The Warriors made two minor moves at Thursday's NBA trade deadline, reportedly dealing Brad Wanamaker to the Charlotte Hornets and Marquese Chriss to the San Antonio Spurs. General manager Bob Myers also decided to keep Kelly Oubre despite heavy interest across the league.
The purpose of the Wanamaker and Chriss moves was to clear roster spots for the buyout market, as the return in both deals -- draft rights to Cady LaLanne and cash -- have no impact on this year's team.
Wanamaker fell out of the Warriors' rotation after struggling mightily in the first half of the season, while Chriss only played in two games before injuring his leg.
Here's how Twitter reacted to the Warriors' trade deadline day.

On keeping Oubre:
By not trading Oubre -- or James Wiseman or the Minnesota Timberwolves' top-three protected 2021 NBA Draft pick -- the Warriors kept all of their most prized assets at the deadline.
This was important to Myers and Co. as the Warriors hope to return to contention for good in 2021-22 while still making noise in the playoffs this season.
