With a record of 9-33 in the West, it’s fair to say that the Golden State Warriors haven’t much to play for this season. But it doesn’t mean they have to be silent this trade deadline.
In fact, the Warriors have been among the most active teams so far, with reports indicating they might be willing to part with their All-Star guard, D’Angelo Russell.
On the other side, the Timberwolves are pushing hard for a postseason berth and need an additional piece to get them there. Russell is someone who fills their need, and you can expect the two sides to be active in talks leading up to the deadline. According to Shams Charania, the Wolves have actually increased their pursuit of the Golden State All-Star.

Rumors of a reunion between KAT and Russ have been floating since the young guard first arrived in San Fransisco. Of course, we know the ties both stars have with each other and they seem like a personal fit on the court.
As multi-faceted offensive talents, they will complement each other’s game well, and his arrival would likely spark a revival for the struggling franchise.
Expect both sides to be active ahead of the deadline.
