I know. You’re thinking to yourself…WHAT? They just got him.
The Golden State Warriors somehow acquired D’Angelo Russell from the Brooklyn Nets and had to trade Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies to make the money work for it to happen.
But it seems he won’t be held on for too long by the franchise.
“D’Angelo Russell does not fit there whatsoever,” said Marc Stein of the New York Times on the Dan Patrick Show. “They just did not want to see Kevin Durant walk out the door with no compensation. … They will trade him. It’s just a matter of when.”
Russell is set to receive a four-year, $117 million contract from the Warriors. He was being courted by the Los Angeles Lakers and the Minnesota Timberwolves before he got traded on Sunday.
