In that event, D'Angelo Russell has been among those linked to the Lakers.

Amid all of this, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been mentioned as a potential landing spot for Russell, especially because star center Karl-Anthony Towns desperately wants the team to bring Russell on board.

Russell, an All-Star for the first time with Brooklyn this past season, is set to hit restricted free agency, meaning Brooklyn is able to match any contract he signs.

The Timberwolves - with Towns and aggressive new president Gersson Rosas in the room - are going to meet with the Nets' restricted free agent, reports Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Nets free agent guard D'Angelo Russell is being courted by several teams, the Timberwolves among them.

Russell had a career year in 2018-19 and was a finalist for the Most Improved Player Award.

Tottenham edge closer to Tanguy Ndombele deal for club record fee
Meanwhile, Spurs continue to be linked with a move for another midfielder in the form of Lyon's Tanguy Ndombele . During his two seasons with Lyon , Ndombele has featured 96 times for them, scoring four and assisting 16.

The buzz around the league for a while has been Minnesota had a new home for Andrew Wiggins and his remaining four years, $122 million.

While the Nets have salary cap space to sign Irving outright, they would need to renounce the rights to Russell, making him an unrestricted free agent, in order to pair him with Kevin Durant or another All-Star player.

The other option is to move both Jeff Teague and Gorgui Dieng to teams that can absorb their salaries and send nothing back.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, a rival executive has said that the Timberwolves will not only succeed in dealing Wiggins this offseason, but that they will have a chance to land a "net-neutral" return in the trade.

Russell is 6-foot-5 and was the second overall pick by the Lakers out of Ohio State in 2015.
