The 2021-22 playoffs were not kind to Minnesota Timberwolves guard D’Angelo Russell (Dlo). During the best of seven series against the Memphis Grizzlies, Russell averaged a pedestrian 12 points per game (PPG). He put out an underwhelming performance in those six games, shooting 33 percent from the field overall and an abysmal 29 percent on two-point attempts.

D’Angelo Russell is the Biggest Winner of the Rudy Gobert Trade

After the smoke had cleared and enough time had passed to digest the Rudy Gobert mega-trade in full, I couldn’t help but be so optimistic about what the 7-foot-1 Frenchman could do for one Timberwolf in general.
