What Does This Mean For The Wolves?
This trade was not a flashy one for the Timberwolves but it could be the move that brings them closer as a team. It was important to get rid of the negativity that D’Angelo Russell was becoming and the Wolves traded for a proven veteran to take his place at least for the rest of this season.
It will be exciting to see how the team performs without Russell as well as when Karl-Anthony Towns can return from his Grade Three Calf Strain. It sounds like he should be back for the last 10-15 games of the regular season.
If this team is going to make the playoffs, it is going to be squarely on Anthony Edwards’ shoulders to lead the way. They have an intriguing combination of younger players along with seasoned veterans.
Jaden McDaniels has taken his defense to higher heights than previously thought possible and Rudy Gobert has been finding his rhythm on the offensive side of things as well.
As long as Karl Anthony Towns can come back this season and the rest of the team stays healthy for the most part, this team will be one to reckon with in the Western Conference of the NBA.
