Brooklyn Nets’ D’Angelo Russell Calls Trade ‘Business’

Published

on

The Brooklyn Nets are building their team around a youth movement and part of that movement includes guard D’Angel Russell.

Russell, along with Timofey Mozgov, was acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Brook Lopez and the No. 27 overall pick (Kyle Kuzma) in the NBA Draft.

The trade shocked a lot of people who were surprised to see the Lakers move on so fast from Russell.

During an appearance on WFAN with Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts, Russell discussed the trade.

“It’s business, man” Russell said (h/t Anthony Puccio of Nets Daily).

“That’s how I got to look at it. A lot of things happen in this league and you don’t agree with it or however you may feel about it and at the end of the day realize it’s business.”

Russell is no stranger to being a part of a rebuild, which the Lakers have been, and he sees his opportunity with the Nets as exciting.

“I was excited” Russell admitted.

“I was excited to get a new opportunity to start over, but it definitely caught me off guard. You see guys get traded you never think it would have to be you until it does. New step for me.”

The Nets are hoping that Russell can blossom into a floor general and a franchise cornerstone for years to come.
