The Minnesota Timberwolves officially announced the team acquired three second-round picks and sent Wes Johnson and a future first to Phoenix in a trade that also involved the New Orleans Hornets.

David Kahn: "This trade frees up salary cap space for us as we pursue adding additional players to our roster. We thank Wes for his two seasons in Minnesota and wish him the best in Phoenix."
