D’Angelo Russell could be on the move this coming offseason after three years with the Timberwolves. The 26-year-old point guard, who arrived to Minnesota from Golden State for Andrew Wiggins, had a disappointing playoff series against the Grizzlies.

He averaged 12 points (32.7% field goals), 2.5 rebounds and 6.7 assists in 32.8 minutes per game over the six first round games. Russell’s regular season averages were 18.1 points (42% field goals), 3.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists in 32 minutes per game.

Via Marc Stein:

“Numerous rival teams expect the Wolves to try to trade Russell this offseason irrespective of Russell’s close relationship with Minnesota star Karl-Anthony Towns. Russell, 26, has one season left on his contract at $31.4 million.”
