The Timberwolves drafted shooting guard Anthony Edwards with the 1st overall pick in last night's National Basketball Association draft before trading for point guard Ricky Rubio, drafted wing Leandro Bolmaro from Argentina and power forward Jaden McDaniels from the University of Washington.

Johnson opted into his $16-million option for the 2020-21 season on Thursday, according to Charania, and was then sent to Oklahoma City as part of a previously reported trade.

Also headed to Minnesota in the swap would be the No. 25 and No. 28 picks.

Rubio averaged 13 points and 8.8 assists per game last season playing for the Phoenix Suns.

Rubio spent his first six seasons in the league with the Timberwolves, averaging 10.3 points and 8.5 assists.

During his first stint with the Timberwolves, Rubio never played in the playoffs.

The Minnesota Timberwolves want to have multiple initiators on the floor at all times, and everybody loves a good reunion.

Rubio will be coming back to a different organization than the one that traded him to Utah three years ago. A source tells KSTP that the Wolves were preparing to make a run at signing Rubio before he chose to join the Suns.

The Spanish point guard played two seasons alongside Timberwolves All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns from 2015-17.
