Russell and Towns Rejoice In The Wake Of The Warriors Wolves Blockbuster | Video

In what was perhaps the most talked about transaction of Thursday’s trade deadline, the Minnesota Timberwolves sent Andrew Wiggins, a top three protected 2021 first round pick (rolls over to 2022 if not used) and a 2021 unprotected second round pick to the Golden State Warriors, in exchange for D’Angelo Russell, Omari Spellman and Jacob Evans.

After what can easily be described as a seven-month full out courtship of Russell, Minnesota finally landed the player they had set their sights on in the hopes of pairing the point guard with his incredibly close friend, Karl-Anthony Towns.

Below is a look at Russell, Spellman and Evans arriving via private jet, at the Signature Flight Support terminal, inside the grounds of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The trio is welcomed by several members of the Wolves organization, including President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas, and of course, the aforementioned Towns.

Shortly after touching down, the three new Wolves headed 11 miles north to the club’s headquarters at Mayo Clinic Square, located in downtown Minneapolis.
