In his third NBA season, 24-year old Dario Šarić has been traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves from the Philadelphia 76ers, ESPN has reported. Arguably Croatia’s best basketball player, ‘The Homie’ has averaged 30 minutes, 11 points and six rebounds for the Sixers this year in what was expected to be a season that ended with at least an Eastern Conference semifinals appearance.
Šarić, Robert Covington, Jaryd Bayless and a 2022 2nd Round pick are going to the Wolves while the Sixers receive disgruntled All-Star Jimmy Butler and Justin Patton.
The Wolves have a young core with Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony-Towns leading the way. Šarić and his outside shooting should play nicely in Minnesota.
