Timberwolves in talks on multiteam deal to land D'Angelo Russell

Timberwolves in talks on multiteam deal to land D'Angelo Russell”

Golden State Warriors star point guard D'Angelo Russell could get traded in the summer and not in the trade deadline, per an National Basketball Association executive.

The rest of the deal could happen without the Warriors' involvement, which would be Robert Covington to the Houston Rockets, Clint Capela to the Hawks and draft assets from Atlanta to Minnesota.

Minnesota does not want to part with a high draft pick as they continue to rebuild, but that is what the Warriors are seeking in any potential deal for Russell.

The Timberwolves have reportedly explored trading one of their top players for Russell, but it does not sound like Golden State is interested.

Woj is quick to note in his report that "a gulf has remained between the Warriors and Timberwolves on a possible agreement".

One of the biggest names being floated around as we near the National Basketball Association trade deadline is D'Angelo Russell - and there's one team in particular that seems hell bent on acquiring the 23-year old point guard.

Golden State has an interest in shedding salary in a potential Russell trade, and Minnesota could need to give the Warriors flexibility on which year or years they'd prefer draft picks, league sources said.

There's a deal to be made for Russell if the Wolves can come up with enough assets and don't protect their own first-round pick. Minnesota's Andrew Wiggins would have to be included in nearly any Russell trade package.

Russell is averaging just under 24 points and 6.3 assists per game this season for the Warriors.
