10:37pm: The Warriors tweet that they have officially dealt Wanamaker to the Hornets. The terms of the deal are as follows:
- Hornets acquire Wanamaker, the Raptors’ 2022 second-round pick (top-54 protected), and cash.
- Warriors acquire the Hornets’ 2025 second-round pick (top-55 protected).
2:19pm: The Hornets have agreed to acquire veteran guard Brad Wanamaker in a trade with the Warriors, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).
Golden State won’t receive any players or picks in return, tweets Anthony Slater of The Athletic. Charlotte has the room to absorb Wanamaker’s $2.25MM cap charge, so no salary-matching was necessary.
Cash will be involved in the deal, per Slater, though it’s unclear which team is receiving it. Given Wanamaker’s middling production and the Warriors’ sizeable tax bill, I’d expect Golden State to be the team sending out cash, but Wes Goldberg of The San Jose Mercury-News says it’ll be Charlotte doing so. We’ll have to wait for more details.
Wanamaker was expendable because Golden State views rookie Nico Mannion as its backup point guard moving forward, according to Monte Poole of NBC Sports (Twitter link). The Warriors were able to open two roster spots today ahead of the buyout season.
After signing with the Warriors as a free agent in November, Wanamaker appeared in 39 games, all as a reserve, and averaged 4.7 points and 2.5 assists per night.

Hahahahahahahahahahaha WE DID IT!!!
Hornets need the guard help with Ball out for a while
Wanamaker is negative help.
Now post Chriss to Spurs – its buyout season and GSW has 2 open spots now!!!
Whey to go out and get that rebounder and rim protector Kupchak!
Oops – Way
Warriors probably threw something in. They wanted to free up a roster spot for buyouts
No currently rostered players are coming back to the Warriors in the Wanamaker to Charlotte or Chriss to San Antonio deals, I’m told. No picks being exchanged either. Just cash, clearing two roster spots for the Warriors as buyout season approaches.
Nice! Now let’s get something out of these buyouts!!
Drummond makes them better, anyone taking Wanaturnover’s minutes makes them better. Just have to cut Bazemore’s minutes and all the dumb players will be on the bench where they belong.
Mulder should be played more TBH, especially over Bazemore.
Seriously Bazemore has been a big disappointment this year. Warriors were so happy to get him at the discounted Veteran’s minimum rate after playing in Portland and Atlanta and wherever else for big bucks. Now we can see why he was passed up LOL.
Wiseman is going to start the rest of the season. I doubt Drummond wants to come off the bench.
Jabari Parker is going to sign with the Warriors.
Good question. Ask the Spurs who literally just traded for Chriss.
Hopefully LaMarcus Aldridge is coming to the Hornets too, following his buyout.
How many ex celtics are they doing accumulate
Nico Mannion backup PG really? Thats a lot of confidence in someone b.c they can keep up on defense.
What about Jordan Poole, Monte Poole of NBC Sports.
Probably old news to GSW fans: They went out on a limb drafting father Pace Mannion of Utah years ago. They hope this time it turns out better.
