Deal Complete, Timberwolves Also Acquire Kosta Koufos

Al Jefferson has officially been traded after spending three seasons in Minnesota. Jefferson came to the Wolves from Boston as the main part of the Kevin Garnett deal.

In addition to the two first-round draft picks, the Wolves have also acquired Kosta Koufos from the Utah Jazz. According to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune, team president David Kahn plans to flip him to a team that can offer more playing time.

The Wolves and Jazz have completed the trade that sends Al Jefferson there for two first-round picks, second-year center Kosta Koufos and that large player trade exception.

David Kahn just said here in Las Vegas that he has already talked to Koufos’ agent and will try to move Koufos on a team where he might play more than on a Wolves team that now has Kevin Love, Michael Beasley, Darko Milicic and soon Nikola Pekovic.
