The Minnesota Timberwolves acquired D’Angelo Russell in 2019 with the hope of building a perennial playoff contender around the All-Star guard and Karl-Anthony Towns. Three seasons later, Minnesota is reportedly looking for ways to move on from Russell.

Minnesota’s 26-year-old point guard arrived with plenty of fanfare. He averaged 21.7 points per game in his first 12 starts with the Timberwolves and the team reached the NBA playoffs in 2022.

D’Angelo Russell stats: 17.6 PPG, 6.3 APG, 1.1 SPG, 38.1 3PT%

However, the franchise began losing patience with Russell in November. He was benched by coach Chris Finch multiple times, with his defense and mental mistakes proving costly. With Russell now poised to become one of the top NBA free agents this summer, Minnesota is prepared to move on.
