The Golden State Warriors already pulled off a big trade earlier in the season, but they clearly were not done. Late on Wednesday night, the Warriors struck a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers to land Steve Blake. The move helps give the Warriors the bench depth they need and it also allows the Lakers to move some salary around in the process.
It’s a huge win for the Warriors, and Twitter was abuzz after the trade went down late in the evening.
Steve Blake on his time in Los Angeles: “I’ve loved my time here. I always loved the support of the fans and the ownership.”
