D’Angelo Russell was the consolation prize for the Warriors in the sign and trade with the Nets. It allowed the Nets to free up necessary cap space and also gave the Warriors something in return for KD instead of getting nothing. He’s only 23 so he’s far from his prime, he was just an All-Star last year, and as a 6’ 5” guard, there was a lot of potential of Russell learning from Curry and Klay. But there was always the question of fit alongside Curry and Klay. The main caveat with this was the the Warriors got a young player with potential in a situation where they were about to get nothing. So now they got Andrew Wiggins who is a polarizing player, a guy who’s in this gray zone where he’s not bad, he’s not great, he’s just good with so much more promise on a really expensive contract, maybe the worst in the league.
So the main focus for the Warriors is to build a team for next season while managing to stockpile assets for the future. Curry is almost 32 years old, Klay is turning 30 tomorrow, and Draymond Green is turning 30 in less than a month. And so the window for these players is definitely dwindling. At the same time, these three still have peak years left.
So now they get Andrew Wiggins out of a situation where they were going to lose KD for nothing and perhaps more importantly, the Timberwolves 1st round pick in 2021 that’s only top 3 protected. Remember the Timberwolves are only 3 games ahead of the Warriors with the 4th worst record. So the Warriors could end up with the number 1 pick with their own pick and a top 5 pick with the Timberwolves in the future, all which become either young talent for the future or tradable assets.
Andrew Wiggins is about to turn 25 years old, and has multiple seasons of averaging 20+ points, but we all know that he’s still not fulfilling his potential. The Timberwolves is a franchise that has not been the best environment. The Warriors have been a great organization that for the past 7-8 years really has been getting the most out of their players.
So now onto the basketball side of things where people think Wiggins is basically a Harrison Barnes in the Warriors system, especially since Wiggins is not a knockdown shooter, but that’s just wrong. Did the Warriors not just have Durant on their roster? Curry, Klay, and Green all gave up touches and usage so that Durant would be able to operate in the offense. Durant just averaged 28.2% usage rate in his 3 years on the Warriors while Harrison Barnes was fulfilling a role and getting a usage rate around 16%. Now do I think Andrew Wiggins will have the same usage as Kevin Durant? Heck no, but the offense has room to give Wiggins his touches, especially with Andre Iguodala gone. The Warriors need more ball handlers, besides Curry and Green, it’s what allows the Warriors to run a lot of these off-ball actions with Curry and Klay and Wiggins can actually do that.
Wiggins has emerged as a primary ball handler this season, at times, running point guard for the Timberwolves with some success which is more than what Harrison Barnes could do for the Warriors. Wiggins focused on ball handling this off-season and saw film on James Harden on how Harden could break down a defense with his handling. IOn top of that, he can be that guy that can run heavy with the second unit and stagger Curry and Wiggins minutes, but at the same time still play them together in important stretches.
Can we talk about how Wiggins benefits from being surrounded by Curry and Klay? As a slasher, he will have all the space in the world to operate. If defenses decide to bring help defense, Wiggins has already shown that he can make open passes, but most likely defenses won’t help off which means Wiggins is going to have one on one coverage and probably not against the primary perimeter defender of the team. And with no one really at Wiggins position on the Warriors, he’s their main small forward which allows Klay to play more of his natural position at the 2. Everyone on the Warriors can really play their natural positions.
The big risk in this trade comes with Wiggins’s contract. His contract still has 3 seasons left after this year averaging more than 30 million dollars a season. That’s a huge contract to someone who’s not proven that he’s a star. The one plus that minimizes a worst case scenario with Wiggins not being a star is that the Warriors will still have the draft pick. This trade is really one of the riskiest trades for the Warriors.

    • Mr Fool He did it 1 game, they’ve played each other 11 times and Bron won 10/11 and bested him in every star relax😂 Thabo Sefolosha locked up LeBron too, you think he’s losing sleep over it? I’d be great for the Warriors if this was consistent play but that’s not realistic.

    • You can't play good defense when KAT is just a 7' pylon. Whoever says warriors won this trade is delusional. Now you have two stars on the Wolves who are not commited to defense and that is about as good as getting the 8th seed every year to go with a first round exit in the west. Barnes 2.0 is a stretch because Barnes does not have Wiggins' length or his athleticism. From what I have seen so far after the trade, Wiggins will be fine. He sized up Lebron on defense and guarded David in the post. With Wiggins' length they can also go back to the small ball line ups that were very successful.

  • As a Timberwolves fan wiggins is a bust even in the right system hes not an all star. The move interesting move is the best 3 point shooting center (KAT) getting paired up with a deep ball threat playmaker (Dlo) in a move that impresses and interests devin booker. Regardless Dlo is home and If booker comes too the worst team in the league is a title contender

  • Wiggins seems like he always does the bare minimum in any role he is given so he shrinks as his role shrinks. As a rising star he didn’t rise too high As a 3rd option for KAT and butler he stunk barely averaging over 15 on horrible shooting and no defense Loses a bunch of games and has 3 weeks of elite play followed by horrible regression Gets to the warriors and shows no signs of imposing himself, pretty much just floating out there He’s just coasting it’s woefully apparent he’s just doing what he needs to keep himself in the league and those checks coming but has no interest in taking it seriously

  • short term wolves won, but they gave up those draft picks for essential 2 players this year that had identical stats and contracts. So long term warriors will win the deal, because like most MN sports, wiggins will probably thrive outside of MN, and unless the wolves can learn to play d-fense and or pick up booker, the big 3 want to play together, if they can all agree on contracts that let them play together, but if they can't then don't be mad when you can only afford 3 players on your 15 player team. But unless this new MN general manager is any good and knows what the fuck he's doing (which no MN exec has yet) Mn always get's screwed in the long run just to keep fans interested vs. big market teams. And MN is too fucking honest to tank a season to get a number 1 pick. If MN was smart they tank every god damn game this year and get that number 1 pick, that might make it all worth it, and that's assuming MN actually hires some scouts that know what they're doing, let's face it MN's draft selections haven't been very good, KG and KaT out of 25+ years and hundreds of draft picks, is not a good track record.

    • @Macabree no one else in the league would have given that much for russel, sure he was going to get traded at some point, but a number 1 draft pick as well, no f'ing way, MN only makes that deal that's why they did it. Warriors are an actually smart organization, now they'll tank the rest of this year, grab yet another 1 pick on top of wiggs if they keep him and then still have 3 all-stars. I mean this trade was no Herschel walker trade, but still, I mean MN did get some good utility pieces as well, but they also gave up their only 2 way guy as well, and MN is still hurting from the butler fiasco, plus they already blew it with lavine, I mean this team if they would have waited another 2 years would have made something out of lavine, wiggs, and kat, but man, I'm to the point that they should just close the franchise down to be honest, pretty sure they've been on the chopping block for a while now.

  • GS drafting James Wiseman and having the Wolves first round pick which most likely will be a top 5 lottery pick sets them up for continued success. Wiseman, Steph, Klay, Wiggins will open the floor up more having a center of Wisemans level and Wiggins finally being able to just play and be a number 3/4 player instead of an expected 1/2 like in MINN will make this trade a home run for GS.
