Jazz traded Rudy Gobert to the Wolves
All-NBA center Rudy Gobert is on the move after being traded by the Utah Jazz to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Minnesota is receiving one of the best defenders in the NBA.
Gobert is a three-time Kia Defensive Player of the Year and has been a First Team All-Defensive selection for six straight seasons.
He’s made the All-Star Game in three consecutive seasons with averages of 15 points and 13.9 rebounds.
He leaves a Jazz team that has loaded up on a slew of future assets since the start of free agency.
Utah acquired a 2023 first-round pick from the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday in exchange for Royce O’Neale.
Gobert is entering the second season of a five-year, $205 million contract.
Towns agreed to a four-year, $224 million supermax extension at midnight Friday, the first moment he was eligible, with a total commitment of $295 million over six years.
