D’Angelo Russell is one of the players on the Minnesota Timberwolves roster who is frequently mentioned in various NBA rumors. The Timberwolves may not be looking for a way out of Russell right now, but unlike Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards, he is not considered untouchable in the franchise and the New Orleans Pelicans they want to take advantage.
Greg Patuto of NBA Analysis Network reported a possible trade that would allow the Pelicans to acquire Russell from the Timberwolves before the trade deadline. In this potential deal, the Pelicans would send a package that includes Devonte ‘Graham, Josh Hart, Tomas Satoransky and a 2022 second-round pick to the Timberwolves in exchange for Russell and Jaylen Nowell.
The Karl-Anthony Towns + D’Angelo Russell inverted pick-and-roll is a fascinating wrinkle.

The lace in the Pelicans
D’Lo would be an amazing addition to the Pelicans. Compared to Graham and Satoransky, he is better able to take on the role of starting point guard for the Pelicans for the upcoming season. His possible arrival in New Orleans would give them a significant improvement in the outside game and improve their performance on the offensive side of the court. When surrounded by the right pieces, the trio of Russell, Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson could give the Pelicans a realistic shot at being able to compete in the tough Western Conference and as the years go by perhaps winning their first NFL championship title.
