This offseason, the Golden State Warriors signed D’Angelo Russell. At the time, the fit was relatively unknown. As the season progressed, the Warriors must have grown a bit uncertain about their superstar addition.
Russell was having a career year, yet the Warriors still weren’t happy with how the team’s future was looking. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have led the backcourt for years, and shaking things up may not be easy for a team with such chemistry.
Before they were even able to see the fit at its height, the Warriors dealt Russell. Joining best friend Karl-Anthony Towns in Minnesota, the Warriors brought back Andrew Wiggins, a top-three protected 2021 first-round pick and a 2021 second-round pick.
