The Golden State Warriors have agreed to a four-year, $117 million sign-and-trade deal with the Brooklyn Nets for D'Angelo Russell.

Golden State must unload salary elsewhere to make this deal feasible as they are up against the hard cap, which could mean also trading Andre Iguodala.

Marc Stein of the New York Times reports that three sources indicate the deal remains done.

Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area reported that just because the deal isn't being publicized doesn't mean there is no deal.
