Eric Paschall’s parting message to Warriors after trade to Jazz

Eric Paschall, Warriors, Jazz

Eric Paschall’s time with the Golden State Warriors may have lasted for only two years, but there’s no doubt he enjoyed his time with the team.

After he was traded to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday in exchange for a second round pick, Paschall took to Twitter to thank the Warriors and the fan base. He also expressed his excitement to join the Salt Lake City franchise, where he’ll be reuniting with his good friend Donovan Mitchell.

Moreover, Eric Paschall made sure to respond to Donovan Mitchell, who was really hyped to see his childhood friend and teammate join him in Utah.

Paschall was one of the bright young talents of the Warriors, putting up 12.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in the 100 games he played in his first two seasons in Golden State. In his rookie season when he averaged 14.0 points a night, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. Unfortunately, the Dubs needed to clear a roster spot as they try to tweak the team in a bid to contend for the title.

According to Anthony Slater of The Athletic, though, Paschall wanted to reunite with Mitchell and so he was sent to the Jazz in the deal that works for both teams.

It remains to be seen what role Paschall will play with the Jazz, who also added Rudy Gay and Hassan Whiteside in free agency. However, his acquisition certainly added depth to a roster that seems ready to fight for the NBA title.
