Warriors trading Patrick Baldwin Jr. to Wizards as part of Chris Paul, Jordan Poole trade

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Madeline Kenney @madkenney
Can confirm the Warriors traded Patrick Baldwin Jr to the Wizards for the No. 57 pick, Indiana forward Trayce Jackson-Davis, as part of the Poole-CP3 deal. @ShamsCharania had it first. – 1:00 AM
Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
The Golden State Warriors will select Trayce Jackson-Davis at No. 57 and send Patrick Baldwin Jr. to the Washington Wizards. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2023/06/22/war…12:55 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
The Warriors, per @ShamsCharania, are essentially flipping the Patrick Baldwin Jr. roster spot (and first round contract) for Trayce Jackson-Davis on a cheaper second round contract. Older prospect. This part of CP-Poole trade will be judged on which player is better quicker. – 12:47 AM

At this stage in both of their timelines, the Warriors might be exactly what Chris Paul needs, and vice versa.

Brandin Podziemski is a quintessential Warriors player. Perfect fit for their system with his shooting, feel, toughness. Should get chances to play as a rookie but even if he doesn’t with so many guards and now Chris Paul there he should be ready for a heavy role by Year 2. pic.twitter.com/KW3l5epYLz10:20 PM

I understand the initial skepticism from Warriors fans, but I personally love this trade for Golden State. Solves a lot of problems for the team both on and off the court. The big question, of course, is whether Chris Paul can stay healthy. Worthwhile gamble given circumstances. – 4:38 PM

Albert Nahmad @AlbertNahmad
Suns only need to guarantee $25.0M of Chris Paul’s $30.8M 2023-24 salary to complete the Beal trade, but I’m guessing they’ll guarantee $28.1M, which avoids using Saric TPE, avoids Wizards from being hard-capped on GSW trade, and gives GSW has no financial incentive to waive CP3. – 4:17 PM

I’m told Chris Paul is playing for Golden State. This isn’t a part of another deal. CP3 is a Warrior – 3:41 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Tyus Jones suddenly makes a lot more sense for the Wizards now that Jordan Poole is there. Obviously Washington’s goal should be to let Poole handle the ball a lot, but probably best to have a real point guard next to him just to curb some of his ball-hoggiest tendencies. – 3:41 PM

Jordan Poole will have his cap hit adjusted from $28M to $27.5M now that all of his incentives are considered unlikely.
He’s the Wizards’ biggest financial commitment with $123M guaranteed over the next four years, but they still project to have around $70M in cap space in 2024. – 3:39 PM

Initial thoughts: This move doesn’t make the Dubs better in the regular season. CP3 is not an 82 game player anymore. Jordan Poole doesn’t miss games.
I can see the line of thinking that CP3 will be an upgrade from April-June. Warriors will need bodies to get them there tho. – 3:38 PM

A big trend that we’ve seen lately is that non-guarantees for guys who aren’t “worth the money” aren’t necessarily the death sentence it used to be, particularly if there’s a significant partial guarantee. CP the latest beneficiary. Mo Bamba and Malik Beasley could be next. – 3:32 PM

As it pertains to Lowry’s expiring $29.7 M: Though J. Poole’s contract became an unappealing one with his decline in efficiency, he did average 20.4 ppg & the Paul/Poole deal is another example of what expiring big $ PG contract can be parlayed into. (After Westbrook deal in Feb) – 3:27 PM

Jordan Poole AND draft picks for a 39-year-old point guard who likes a slow pace? – 3:16 PM

Jordan Poole has a $3.9M salary in the current league year but his extension raises his incoming salary from Washington’s end to $25.4M (poison pill provision).
Warriors would need to send out $18.7M to match for Chris Paul before June ends. Otherwise, this deal works in July. – 3:15 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Believe this trade will have to wait til Poole’s extension kicks in, in July, for the trade to go through. The 110% provision for teams above the apron in 2023-24 only is juuuuuust enough to accomodate Paul’s salary with Poole’s. – 3:15 PM

Chris Paul is going to win his ring as a member of the Golden State Warriors. Life is f’ing crazy! – 3:15 PM
Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2
I wonder if Washington would still take Anthony Black at 8 if he’s available, to pair him with Jordan Poole. – 3:14 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
CP3 to Golden State doesn’t make too much sense on paper, but you need to look at this as a salary dump not a move to improve. CP3 in Golden State is very interesting though – 3:14 PM
Cameron Tabatabaie @CTabatabaie
I don’t get CP3 to Golden State at ALL, but it sure is fun – 3:14 PM

Sounds like Jordan Poole will be heading to Washington in a deal that will bring Chris Paul to the four-time champion Golden State Warriors. – 3:12 PM

Have not heard his name at all until right now, from several sources, that Golden State is actively engaged in trade conversations regarding Jordan Poole. – 3:02 PM

More on this storyline

Make no mistake, this move doesn’t happen without Curry’s blessing and Paul’s acquiescence. Both are big enough stars to have killed this move if they wanted to. But team sources say Stephen Curry and Chris Paul are excited about their union, and that’s assuredly because they had a meeting of minds. No doubt, their rivalry has subsided over the years as both dribble towards their 40s. But mutual respect and appreciating the brotherhood doesn’t always mean teaming up. -via The Athletic / June 22, 2023
Jorge Sierra: No player with multiple All-NBA selections has been traded more times than Chris Paul. Five trades: Chauncey Billups, Glen Rice, Adrian Dantley, Six trades: CHRIS PAUL. -via Twitter @hoopshype / June 22, 2023
Patrick Baldwin, in his rookie year in the NBA will be the Grand Marshal for a race that is also making its debut this year at Sonoma Raceway.
