The Warriors, led by Ky Bowman at point guard, ran the same offensive system Saturday the dynastic Golden State squads popularized. Russell has been on Minnesota's radar for months, a dynamic point guard in his fifth National Basketball Association season.

Per the report, the Warriors will also receive a 2021 protected first-round draft pick and a 2022 second-round selection. However, it's fair to say that both teams accomplished a critical goal.

This news was dealt out by Adrian Wojnarowski himself on Thursday afternoon. Towns headlined the club's contingent at the airport the night before, when Russell and Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman, the other players acquired from Golden State, arrived on a chartered plane. The All-Star will now team up with pal Karl-Anthony Towns in Minnesota. LA is just 14-10 on the road, but the Timberwolves are an atrocious 6-19 on home court. Last night, they pulled off a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers. The deal continues to evolve, according to the report, and could include more players and/or draft picks. Like early-career Iguodala, Wiggins may have been asked to do too much at his pre-Warriors stop. This might be the ideal situation for him, as well.

Price, slowed by injuries numerous times in his career, went 7-5 with a 4.28 ERA in 22 starts previous year . Step aside 2012, we have a new Trade of the Century involving the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers .

Golden State has been decimated by injuries to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. The Warriors surely still envision themselves as contenders in the 2020-21 season.

In the final hours before the NBA's annual trade deadline, the Golden State Warriors agreed to trade point guard D'Angelo Russell to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for forward Andrew Wiggins and the Wolves 2021 first-round pick and 2021 second-round pick.

As is always the case when it comes to a trade in professional sports, we'll have to wait and see how these players perform before deciding who wins in regards to this deal. Let's take a look at four obvious reasons. One of the key components was double-double machine Clint Capela going from the Rockets to the Hawks.

Sharing the floor with two all-time great shooters will allow Wiggins to focus on making the simple play: Spotting-up for 3-pointers, attacking loose closeouts, getting out in transition, making the simple pass and playing hard on defense.
