New Details Emerge From Wild Rudy Gobert Trade

After leading the Utah Jazz to six straight playoff appearances,

Rudy Gobert has been traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

But the Jazz didn't exactly get Peanuts for All-Star Center.

Early reporting on the trade indicated that the Timberwolves were leaving Malik Beasley,

Five first-round selections for Patrick Beverly, Walker Kessler, Jared Vanderbilt and the current NBA rebound champion.

Not long ago, ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski got an update on compensation.

Woj reported some time ago that the Timberwolves were sending unsecured first round picks to the Jazz from 2023, 2025 and 2027.

They are also leaving the top-5 protected pick in 2029.

That trade could very well set up the market for other big trades that could happen this off-season.

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving may also be out...

Rudy Gobert was number 27 in the 2013 NBA Draft and quickly developed into a top-notch starting center.

They had a breakout season in the 2016–17 season and propelled the Jazz to their first of six straight playoffs.

But in those six playoff appearances, the Jazz never progressed past the Western Conference Semifinals.

They were knocked out three times in the first round.

Now the Timberwolves have a real star who could pair with Karl-Anthony Towns and potentially score a deep playoff run for the first time in 15 years.

Meanwhile, jazz star guard Donovan is set to form around Mitchell.
