  • Another blockbuster NBA trade!
  • Rudy Gobert is heading to the Minnesota Timberwolves for a ton of draft picks and 2022 first-rounder Walker Kessler.
  • The NBA world is going crazy after the Utah Jazz continues to sell away.

The NBA free agency period has died down drastically. But, the trade market has ramped up considerably.

Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics landed Malcolm Brogdon in one of the biggest steals in the past few years, and Kevin Huerter went from the Atlanta Hawks to the Sacramento Kings.

Then came the big one. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Rudy Gobert has been traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves. In return, the Utah Jazz are landing a ton of draft picks and Walker Kessler, the Wolves’ 2022 first-round choice.


There are reportedly more pieces to the deal as well, including Patrick Beverley.

The thought of a Karl-AnthonyTowns and Rudy Gobert pairing is an absolute mess down low, and Anthony Edwards and — for the time being — D’Angelo Russell suddenly send the Wolves into a playoff contender in the Western Conference.

It took a hefty price, but the Wolves just got a lot better by adding one of, if not the best, defensive players in the entire NBA.

Of course, let’s not forget about Brian Windhorst questioning the Jazz earlier that very same day. Well, he knew something was up.

The NBA never sleeps.
