Steve Blake was one of the most liked players on the team and was sent packing to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday in exchange for MarShon Brooks and Kent Bazemore. Even though the Lakers brought in some talented young players and saved money in the process, Kobe wasn’t happy about the move and vented on Twitter:

Outside of the Indiana Pacers bringing in Evan Turner for Danny Granger, the Warriors may have made one of the best trades before the deadline. Although Blake isn’t getting any younger, the veteran point guard will be a perfect addition to the Warriors’ bench as the team looks toward the playoffs.

As for the Lakers, there’s no telling how things will pan out with Brooks and Bazemore. Both players are on expiring deals and may simply be half-season rentals.

Fortunately, Blake didn’t rule out returning to the Lakers in free agency. Although the team’s plan remains a mystery in terms of what they intend to do this summer, Blake returning might be a move the Lakers would consider.
