D’Angelo Russell Traded to Timberwolves for Andrew Wiggins and Draft Picks

With the NBA trade deadline only hours away, big moves are still being made and the Golden State Warriors just made one for the future. While there have been rumors of D’Angelo Russell only being a trade piece since he arrived, they have moved on from him and traded him to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Andrew Wiggins and draft picks.

The Warriors will be sending Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman, while Golden State gets a 2021 protected first-round pick and a 2022 second-round pick in return.

This deal pairs D-Lo with best friend Karl-Anthony Towns and frees the Wolves from Andrew Wiggins, who has underachieved since he came into the league.

Golden State is now prepared to have a high first round draft pick this year (plus more next year), with a myriad of second round draft picks in the arsenal that they can either keep or flip for another first rounder. With the Splash Brothers returning next season to full strength, the Warriors can load up on young talent to learn from and possibly be set up for years to come.
