The Brooklyn Nets have pulled off an unexpected sign and trade, sending D’Angelo Russell to the Golden State Warriors on a four-year max deal.

The deal was done five hours after news of Kevin Durant’s decision to leave Golden State for the Nets.

In order to clear space for Russell, the Warriors have sent veteran wing Andre Iguodala and two first round draft picks to the Memphis Grizzlies.

With Russell and Steph Curry in the Warriors backcourt, the team is expected to remain potent while Klay Thompson recovers from an injured ACL.
