Joe Lacob recently took a victory lap over the Golden State Warriors’ trade in 2020 of D’Angelo Russell for Andrew Wiggins and a lightly protected first round pick that became Jonathan Kuminga.
“I thought it was one of the greatest deals, certainly maybe the greatest deal we’ve ever done,” Lacob started, presumably referring to his tenure with the team. “And one of the best I’ve seen in a long, long time. I thought it was a killer deal. I thought Bob [Myers] did an amazing job. I don’t even know how to put it strong enough.”
Wiggins has developed into an invaluable role player for the Warriors while Russell’s fit with the team was clearly clunky.
