Wolves about to trade D’Angelo Russell?

Dane Moore: I’ve been saying for the past month that I’ve heard it is over a 50% chance that D’Angelo Russell is traded this offseason. Conversations with a few non-Timberwolves sources today suggest a Russell trade is now even more likely — either tonight or the first week of July.

KAT shared the floor with Dieng for 2161 minutes in 16-17 and he shared the floor with Gibson for 2179 the next year. 2000 minutes is a lot — about what he + DLo have shared the floor for since the trade.
The idea that playing KAT next to a 5 would be completely new is odd to me – 12:30 AM

More on this storyline

Other teams currently known to be aggressively searching for point guards are the New York Knicks and Washington Wizards, while the Minnesota Timberwolves have actively explored the market for D’Angelo Russell trade scenarios, sources told B/R. -via Bleacher Report / June 23, 2022

The draft is one day away, but to this point, the Timberwolves have not come close on any trades involving D’Angelo Russell or any other player, sources told The Athletic. The discussions are expected to evolve from theoretical to practical the closer it gets to the draft. -via The Athletic / June 22, 2022

D’Angelo Russell is being shopped around, so it makes sense for the Timberwolves to target a shot-creator with this selection. TyTy and Karl-Anthony Towns could make for a lethal pick-and-roll pairing, and with Anthony Edwards resembling a superstar in the playoffs (and in Hustle) Minnesota would be equipped with a dynamic offense. Whatever Russell would return in a trade could only bolster their roster even more. -via nbadraft.theringer.com / June 13, 2022
