Minnesota Timberwolves v Utah Jazz

On today’s show, Dane is joined by Britt Robson of MinnPost to discuss Friday’s blockbuster Rudy Gobert trade, and to hit on the news of the Kyle Anderson signing.

Dane and Britt get into the magnitude of the Gobert deal, highlighting the great upside this all-in move creates and also acknowledging the serious risk of the move given the load of outgoing assets to Utah.

Many topics are breached from Gobert’s fit next to Karl-Anthony Towns, down to how Gobert might have the most profoundly positive impact on D’Angelo Russell of all people.

— How will the Wolves’ infrastructure benefit Gobert more than Utah’s did?

— Will Chris Finch need to spend more time figuring out the offense or the defense during training camp?

— Who will determine how successful the Timberwolves’ offense will be next season bringing Gobert into the fold?

— Projecting how the Wolves will rank on offense and defense next season

— What is a realistic expectation for total wins next season?

— Attempting to quantify the value of what Minnesota gave up to acquire Gobert

— How will Anderson fit into the front-court rotation next to Towns and Gobert?
