Warriors could land D’Angelo Russell from Nets in Durant sign-and-trade?

The Golden State Warriors may not be walking away from Kevin Durant’s departure empty-handed.

Speaking Sunday on “The Jump,” ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said that the Dubs could land D’Angelo Russell from the Brooklyn Nets in a sign-and-trade for Durant. Windhorst did note though that such a move would be “complicated” as the Warriors could have to sell themselves to Russell, agree on a contract with him, then do the sign-and-trade.

The 23-year-old Russell, who was an All-Star last season with averages of 21.1 points and 7.0 assists per game to help lead Brooklyn to a playoff berth, is a restricted free agent for now after the Nets tendered him a qualifying offer.

The Warriors will have a need in the backcourt next year with Klay Thompson out with a torn ACL, and they are already working on other moves in the wake of Durant’s exit as well.
