D’Angelo Russell has become a bit of an enigma for the Warriors. Their dream is to have him play alongside Steph and Klay to form a formidable trio of shooters.
And while it seems easy to execute on paper, there may not be enough room in the backcourt to make it work. See, unlike Durant, D’Angelo isn’t nearly as effective with the ball out of his hands. He is at his best when he facilitates the offense. But is taking that control away from Curry really the way to go? What happens to Klay when he is forced to play out of his natural position?
Doubts about D’Lo’s future with the franchise have been rooted in response to these questions, and the rumor mill has continued to circulate with possible trade ideas involving the star guard.
