Timberwolves send Johnson to Thunder as part of Rubio trade”

"He will be a solid addition to our core in All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns, All-Star guard D'Angelo Russell and first overall pick Anthony Edwards". "It made me just want to work even harder, just to know that I have this enormous amount of potential in their books". Minnesota acquired Russell from the Golden State Warriors at the 2020 trade deadline and drafted Edwards with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 draft.

The Timberwolves officially announced the trade Friday.

Minnesota then reportedly sent the rights to Quickley and the No. 33 pick, forward Daniel Oturu, to the New York Knicks in exchange for the rights to the No. 23 pick, Argentinian shooting guard Leandro Bolmaro. He played for the Utah Jazz for two years before landing in Phoenix, where he signed a three-year, $51 million deal before last season started. He spent last season with the Phoenix Suns and was involved in the Chris Paul trade earlier this week. There's plenty of room to grow after a 19-45 finish that had them left out of the NBA's post-season bubble.
