After a delay in announcing it due to a logjam at the league office, the Golden State Warriors have traded Charles Jenkins and Jeremy Tyler for a pair of second round picks in what can only be described as a salary dump.
Well, in a very late turn of events, it looks like the Warriors have made a deal after all.
We don't know where they've sent Jenkins and Tyler or what they'll be getting in return, but the explanation just given on the the NBA TV trade deadline show is that they're literally waiting in line due to all of the other phone traffic.
The 2013 NBA trade deadline passed at noon PST without any announcement of a Golden State Warriors deal, but Rusty Simmons reports that something minor might still be in the works. For more NBA deadline coverage, check out SB Nation's NBA trade rumors 2013 section.
It's always more fun to dangle trade possibilities than knock them down, but I can only go where my information
takes me: sources say the rumored Eric Gordon-to-the-Warriors' deal will not happen before Thursday's trade deadline. Don't count out the chance that it could be visited (or re-visited) this summer. Why? Will explain shortly.
Looks like I didn't write that many words for nothing. It appears that Bob Myers will hold true to his word about assessing the team as it is now. Unfortunately, it looks like 30 games will be enough. The Warriors have decisions on Carl Landry and Jarrett Jack this offseason but it looks like Klay-for-Gordon will dominate the rumor mill in the summer.
