Golden State and Brooklyn have agreed on a sign-and-trade, sending D’Angelo Russell to the Warriors on a four-year, $117M maximum contract, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 1, 2019
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.

The $17.2M Andre Iguodala salary goes into the $25.1M trade exception that will be created as part of the Mike Conley trade.— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) July 1, 2019
With Russell and Steph Curry in the Warriors backcourt, the team is expected to remain potent while Klay Thompson recovers from an injured ACL.
