Under the radar Thursday move:
The Timberwolves announced late Thursday that they have acquired the draft rights to Mathias Lessort, a 2017 second-round pick by Philadelphia who is playing professionally in France, as well as a 2023 second-round pick from the Detroit Pistons as part of a deal that sent the draft rights to Daniel Oturu, the No. 33 pick in Wednesday’s draft, to the Clippers.
Apparently Lessort went to the Knicks, not us:
In the trade, the @Timberwolves send James Johnson, the draft rights to Aleksej Pokuševski and a 2024 Second Round Pick to the Thunder and the draft rights to Mathias Lessort and Detroit’s 2023 Second Round Pick to the Knicks
Dammit, I liked James Johnson. Great leader.
We traded him for a better leader.
