The Lakers traded Steve Blake on Wednesday to the Golden State Warriors for two young seldom-used guards in Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks. The deal saves the Lakers about $2 million in both salary and luxury taxes.

“I was surprised,” said D’Antoni, who lauded Blake’s toughness. “It was more disappointing that was him. There’s a lot of guys management has to do to retool. You have to do a lot of things. But you hate it for him.”
