The following day, the DulUTH trade deadline came and went without a deal.
This was disappointing news for the Minnesota Wild, but the trade deadline in general is a good time to see what trades might have been made.
The Wild got a lot of value out of a number of players on the trade market, including some solid draft picks.
This trade deadline is a great time to start looking at trades.
A trade is when a team makes a trade for a player, usually a player with some sort of future, but does not receive a future return.
There are several trade deadline deals that the Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Wild made on February 24.
First up is a two-for-one trade that sent a second round pick to the San Antonio Spurs.
On January 20, Minnesota sent Kevin Martin to the Spurs in exchange for two first round picks, which the Spurs would use on Sam Dekker.
On January 27, Minnesota shipped Joel Embiid to the Houston Rockets in exchange to acquire the 22nd pick in the 2017 NBA draft.
The Timberwolves also sent Marcus Smart and Tyler Johnson to the Rockets in a trade on January 29.
The Timberwolves have traded Sam Deker and Tyler Smith in two trades.
The two players signed deals with the Spurs.
On February 4, Minnesota received the first round pick they received in the deal.
The team also received a second-round pick, which it used to draft Sam Dekers future No. 2 pick, Malik Beasley.
The deal is worth $7.5 million.
Minnesota traded the 22st pick in this year’s draft to the Brooklyn Nets for the 22-year-old center.
The Timberwolves traded forward Ryan Gomes to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange.
The move will bring Minnesota one more player, and it will cost the Hawks another pick.
Gomes played in only 26 games for the Timberwolves last season, and only played in the NBA Finals.
In addition to the Timberwolves acquiring two picks, they also received two second round picks.
Travis Wear was sent to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for Zach Collins and a 2018 second round draft pick.
Collins, the second pick in 2017, has been a bit of a surprise.
He has struggled offensively in his first year of pro ball, but his shooting percentage has improved.
While the Timberwolves have lost a lot this year, they have been one of the most improved teams in the league.
This deal should give Minnesota more stability in the frontcourt.
A few of the players traded to the Wolves this season are projected to be key contributors to the next Timberwolves roster.
One of them is point guard Jonas Jerebko.
Jerebkos athleticism and size is something that can be used in the triangle offense and it is going to be interesting to see how the Wolves use him.
Another player who is very talented is guard T.J. McConnell.
The Wolves are going to need a point guard this season because of injuries and the lack of talent on the roster.
This is a position that McConnell can be a big help in, as the Wolves have two players who are capable of scoring at a high level.
Lastly, we have Minnesota’s top draft pick, Jamal Murray.
Murray, a 6’10”, 260-pound shooting guard, is a big reason the Wolves are in the playoff hunt.
He was the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s NBA draft and the No
