The Warriors have officially added Kelly Oubre Jr,. orchestrating a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN was first to break the news that the Warriors were on the verge of making a move in the wake of Klay Thompson's Achilles tear, an injury expected to sideline the Spalsh Brother for all of the season to come.

Woj had originally scooped the trade earlier in the afternoon on Thursday.

As part of the swap with Oklahoma City, the Warriors will "absorb" Oubre's $14.4 million salary into the club's $17.2 million trade exception, as Woj details.

The trade will balloon the Warriors' luxury bill.
