As Iggy said earlier in the week, "Nobody's going to the Knicks. Nobody."

The Knicks look like fools letting Durant go to the Nets, Stephen A went off when he heard the news yesterday.....

The amount of money some of these guys are getting is just stupid.....

160-200 million guaranteed......wow

Yeah, the Warriors still have some moves to make. D'Angelo Russell is very good, but not what the Warriors need. So I think he will be moved elsewhere. I was not happy to see Iggy go (to the Grizzlies), but from a business standpoint it probably made sense, given his salary, age, and also the fact that he needs to be used somewhat sparingly during the regular season. That was fine with the Warriors up until now, but with no Durant and Thompson out for a good portion of the regular season, they Warriors need some guys who an play big minutes during the regular season....

Yeah, I think that's a big part of it. Curry was/is always going to be the fans' favorite. KD probably didn't enjoy hearing Warriors fans chanting "MVP, MVP!" when Curry was taking free throws..... And the vast majority of Warriors fans were big fans of KD, but he wasn't their very-bestest favorite....

I don't think KD's little spat with Draymond Green, earlier this past season had THAT much to do with it, but it didn't help.

This isn't based on talent comparison, but Warriors fans are probably as sad about Iguadala being traded, as Durant leaving (if not more so).

KD is taking a non-trivial pay cut to play in Brooklyn, so it wasn't money that led him there....

Given that he is probably out for all of next season, it will be interesting to see what we all make of the situation two seasons from now....

It's still not clear in my mind what the Warriors real intent is, with respect to D'Angelo Russell. He has real value for them while Klay Thompson is out (first half of next season?), but after that he will seemingly be under-utilized.... But when to try and get something for him is the tough question.

The other interesting question is what aging bigs can the Warriors sign, for the minimum. I've heard Tyson Chandler and Nene both mentioned. They might even consider the return of Zaza Pachulia.... Apparently Bogut is committed to return to the Sydney Kings. And the amount of money the Warriors could pay Boogie Cousins is maybe not enough to keep him, even if he's not attracting too much interest from other teams. More to the point, signing him would leave too little money left for the other open roster spots.

WTH? Nobody saw this coming. Everyone knew the Clippers had a shot at Leonard but after George resigned with OKC last year, he hadn't even been mentioned as a possibility this off season. Wow, the Clippers just became the favorite to win it all next year. They probably won't because they're the Clippers but man, what a move. The Clippers!
