D'Angelo Russell is heading from Brooklyn to San Francisco.
The Brooklyn Nets will send the former Ohio State guard to the Golden State Warriors as part of a sign-and-trade, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Sunday night. Russell will sign a maximum four-year, $117 million contract, per Wojnarowski.

The shocking move will pair Russell with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green as the Warriors attempt to continue to dominate the Western Conference without Kevin Durant, who announced Sunday that he will sign with the Nets.
Russell averaged 21.1 points, seven assists and 3.9 rebounds in 30.2 minutes per game last season with the Nets.
