Rudy Gobert reveals why Jazz traded him to Timberwolves


During Wednesday’s introductory press conference, big man Rudy Gobert speaks on why the Utah Jazz traded him to the Minnesota Timberwolves, via New York Post:

“It’s a good question. Sometimes the window for winning is not always big, and for us in Utah, that’s kind of what happened. I think the organization felt like that we had maybe passed that window that we had over the last few years,” Gobert told reporters in his first comments since being traded.

“I think they’re still obviously going to be a very competitive team. It just felt like with all the assets they could get for me, that it was better for them to go that way.”
