The Warriors have traded Forward Corey Maggette to the Milwaukee Bucks.  Maggette gave the Warriors a spark off the bench in the 2009-10 season.  He was one of the best 6th men in the NBA as he averaged 19 points.  Here are some of the good and bad sides of the trade.

Quantity Over Quality:   This trade brought in 2 new players to the Warriors.  The Warriors acquired veterans Charlie Bell and Dan Gadzuric.  Neither of these players will provide much help, looking at their stats neither of them are impressive.  But for a team with the injury concerns of the Warriors, it helps to get a 2-for-1 trade.

Money Better Spent:   The Warriors are saving about $15 million with this trade.  Corey Maggette signed a lucrative 5 year, $50 million contract when he signed with the Warriors after helping the Clippers reach the playoffs.   That's right!  The Clippers in the playoffs!  Corey never played up to his contract.  He was given this contract simply so the Warriors could get revenge on the Clippers for signing away Baron Davis,  no offense intended towards Maggette.
