Warriors guard Steve Blake is impressed with the team one week after being traded from the Los Angeles Lakers and open to re-signing with Golden State as a free agent after the season. “I can’t lie,” Blake said Friday. “I wonder where I’ll be next year. If I had the opportunity to be here, I would love it. I already knew from the outside that they were a special team. I didn’t realize what a great group of guys it was and how nice it is to play for Coach (Mark) Jackson. Those are all things that I’ll be looking for, for a place I’d like to finish off my career at.” Contra Costa Times

“One of the most important things is winning,” Blake said. “I don’t know if I want to go start on a team that’s going to win 20, 30 games that’s rebuilding. At this point in my career, I don’t think that’s what I’m looking for. If my role is to come off the bench like it is right now and contribute in that way and we’re winning, I’m all for it. That’s all I want to do is win right now, and I think this team has a chance to really do that.” Contra Costa Times

The Lakers received a traded-player exception of $2,789,920 on Wednesday in their trade of Steve Blake to the Golden State Warriors for Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks. A traded-player exception can be used to acquire a player in trade without sending out matching salary. In the case of the Blake exception, the Lakers can deal for a player making up to $2,889,920 (including $100,000 of padding). Los Angeles Times

The exception expires on Feb. 19, 2015, but the team may not have it for long. Should the Lakers drop under the salary cap in July, as expected, they will first need to renounce the exception. Los Angeles Times

"Kobe and I had a great friendship while I was there," Blake said. "He's one of the best teammates I've ever had. I'm definitely going to miss him. I appreciate his support throughout the years. I can't lie, I'm going to miss him." Yahoo! Sports

The Golden State Warriors have acquired veteran point guard Steve Blake from the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for guards Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks, it was announced today. [...] “The acquisition of Steve Blake will provide us with additional veteran depth at point guard as we enter the stretch run of the season,” said Warriors General Manager Bob Myers. “He’s had a productive career and is a player who can both run an offense and has the ability to shoot the basketball.
