New Acquisition D'Angelo Russell Posts Instagram Story Wearing Warriors Garb

Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets - Game Three

It didn't take long for D'Angelo Russell to move on from the Brooklyn Nets. The guard was recently traded to the Golden State Warriors, and he wasn't shy about sporting his new colors in public.

Russell was spotted wearing a Warriors hoodie, clearly content being on his third different team in his short four-year career.

Something tells me the contract he signed has something to do with that.

After being drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2015, Russell was traded to Brooklyn in a salary dump before the 2017-18 season, where he matured into an All-Star caliber guard during the 2018-19 season.

Russell averaged 21.1 points and 7.0 assists per game last season, being named to the All-Star Game for the first time in his career. He led the Nets to a surprising playoff appearance, where the team lost in five games to a talented Sixers team.

After speculation of a potential trade out of Golden State, it's looking more and more likely that Russell will be around for at least this coming season. With Klay Thompson expected to miss at least the first few months of the season, Russell has a chance to form a dynamic backcourt with Steph Curry in Golden State.

If all works out, Russell and Golden State could be right back in contention with the best of them out west.
