Minnesota should have easily gotten a better return for Russell.
D Russell is an expiring contract and will be an unrestricted free agent. Hard to get give up much value when you are unsure if he'll stick around. He wants a major payday too -- more than he is worth.
I agree it is a disappointing return but I am not sure they could have done better.
Tough situation. They waited too long to trade him. Should have done it last year or at least last summer if he wasn't going to be in their long term plans.
