Vaughan's Andrew Wiggins on move to Golden State Warriors

In five-plus seasons in Minnesota, Wiggins was a major disappointment. In the long run, what the franchise did is flawless for its long-term plans.

Interestingly, the Knicks have also shown a significant amount of interest in D'Angelo Russell and discussed the potential packages. Minnesota general manager Gersson Rosas pursued him in free agency before he agreed to join the Warriors in a sign-and-trade deal that sent Kevin Durant to the Brooklyn Nets in July.

It was reported that the Warriors and Timberwolves will continue to be engaged in trade conversations which revolve around D'Angelo Russell, according to league sources. In that draft, Towns was taken first overall, while Russell was selected second. After the Wolves lost to Atlanta on Wednesday, Towns was as sullen as ever.

So will it work this time? It now sits at 12-40, in one of the most drastic turnarounds we've ever seen in the National Basketball Association. Absolutely. But to get excited about it, well, that would be a mistake.

With Draymond Green operating as a versatile defender and point forward, all Wiggins has to focus on is scoring (although the team will expect better decision-making, a constant willingness to pass and to defend).

Steve Kerr said the exchange for Andrew Wiggins was good.

With both Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry expected to continue their roles with this team for years to come, it simply didn't make sense to keep Russell and his large price tag around. "That was one of those reasons the trade rumours started before the season even began and I think D'Angelo understood that before he signed the contract". Towns and guard Josh Okogie are the only players still on the roster from when Rosas was hired last May. There's some guys who are going to fit no matter what. We were very aggressive at the trade deadline and things lined up for us.

These two teams met on February 1 in LA, with the Clippers winning by 12. The addition of Russell will create an immediate buzz about the latest changes at Target Center but how long will that last?
