Golden State Warriors: Will Andrew Wiggins gamble pay off?

The Warriors and Timberwolves pulled off perhaps the biggest deal of the NBA trade deadline. Minnesota got their man in D’Angelo Russell, who they had been tracking since last summer, while Golden State opted for a better fit in forward Andrew Wiggins. Which team came out with a better future? Ben Golliver and Michael Pina of the Open Floor podcast debate.

Ben Golliver: I think the D’Angelo Russell vs. Andrew Wiggins trade was kind of juicy. First off, I don’t think any of these guys are really that good. I think I have been one of Russell’s loudest critics over the years and I feel very vindicated because Golden State put together the craziest sign and trade to get him last summer and they went into the full PR defense mechanism of, ‘Oh yeah, we think he can work with Stephen Curry and everything else.’
