Who Wins This Critical Western Conference Trade?


D’Angelo’s Return To Los Angeles

As reports come out about D’Angelo Russell being a negative presence on and off the court, particularly with their newly acquired big man, Rudy Gobert, it was clear that Russel’s time in Minnesota was bound to come to an end.

This along with reports that Timberwolves President Tim Connelly never planned to resign him this offseason, ultimately predicted D’Angelo’s trade from the Timberwolves. He had been playing some of the best basketball of his career, which made it an even better trade for the Timberwolves because his value had never been higher. 

The Lakers needed to change their roster and they did in a major way by getting rid of Russell Westbrook, Juan Toscano-Anderson, Damian Jones, and their first-round pick in 2027 in a series of major trades. They were able to acquire Malik Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt from the Utah Jazz along with D’Angelo Russell from the Timberwolves.

I am a born and raised Minnesota sports fan. My greatest love of sport is for football and my favorite team in that sport is definitely the Minnesota Vikings. Looking forward to writing about them more and giving people insights that they won't get anywhere else.
