The Golden State Warriors are reportedly shipping D’Angelo Russell to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

According to ESPN, Russell is being traded away after less than a year with the team in return for Andrew Wiggins and draft picks. Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman are also headed to Minnesota. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Talk about a trade to shake the NBA to the core of the league! D’Angelo Russell going to the Warriors never made a ton of sense with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson already there.

It didn’t take long at all for the Warriors to decide Russell wasn’t a fit, and now they’re getting one of the best forwards in the NBA on their team.

Wiggins joining the Warriors makes a hell of a lot more sense than another guard on a team already stacked with them.

Plus, Curry and Thompson will eventually return healthy to the backcourt for Golden State, and then there’s no room for Russell anyways.

All the way around, seems like a god decision for everybody involved.
