Timberwolves Don't Get David Lee

Despite a nine hour visit and numerous sign-and-trade possibilities, forward David Lee will not be a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The free agent has agreed to a deal with the Golden State Warriors and will head to the West Coast in a sign-and-trade deal that will send Anthony Randolph and two other players to the New York Knicks.

Lee’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, told ESPN.com that Lee has agreed to a sign-and-trade worth $80 million dollars over six years with the Golden State Warriors.

“There was a lot of different ways this could have gone and I needed [the Knicks] to help,” Bartelstein said. “They were great about it.”

The deal will send Lee to the Warriors for Anthony Randolph, Ronny Turiaf and Kelenna Azubuike among others.
