After agreeing to a sign and trade with the Warriors on Sunday Night., D’Angelo Russell could be on the move again shortly. Marc Stein of Yahoo Sports said on the Dan Patrick Show, that the Warriors didn’t want to be left with nothing when Kevin Durant left for the Nets.
"De'Angelo Russell does not fit there whatsoever. They just did not want to see Kevin Durant walk out the door with no compensation. … They will trade him. It's just a matter of when." – @TheSteinLine on @dpshow

There are recently signed trade restrictions on NBA teams, so the Warriors will have him for a while. This deal was to help them in the short term while Klay Thompson recovers from injury. Golden State may look into trading him mid-season or at the end of the 2019-2020 season.
