Trade Breakdown

MIN: Terry Rozier & Kelly Oubre Jr

CHA: D’Angelo Russell & 2026 2nd


Why Minnesota Does This?

• DLo simply hasn’t playing well for them, so flipping him for a different starting caliber point guard in Terry Rozier & a nice wing in Kelly Oubre Jr.

• Puts them in the best possible position to turn their season around & compete for a potential Top 4 seed in the tough western conference.

Timberwolves Ideal Starting Lineup:

Rozier, Edwards, McDaniels, Towns, & Gobert

Backup Five:

McLaughlin, Nowell, Oubre Jr, Anderson, & Reid

Rest Of Bench:

Rivers, Forbes, Moore, Prince, & Knight


Why Charlotte Does This?

• Land an expiring contract in DLo who in the meantime can either start for them or be dealt for more positive value.

• Gain a future 2nd & begin the tank for generational prospect Victor Wembanyama.

Next Moves To Make

• Sign Isaiah Thomas & Tony Snell

Hornets Ideal Starting Lineup:

Ball, Russell, Hayward, Washington, & Plumlee

Backup Five:

Smith Jr, Bouknight, McDaniels, Jones, & Richards

Rest Of Bench:

Thomas, Snell, Martin, Thor, & Williams
