The Wolves announced on Monday that the team has acquired Shabazz Napier, Treveon Graham and other considerations from the Warriors in exchange for the rights to Lior Eliyahu.
Napier and Graham were part of the blockbuster sign-and-trade of D'Angelo Russell. Napier could very well earn the backup job if the Wolves decide not to match the offer sheet Tyus Jones has signed with the Grizzlies. This was simply a salary dump for the Warriors as Eliyahu, who was acquired by the Wolves via trade with the Rockets back in 2012, is not expected to join the team any time soon.
