The relationship between the Golden State Warriors and David Lee was coming to an end. With Draymond Green stepping up and the team playing so well, his days were numbered. As a serviceable big man, Lee still has good basketball years left in him.
The ten year veteran will now head back to the east coast, this time to Boston. In exchange, the Warriors received another NBA veteran, Gerald Wallace. Lee got along with everybody and is beloved teammate and more importantly, a brother. It’s hard to see him go but everybody knew it had to be done.
