Critical early injuries to Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin essentially changed the Wolves’ priorities, with coach and president of basketball operations Flip Saunders opting for the chance to develop young players. The Wolves traded veteran forward/guard Corey Brewer to Houston in December and veteran guard Mo Williams to Charlotte in February. “At that point in time, with the direction we were going, that was probably likeliest to happen,” Young said of the trade. “But I think they did a very good job, as far as going out there and shopping around, working with my agent, working with me personally as a player. Just keeping me abreast of the situation. The good thing was, there wasn’t anything behind closed doors or anything going on crazy.’’ Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Statement from Billy King: Today we are pleased to announce that we have made an important trade for our team by acquiring 6-foot-8 power forward Thaddeus Young from the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Kevin Garnett. In his 8th year out of Georgia Tech, Young, 26, is having one of his best seasons, averaging 14. 3 points and 5.1 rebounds. He is a terrific multi-dimensional player who will have an immediate impact on the team. In fact, while I was President of the 76ers in 2007, I drafted him with the 12th pick of the first round and I’m thrilled to bring him to Brooklyn. This trade gives our team more athleticism, speed, and youth, and he will be a great complement on the court with Mason Plumlee and Brook Lopez. NBA.com
