Celtics almost traded for Jordan Poole?

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer
The new CBA is designed in part to hamstring big-spenders. And the Golden State Warriors are already making sweeping moves with cost in mind. Some details behind the Jordan Poole-CP3 deal, other ongoing trade talk, and more NBA Draft notes @YahooSports: sports.yahoo.com/2023-nba-draft…2:22 AM
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
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

Biggest thing I think people are missing about CP to Warriors: His contract is extremely tradable, much more than Poole’s. More inside:

The Wizards haul for Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis is actually great:

The Jordan Poole departure will be felt most for the Warriors during the marathon regular season. He played all 82 games this past season. Productive when Curry/Klay sat. Averaged 24.6 points as starter. Warriors were respectable 14-12 without Curry. theathletic.com/4633043/2023/0…4:56 PM

I was told the organization has a strong belief in Lester Quinones. And that there was a reason he around thru the end of the season.
This Poole move certainly opens up an opportunity for him to he can be a rotational piece next season. There are minutes to be had. – 4:45 PM

The Warriors are swapping Jordan Poole for Chris Paul in a stunning trade that can give the Warriors more financial flexibility beyond this season.

Sean Deveney @SeanDeveney
Much revealed about how teams value pricey players.
– Warriors could not create much market for Jordan Poole, took CP3.
– Same happened to Wiz w/Brad Beal.
– Teams like Marcus Smart two 1st-rders & Tyus Jones more than Brogdon.
– Still weak markets on Ayton, Zion, Siakam … – 3:46 PM
Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
You also have to wonder: Did Draymond Green deliver an ultimatum regarding Poole, such as “If he’s staying, I’m definitely gone.” – 3:45 PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Woo buddy. Wizards shut me up. Turning Bradley Beal into Jordan Poole, 6 second-rounders and 4 first-round pick swaps, while also getting Tyus Jones in a separate deal for KP, is not nearly as bad a return as we thought it was 24 hours ago – 3:42 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
Andrew Sharp @andrewsharp
Say what you want about Jordan Poole but he allows us to do what we never did with Nick Young, which is pay him 130 million dollars – 3:38 PM
Jason Dumas @JDumasReports
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

This feels a lot like a D’Angelo Russell move for the Warriors. Bad fit, but keep the salary slot with a moveable piece, which Poole might not have been after another 4 months of coming off the bench for the Warriors. – 3:35 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Notably, Chris Paul will actually make more this season ($30.8 million) than Jordan Poole ($28.7 million). Now, Paul is on an expiring deal, so Golden State saves long-term money… but the Warriors just added to their 2023-24 luxury tax bill. – 3:30 PM

Wizards now have seven guards 6-5 or shorter, but Poole is only one they are contractually obligated to pay beyond this year. – 3:29 PM
Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
I think as much bringing immediacy to the Warriors’ one-more-title quest, they get out from under that mistake of a contract to Poole. The prospect of four years playing like he did last year would sour anybody’s stomach. Paul’s deal is only guaranteed for part of next season. – 3:27 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
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 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

More on this storyline

In all of Washington’s trade talks, the Wizards told rival teams they were prioritizing short-term salary, sources said. Poole’s was the only significant future number that landed back on Washington’s books, which has led some opposing executives to wonder whether the Wizards will look to move Poole again at some point prior to next year’s trade deadline. For what it’s worth, Golden State is under the impression Washington intends to keep Poole, sources told Yahoo Sports. -via Yahoo! Sports / June 23, 2023
