Warriors forward Jordan Bell might end up playing for the Timberwolves next season.
Bell agreed to a guaranteed contract with Minnesota, his agents told Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.
At this point, we don't know the particulars of the deal, but Golden State extended a $1.8 million qualifying offer to Bell last week, making him a restricted free agent. So, the Warriors can match any deal the 24-year-old signs.
The Warriors paid the Bulls $3.5 million for Bell's draft rights in 2017. The Oregon product had a very promising rookie season, but he took a step back in Year 2.
And then, out of nowhere, a dynasty swooped in to bring chaos to the party.
Even for a franchise that has been punched in the gut more often than Rocky Balboa, this one packed a wallop. Afterward, it wasn’t even resignation or devastation that permeated the team, it was disbelief.
This makes you wonder:
Minnesota trying to screw over the Warriors for snatching D'Angelo Russell away? Hahaha https://t.co/5cSfAKsQri— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) July 1, 2019
Check back soon to find out how much money Minnesota is giving Bell.
