Timberwolves Trade Wayne Ellington to Grizzlies for Dante Cunningham

by July 17, 2012

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to swap guard Wayne Ellington for forward Dante Cunningham. Via ESPN1500.com, which first reported the deal:  “An official announcement should come in the near future after the paperwork is submitted to the NBA. Cunningham, 25, is set to make $2.09 million in 2012-13. His contract contains a team option for the 2013-14 season. Versatile enough to play both forward positions, Cunningham is an above-average defender. He made a very favorable in-person impression on the Wolves in March when he scored 13 points and grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds in a Grizzlies win. He played power forward in that game. Portland originally selected Cunningham 33rd overall out of Villanova in the 2009 NBA draft.”
