Well to start the T-wolves could have kept Lauri Marrkanen who I am a big fan of. I am not much a fan of Gorgui Dieng just for no apparent reason really. The T-wolves no longer really have that young core that I so much loved. And they have been rumored to still be shopping Ricky Rubio so why trade Kris Dunn?
The Bulls end up with some great guard talent. They can trade or buyout Wade and Rondo even though those dollar signs on their contracts are pretty large. Or they could keep them to try to make another run, but they don’t really have enough to compete with the Cavs so they might as well just let the young guys develop. With Markkanen the Bulls have another big who can spread the floor, which is undeniably where the game is heading. Denzel Valentine can slide in to Jimmy Butler's spot and there you go, a very formidable team.
Minnesota just isn’t as exciting as they used to be without Zach LaVine and Dunn has much more potential than Rubio. Yeah Butler is reunited with Thibs but that’s not that big of a deal is it really? I guess it could make Butler actually happy to be somewhere.
I’m jumping off the Timberwolves bang wagon with this move.
Not quite jumping on the Bulls bandwagon though, I still think they are a couple moves away. I wouldn’t mind them keeping Rondo and Wade but I’m all for the young guys.
Saying the Bulls will finish with a better record isn’t quite a fair assessment of this trade because the Timberwolves play in a much tougher conference but I’m still going to say it.
Minnesota gives away three first round picks and you’re saying they won the trade?
What’s wrong with you.
I’m going to agree with Danny Ainge on this one, Minnesota over paid and got worse.
If Jimmy Butler’s voicemail box wasn’t full I would tell him he should’ve wanted to go to a more star studded team.
Minnesota lost a lot of depth in this trade and didn’t get a big enough superstar to call them selves a contenting team. Chicago is now set up with great depth with great young players who can grow together.
The Timberwolves still don’t have that go to scorer as I am not convinced Jimmy Butler is that guy.
Maybe Minnesota has more faith in Tyus Jones than we thought.
