D'Angelo Russell has one season remaining on his current contract at $31.4 million and "numerous rival teams expect" the Minnesota Timberwolves to try to trade him this offseason.

Russell was benched for an extended stretch of Minnesota's Game 6 loss. Russell averaged just 12.0 points per game on 33.3 percent shooting in the series.

Russell is known to have a close friendship with Karl-Anthony Towns.

Minnesota traded Andrew Wiggins and the future pick that became Jonathan Kuminga in 2020 in order to acquire Russell.
