Report: Al Jefferson Traded For Two First-Round Draft Picks

Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press tweets that, according to sources, the Minnesota Timberwolves have traded forward Al Jefferson to the Utah Jazz in exchange for two first-round draft picks and a trade exception.

AP Sources: #Jazz get big man Al Jefferson from #Timberwolves for 2 1st-round picks and trade exception from Boozer deal.

The Timberwolves had been in talks with the Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers according to earlier reports, but they were looking to move Jefferson without taking back salary, something they won’t do in this deal.

One of the two draft picks that the Wolves will receive is originally from the Memphis Grizzlies. More information on the second pick should be known soon.
