The Warriors traded Corey Maggette to Milwaukee in exchange for Dan Gadzuric and Charlie Bell. Maggette who has 3 years and close to $30 million dollars remaining on his contract heads to Milwaukee where he’ll be asked to do what he does best, score the basketball.
The Warriors get substantial cap relief as they save approximately $15 million dollars over the next three seasons as Gadzuric is in the final year of his contract and Bell has one more year remaining on his deal after this season.
With the addition of Gadzuric, the Warriors now have over $17 million in expiring contracts this season which allows them to broaden their scope and explore deals with various teams looking to unload salary.
Shipping Maggette to Milwaukee rids the Warriors of one of the worst contracts on their team and they can now focus their efforts on possibly moving Andris Biedrins who is coming off a disappointing season and looking to bounce back.
