While the NBA Finals is tied at 2 games each, Lee’s games in a Warriors jersey is numbered. According to the USA Today Sports this morning, he was almost traded at the trade deadline.
The team will hope to deal Lee in the summer time, as they look to free up cap space to re-sign Green. The Philadelphia 76ers are reportedly already interested in signing Green.
Green has made less than a million dollars this season. However, he’s looking at a huge pay day in the coming months.
Lee is the only piece of the puzzle that the team would be willing to give up on, especially with his huge contract. He made $15 million this season, and is expected to make $15.4 million next year in the final year of his contract.
Lopez has been rumored to be traded by the Nets for a long time. In fact, his name has been talked about in traded for at least the past two years.
The deal would work under the NBA’s CBA. Plus, it would be a trade of one bad contract for another.
Lee last played in New York during the 2009-10 season.
