D’Angelo Russell has been performing his career-best in the Golden State Warriors since the last few games but the team is still losing games left and right. The Warriors are at their worst state after losing the NBA 2019 finals, losing their main players and half of their current roster including Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson getting injured.
D'Angelo Russell's last four games:
-30 points, 8 assists
-52 points, 5 assists
-30 points, 7 assists
-33 points, 8 assists
(49% shooting overall, 42% on 3s)

D’Angelo Russell (30 points) has scored 30+ in three-straight games for the first time in his career (24th career 30-point game).

It is time for D’Angelo Russell to change teams and the Dubs side should make a trade deal soon as their original intention was always to use him as an asset. The Minnesota Timberwolves could send out a package of Jeff Teague, Robert Covington, and two future first-round picks to the Warriors for getting Russell.
Teague, Covington and 1st-Rounders to the Warriors
The Golden State Warriors could get Robert Convington and Jeff Teague from the Timberwolves and use them as the replacement for their injured players. The duo of Covington and Teague could be playing in the attacking and defending positions for Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson respectively.
It would be a much smart move considering the timeline and the Warriors could trade the new imports from T-Wolves in the February trade deadline when Curry and Thompson make a comeback. D’Angelo Russell is only scoring top points in the game as the main star Curry is injured and once he’s back there will no space for him and both the teams involved in the trade deal knows the information.
Will Warriors trade out D’Angelo Russell?
Minnesota Timberwolves could become an instant contender after pairing up D’Angelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns for the NBA 2019-20 season. The deal would be perfect for both the Warriors and Timberwolves but the only problem is will the Dubs side let their star guard go away in such tensed situations! NBA February trade deadline is getting closer and we could soon hear about some big names exchanging teams.
