Eric Paschall's time with the Warriors has come to an end.

Golden State has traded Paschall to the Utah Jazz in exchange for a second-round draft pick, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday afternoon, citing league sources.

The Athletic's Anthony Slater reported more details, citing a source.

This move clears up a roster spot for the Warriors.

Golden State selected Paschall with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2019 draft.

The Villanova product averaged 14.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists over the final 24 games of his first NBA season, and landed a spot on the All-Rookie First-Team.

But he struggled to find a consistent role in Year 2, and ended up missing 29 of Golden State's final 32 games (and did not get off the bench in either of the play-in games).

"We were trying to fit him into this style that we play," general manager Bob Myers said in late May. "Steve [Kerr] had him at the five, and then it became a glut there. And so trying to figure out how he could play the four was a challenge. And I think Steve would acknowledge that.

"So for Eric it's about figuring out what Steve wants from him [and] what he can bring consistently. But it was so scattered -- whether it was James [Wiseman] coming or going in the second unit ... so it's a hard one. There's not an easy answer for it."

Paschall took to Twitter to issue a message to Warriors fans.

 

The 24-year-old is scheduled to make about $1.8 million next season before becoming a free agent.
