D'Angelo Russell scored 29 points (9-for-19 shooting) including six 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in Friday's win over the Lakers.
Russell let it fly on Friday and this is exactly the type of performance we hope to see regularly during the regular season. Contributing in points, assists, threes and free-throw percentage – consider Russell in the top-50 of fantasy drafts.

D'Angelo Russell scored 23 points on 8-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's preseason match against the Lakers.
Russell played 27 minutes, which was near the 30 minute mark that the Warriors said they'd play him. He was one of the few productive Warriors players in tonight's game and should slot in as the second highest usage player behind Stephen Curry (rest) which means he'll be someone to target in the earlier rounds.

The Warriors are planning to give Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and D'Angelo Russell 30-35 minutes with the regular rotation around them in Friday's preseason matchup with the Lakers.
It looks like the Warriors are going to make their best attempt at a regular-season dress rehearsal here. DFS players take note.

Draymond Green and D'Angelo Russell (rest) will sit out Monday's preseason game with the Lakers.
With the Warriors likely to play harder during the regular season this year, they're getting extra rest when they can. Look for Omari Spellman, Marquese Chriss and Eric Paschall to play more up front while Jordan Poole and Jacob Evans log more time in the backcourt. Both Green and D'Lo will play on Wednesday, however.

Stephen Curry was the lone bright spot among Warrior starters in Saturday's 101-123 loss to the Lakers, as he provided 18 points, three rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer and two steals.
He was the only Warrior starter to crack double digits in the scoring department. D'Angelo Russell was noticeably quiet as he chipped in just four points on 2-of-9 shooting. Curry is going to have a lot riding on his shoulders this season and we expect him to rise to the occasion. The only question hanging over is his head is whether his ankles can handle the presssure.

According to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry, and D’Angelo Russell will all start together once Thompson comes back from his ACL injury.
This is obviously Kerr saying the right things but it remains to be seen whether that scheme could work defensively. The Warriors have a gaping hole in their small forward position and DLo could be traded at some point during the season in order to cover that need.

Bob Myers says that the Warriors did not sign D'Angelo Russell just to trade him.
Saying otherwise would surely draw the ire of the league and players association, so Myers' hands are sort of tied here. It's already been reported that the Warriors will try and move Russell when Klay Thompson returns, and that makes plenty of sense. That uncertainty is something to keep in the back of your mind when fantasy drafts open, but Russell is still going to come off draft boards in the middle rounds with a great opportunity in front of him while Thompson is out.

D'Angelo Russell said that he understands the NBA is a business and that he is not fretting about the rumors circulating about the Warriors potentially trading him in the future.
Russell was traded after two years as a Laker and will be playing on his third team in five years this upcoming season. It's nice to see the 23-year-old maturing and understanding that he can only control so much and the rest will take care of itself. Russell seems excited about this new opportunity and we'll see what the future holds for him.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Nets will receive a protected future first-round pick from the Warriors as part of the presumed D'Angelo Russell sign-and-trade.
The Warriors dealt their 2024 first-rounder to Memphis in the Andre Iguodala deal last night, so Brooklyn should expected to get a pick in 2022. The Nets got Kevin Durant and a first-rounder out of it, so it's a good deal for them, while the Warriors are rumored to be set on trading Russell at some point in the future. He now comes with cost certainty, so it'll be interesting to see when that deal comes down and what the Dubs will be able to recoup in draft capital.

Appearing on the Dan Patrick Show, Marc Stein of the New York Times said that the Warriors will look to trade D'Angelo Russell.
More exactly, "They will trade him. It's just a matter of when." Russell does not fit with the Warriors at all — a defensive tandem of D'Lo and Steph Curry would be brutal, Russell cannot play the three when Klay Thompson returns from his torn ACL and his four-year, $117 million deal means he isn't coming off the bench. The Warriors seemed intent on getting something in exchange for Kevin Durant, and now they'll likely look to flip Russell for additional assets. The Wolves and Lakers were also interested in Russell prior to last night's surprising trade.

The Warriors and Nets have agreed to a sign-and-trade of D'Angelo Russell, who has agreed to a four-year, $117 million contract.
This is an absolute stunner. The Warriors — if they keep Russell rather than flip him somewhere — add a serious up-and-comer to a backcourt that features two elite talents. Russell will help the Warriors stay competitive while Klay Thompson heals up, but the long-term fit is questionable after that. We'll see if there's another move coming. As the deal has been reported, the Dubs would also need to send back either Draymond Green or Andre Iguodala. The Warriors could just be trying to grab talent and sort it out later, but Russell just isn't a fit with the way they play. This is a wild one.

The Warriors and Nets are close to a sign-and-trade for D'Angelo Russell that would include Shabazz Napier and Treveon Graham, per Shams Charania.
We went from the Warriors regarding Russell as a player of "strong interest" to a deal being close in a matter of minutes. Stay tuned.

D'Angelo Russell is a "player of strong interest" for the Warriors in a potential sign-and-trade, per Shams Charania.
Wow. It was reported earlier that Kevin Durant could engage in a sign-and-trade as he works his way to Brooklyn, but the Warriors getting D'Angelo Russell would be a major development. It would be an interesting long-term fit with the Warriors obviously having their backcourt set, but Russell would be a nice addition while Klay Thompson rehabs his ACL or even be re-routed to another team. We'll keep you posted as this one develops.

Kawhi Leonard remains unsigned, D'Angelo Russell is a Warrior, Neil Rochlani is upset at many things, and Dan Besbris needs to buy a new boat.
