NBA rumors: Ed Davis traded to Timberwolves

More on Ed Davis Trade?

Ian Begley: Source confirms Jacob Evans has been acquired by Knicks via trade with Minnesota. ESPN reports Omari Spellman and a second round pick are also coming to New York in exchange for Ed Davis. Knicks have acquired 3 second-round picks in acquiring/trading Davis’ $5 million salary.
Bobby Marks: T'Wolves were facing a roster crunch with 15 players under contract. That number goes down to 14 with the addition of Ed Davis. Jacob Evans- $2M and $3.6M (team option by 12/29) Omari Spellman- $2M and $3.6M (team option by 12/29) Ed Davis is on $5M expiring contract
Jon Krawczynski: One person who will be very happy with the Wolves acquisition of Ed Davis: D'Angelo Russell. The two played together in Brooklyn. Davis is very highly thought of as a teammate.
But after seven-plus NBA seasons for four different teams, Ed Davis knows what he thinks about an organization, and his desire to stay in a city doesn’t mean much when it comes to the NBA’s trading deadline. The NBA is a business and sometimes, business can be cold. “I talked about it with my lady last night,’’ Davis said. “There’s a good chance that something could happen. We have to be prepared for it.’’
Within the Blazers’ locker room, emotions run deep for Davis. He is a mentor. As straight-forward as they come. And he is an old soul who is quick to joke, but also doesn’t promote or stand for ulterior or misguided motives. “I’m not jut saying this to say it,’’ team captain Damian Lillard said, “but it don’t get no better than Ed. That’s just the truth.”

Brandon Ingram takes All-Star snub as motivation

Jim Eichenhofer: Brandon Ingram, after being asked how he views not being All-Star: “I took it as motivation. Of course, I’ve got to be self-aware, and say that if it was questioned, maybe I’m not doing enough. Maybe I need to get more wins. I’ll be good enough to not have it questioned anymore.”

“I was happy for some of the first time All-Stars in Zach LaVine, Julius Randle,” Shaw said. “He was a player that I coached in L.A. He has gotten better and better every year. I thought that maybe Damian Lillard should have gotten a starting nod. (I’m also happy for) Jaylen Brown, a guy that played at Cal, who I’m familiar with in the Bay area. For him to get an All-Star nod, I thought that maybe he should have gotten one last year.”
