The Utah Jazz agreed to trade center Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a blockbuster deal that will pair him with fellow All-Star big man Karl-Anthony Towns, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Timberwolves will send Malik Beasley, Patrick Beverley, Jarred Vanderbilt, Leandro Bolmaro, No. 22 pick Walker Kessler and four first-round picks to the Jazz, sources said.
Utah will acquire unprotected picks in 2023, 2025 and 2027 and a top-five-protected pick in 2029, sources said, in Danny Ainge's first franchise-altering deal since taking over as the Jazz's CEO midseason.
The Jazz have now gathered a total of six first-round picks in a 24-hour span and plan to retool
the roster around Donovan Mitchell, Utah's 25-year-old All-Star guard.
Gobert, 30, has spent his entire nine-year career in Utah, developing from a lanky project
who was drafted with the No. 27 pick in 2013 into a perennial All-Star who has been a franchise cornerstone for a team that has made six consecutive playoff appearances.
The 7-foot Frenchman is one of the most decorated players in Jazz history, with three Defensive Player of the Year awards, three All-Star appearances, four All-NBA selections and six first-team All-Defensive selections.
He thanked Utah in a tweet, saying he "felt embraced and supported since day one."
I've grown as a man and as a player before your very eyes and I'm thankful [for] every single moment," Gobert wrote
