketball court and making a team.

But GSW has had enough bad PR with these finals (part of the reason GSW took out the full page ad congratulating the Raps), and I doubt DLO signed just to get traded by the end of the season

plus that would send a message to future FA's who may consider signing with GSW that other teams would exploit.

He came over in the Durant sign and trade. Looks like he couldnít get a max from anyone (Minny tried but couldnít make it work). The Nets didnít have to send him and those other two guys out but they did DLo a favor so he could get his money and GS didnít lose KD (and that cap space) for nothing. Looks to be a Win/Win for everyone involved.

I don't think the bad press the Warriors had for playing KD has any bearing on what they're planning for D-Lo (they answered that pretty clearly in saying 3 teams of doctors ... one of which was KD's... + KD all signed off on him playing, just bad fortune). They helped Russell out and got him a max contract in return for an asset (him). Something KD and his team had to help them out with by the way (clearly showing no ill-will to the Warriors). They obviously don't owe Russel anything and I don't think players are dumb as it pertains to the NBA business. They understand why both sides did what they did and it's not like GS recruited him.

The congratulations ad to the Raptors is just what the Warriors do by the way. They did the same for Cleveland.

Yea, I can't comment exactly how the kd situation went down, but he seems to have done a favor on the way out which makes me think they aren't on bad terms.
