Jefferson: Russell can create shots for Warriors (1:25)

Richard Jefferson likes D'Angelo Russell's fit with the Warriors because he can create shots, but Tim Bontemps thinks there will be defensive issues. (1:25)

In their most light-years-ahead move since signing in the summer of 2016, the Warriors managed without any cap space to land one of the top free agents on the market, a 23-year-old All-Star who could be part of the team's core beyond the careers of their star players.

But trading for D'Angelo Russell will come with a steep price for Golden State's roster and in terms of future draft picks. What does that mean for the Warriors and the other teams involved in this sign-and-trade deal?

The deal

Golden State Warriors get: D'Angelo Russell, Shabazz Napier, Treveon Graham

Memphis Grizzlies get: Andre Iguodala, protected 2024 first-round draft pick

Brooklyn Nets get: Kevin Durant, future first-round pick
