The Warriors picked Poole in the 2019 NBA Draft in the first round as the 28th overall pick. Over his tenure at the Warriors, he improved massively and developed into a complete player. A prolific and dynamic shooter with good passing skills, he became a fan favorite and was often dubbed as the third Splash brother, owing to the similar style of play as Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

 Why was Jordan Poole traded?

The Warriors traded Poole to the Wizards along with a few others for legendary point guard Chris Paul. The Warriors fans have not appreciated the move, but it’s not because of Chris Paul, but because of Draymond Green. Fans are pretty upset over the fact that the Warriors traded Jordan Poole instead of Draymond Green, especially because of his conduct problems. Poole ultimately left after Green punched him and ever since the incident, things haven’t looked great for the Warriors.

In an interview with The Athletic’s Anthony Slater, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr stated: “I just hate the way it ended for Jordan here, because he is a huge success story.” He expressed his regret over not being handle the situation after the incident of Green and Poole occured, stating: “I know that in my heart, that when [the Draymond Green punch] happened, we handled it the best way we thought we could handle it. But in hindsight — and hindsight is always 20/20 — we could have done better for sure.”
