Hayward traded to Thunder

Just announced tonight, the Timberwolves have traded Lazar Hayward to the Oklahoma City Thunder for two second-round draft picks and guard Robert Vaden.

Vaden has been waived immediately to make room for JJ Barea, who was just signed yesterday.

The move means nothing more than explained above: just an opportunity to cut the roster down to 15. With this the Wolves may officially be done with moves for the offseason. The only move I foresee is a blockbuster having to do with Michael Beasley but even that will likely wait until the trade deadline. But from what I can tell, the roster is fit as is with only one glaring weakness at shooting guard. They’ll likely keep this core together through training camp and in to the season.
