NBA trade deadline: D'Angelo Russell, Warriors' three best assets to move

NBA trade deadline: D'Angelo Russell, Warriors' three best assets to move

The Warriors walked out of Capital One Arena late Monday night with their three most available and desirable trade assets still on the roster. The head count included Alec Burks, Glenn Robinson III and D’Angelo Russell.

With the Warriors in pursuit of attractive draft picks, that could change before tipoff against the Nets on Wednesday in Brooklyn.

It most assuredly will change before the NBA trade deadline strikes at noon Thursday -- barring a last-minute case of second thought by the Warriors are their trade partners.

Here, in an effort to answer pertinent questions, is a closer look at Burks, Robinson and Russell.

Alec Burks

Age: 28. Turns 29 in July.

Height/weight: 6-foot-6, 214.

Position: Shooting guard, can also play at small forward.

Contract status: One year at the veteran’s minimum, $2.32 million. Becomes an unrestricted free agent in July.

Stats this season: 16.1 points per game (second among active Warriors), 4.7 rebounds, 3.1 assists. Scoring and assist numbers are career highs. Shooting 40.6 percent from the field, including 37.5 percent from deep, and 89.7 percent from the line.

What he brings: Nicknamed “Bucket,” Burks is a very good offensive player capable of scoring at all three levels. He can create offense out of isolation, either by dribbling into the paint, pulling up for a midrange jumper or finding a teammate. He has a very respectable 3-point shot. He’s prone to hot streaks (he shot at least 50 percent in 13 games) and cold spells (he shot 35 percent or lower in 15 games).

He is a solid but unexceptional defender. He takes a professional, low-maintenance approach into the locker room.

Teams known or speculated to have interest: Lakers, Rockets, Grizzlies.

Playoff-quality teams that have a need (in no particular order): Lakers, Thunder, Magic, Celtics, Grizzlies, 76ers, Rockets, Mavericks.

Chance he is traded: 95 percent.

Glenn Robinson III

Age: Turned 26 in January.

Height/weight: 6-6, 222.

Position: Small forward.

Contract status: One year at the veteran’s minimum, $1.89 million. Becomes an unrestricted free agent in July.

Stats this season: 12.9 points per game (fourth among active Warriors), 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists. All three numbers are career highs. Shooting 48.1 percent from the field, 40.0 percent from distance, 85.1 percent from the line.

What he brings: Robinson is a competent two-way player fitting the profile of a 3-and-D wing. An explosive leaper who is better playing within the team framework than in isolation. More of a shooter, as his stats indicate, than a scorer. Averaging 16.7 points on 60.0-percent shooting over the past three weeks.

Generally given the defensive assignment against the most dangerous big guard or small forward.

Teams known or speculated to have interest: Magic, 76ers.

Playoff-quality teams that have a need (in no particular order): Magic, Raptors, 76ers, Pelicans, Lakers, Pacers, Thunder.

Chance he is traded: 85 percent.

D’Angelo Russell

Age: Turns 24 on Feb. 23.

Height/weight: 6-4, 198.

Position: Combo guard, most comfortable at the point.

Contract status: Four years, $117.3 million, $27.3 million this season, rising to $31.4 million in 2022-23. Becomes an unrestricted free agent in July 2023.

Stats this season: 23.8 points per game (No. 1 among active Warriors), 6.3 assists, 3.7 rebounds. Scoring average is a career high. Shooting 43.3 percent from the field, 38.3 percent from distance and 78.0 percent from the line.

What he brings: Russell is a superior scorer with the ability to produce at all three levels, from floaters in the paint to midrange jumpers to pull-up 3-pointers. He is particularly effective working out of pick-and-roll actions, where his ballhandling and scoring/passing potential often puts defenders on their heels.

He came to the Warriors with a reputation for poor defense and has done nothing to dispute that. In an ideal world, on a superior team, D-Lo would be a Sixth Man in the mold of Clippers ace Lou Williams.

Teams known or speculated to have interest: Timberwolves, Knicks.

Playoff-quality teams that have a need: No playoff team is known to or expected to make such a major move at the deadline. Salary is a factor.

Chance he is traded: 40 percent (and rising).

What sporing event Warriors' Jordan Poole will miss watching most

What sporing event Warriors' Jordan Poole will miss watching most

Warriors rookie Jordan Poole has many interests outside of basketball.

If you follow him on Instagram, you know that he loves cats.

The 20-year-old enjoys watching movies and TV shows, and generally considers himself a homebody.

Poole also likes other sports, and when Wes Goldberg of the Bay Area News Group asked him which canceled or postponed sporting events he is going to miss, the Michigan product provided an answer that might surprise you.

"I love watching the college World Series, I definitely like watching softball as well," he said. "March Madness was going to be cool of course, but that’s basketball. The college World Series is something sports-related that I was really looking forward to."

How did Poole get into college baseball?

"I would watch the games when we were in school (at Michigan), go support my guys on the team, but I was really locked into the World Series," he answered. "Those games get pretty rowdy."

Last year, Michigan reached the College World Series for the first time since 1984.

The Wolverines advanced all the way to the championship best-of-three series -- winning Game 1 before dropping the next two to Vanderbilt.

Eric Paschall reveals Warriors teammate he'd quarantine with right now

Programming note: Relive Game 5 of the 2015 Western Conference Finals when NBC Sports Bay Area re-airs the Warriors' win over the Rockets on Thursday, April 2 at 8 p.m. PT.

Warriors rookie forward Eric Paschall is following the shelter-in-place rules.

He is practicing social distancing and doing his part to flatten the curve.

But if he had to quarantine with one of his Warriors teammates right now, who would he pick?

"Ohhhhhhh. Ummmmm. I would choose my man Ky Bowman," Paschall told Mark Willard of KNBR 680 on Wednesday night. "He's always in a positive mood. His energy is unmatched.

"Definitely Ky. Me and him live in the same complex so I could do that anyway. But definitely my man Ky. We'd be compatible."

It's safe to assume Paschall never thought he would be asked that question after the Warriors selected him with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

But the world has been turned upside down and here we are.

Lastly, Willard asked Paschall why he wears No. 7 with the Dubs.

"All the other numbers I used to wear were taken," the Villanova product said. "No. 11 -- obviously I can't get that one. Klay Thompson has it. No. 14 is retired, No. 24 is retired and No. 4 -- Omari (Spellman) had. But at the time, Quinn Cook had it.

"So I was just stuck with seven ... I'm gonna stick with seven because it's a new journey in my life."
