The Nets continue to surprise everyone this offseason with another unexpected move on Sunday night.
D'Angelo Russell is reportedly the crux of a sign-and-trade deal with the Warriors, reports The Athletic's Shams Charania. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski added the terms to the deal being four years, $117 million. The deal will also include G Shabazz Napier and F Treveon Graham from Brooklyn to Golden State.
The Nets extended a qualifying offer to Russell on Friday, as they looked forward to their splashes in the free agency pool. It was always expected that if the Nets landed Kyrie Irving, which they did along with Kevin Durant, that Russell's time in Brooklyn was over as SNY's Ian Begley has been reporting.
Williamson and the Pelicans are focused on having the top pick fully integrated into the franchise and its new additions this offseason -- as quickly as possible. USA has available pool of names to choose from even as players withdraw. https://t.co/8RZjRL1qyc- Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 22, 2019
