Might be a little premature since the deal isn't official.

Plus a traded player exception, which at least on the surface, seems far too complicated for me to research. Maybe someone with a higher NBA IQ like 32 could explain it like we're 5.

Edit: I think it means we're picking up the tab for someone else's contract. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I know nothing about Crawford but we've only given up Douglas which is nothing. I still think Brooks can develop into a pretty decent player. It doesn't look like Crawford is a PG(which we needed to help Curry) but he should add some offensive punch off the bench which will help. I think Crawford and Brooks is an improvement over Douglas but it wasn't the trade that I was looking for. My concern is that Curry is still doing too much and this trade doesn't give him the relief that he needs.

Marshon Brook was suppose to be the next big thing a few years ago. But He has regressed each season. I would take Bazimore over Brooks in the depth chart. Cannot wait to see Crawford in our rotation. He will fit right in.

Douglas didn't do much so hard to see any decrease from this trade, though it might take time away from the likes of Bazemore, as was said. Backup PG was the main issue and not sure it has been resolved here.

The Heat actually get a trade exception in this deal. Albeit, a small one.

The Warriors were still under the cap this year, after losing Landry & Jack for nothing, along with sending all of their big garbage deals to Utah for nothing but flexibility. The Dubs lost nearly $40 million in payroll from last year and only added back about $30 mil of it, so they had room to spend without fearing luxury taxation. Essentially, the Warriors swapped Douglas' contract for Crawford's and picked up Brooks as little more than a formality (although, on this team, with so many weapons and virtually no responsibility or pressure, I have a feeling we'll start to see Brooks - whose bombing at a 50% clip beyond the arc this year - take off again, like his debut season).

The Warriors needed two things going into this trade: a viable backup point guard who could orchestrate the offense in a way that Douglas never did (they're hoping it'll be Crawford; who averaged 6 assists in Boston as a part-time starter) AND a bench gun who could hit from the outside and take a little pressure off of Harrison Barnes (who was playing a lot of starters minutes with Iggy out). Besides a surprising surge in efficiency from Draymond Green beyond the arc, the Warriors' second unit was pretty terrible at hitting 3's (O'Neal, Speights, Bazemore, Douglas, Armstrong, etc). Brooks will be a guy who can spread the floor, making things easier for guys like Speights to work (Mo has seen a lotta tough coverage early because teams aren't afraid of the second unit from deep).

I'm excited to see these guys play tonight. Of course, I'm happy that Crawford is in the mix now, but I'm REALLY anxious to see how a change of scenery and a new role effects the once promising Marshon Brooks...

Crawford seems like he could be an outside gunner off the bench right away. Could be a piece that makes the team a little better, perhaps taking us to the top 4 in the West.

Pretty sure he plays suspect D. I agree with what you're saying, and we need offense on our second team. I say let the dude play.

I think the top six players should all play over 30mins at least, 35 average for Curry, Klay, Iguodala and Lee. Think you have to look to get the young guys disciplined and earn their minutes. I think Spreights has played much better the last couple of weeks or so and DGreen has had a pretty good season.

I would give Brooks a few minutes just to change the tempo a bit. But i wouldn't give him more than that until he proves it.
