Minnesota Timberwolves make multi-player swap with Golden State

UNDATED (AP) – The Minnesota Timberwolves have little hope of making the NBA playoffs this spring. That didn’t stop them from landing a major talent before Thursday’s trade deadline.

The Timberwolves have acquired D’Angelo Russell in a deal that sends Andrew Wiggins to the Warriors. The Wolves also received guard Jacob Evans and forward Omari Spellman for a pair of draft picks, including a first-rounder either in 2021 or 2022.

Russell was averaging a career-high 23.6 points for the injury-wrecked Warriors, while Wiggins was scoring 22.4 points a game.
