In a swap of high scorers consummated just a few hours before the National Basketball Association deadline on Thursday, the Timberwolvesacquired the dynamic point guard they'd been seeking for awhile in Russell and pulled the plug on their development of Wiggins, the mercurial first overall pick of the 2014 draft. Rosas said Friday he knew this type overhaul would be necessary from the day he took the job, especially since the Wolves' style of play (taking as many three-pointers as possible) didn't match their personnel (guys who couldn't shoot the three). They both came in with lots of pedigree and hype, and have yet to prove themselves as anything more than volume scorers are decent-to-bad teams.
In Minnesota, the Wolves were eager to pair a solid point guard with Towns. He has 5.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists. In fact, as Thompson describes, Russell didn't fit in with the team and executives around the club were trying to get rid of him sooner than later.
It is worth noting that when the Warriors had agreed upon a sign-and-trade for D'Angelo Russell during last summer, they had hard-capped Golden State for the entire season. "When you already have Steph (Curry) and Klay (Thompson) and you add a ball-dominant guard, you can rightfully question the fit". He averaged 23.6 points per game for the injury-wrecked Warriors, a career high after coming in an offseason trade with Brooklyn.
If at the very least Wiggins can serve as a Harrison Barnes-Esque/quality third-option to a healthy Klay and Steph, then the Warriors have struck gold. Golden State would only be considering a deal which offers a significant draft pick compensation as part of any Minnesota package.
