Warriors trade D-Lo to Wolves for Wiggins
Golden State has agreed to trade D'Angelo Russell to Minnesota for a deal that includes Andrew Wiggins, a 2021 protected first-round pick and a 2022 second-round pick, league sources tell ESPN. Warriors will send Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman to Timberwolves too.Interesting trade. What do you think?
Warriors have now traded their top scorer for the season and the three guys who've played most games. Though obviously this is a special season for Golden State. Wiggins is thought to have one of the worst contracts in the league and not be the winning sort, but we haven't seen him with a winning team. If he has two of the supreme scorers with him, what opportunities would it create?
Some have viewed it as "trading Durant for Wiggins" though that's clearly oversimplifying things. I saw someone describe this as like getting a new, more expensive Harrison Barnes.
