Minnesota to Acquire Leandro Bolmaro in Exchange For Picks

The Minnesota Timberwolves have acquired the rights to Leandro Bolmaro from the New York Knicks in exchange for the No. 25 and No. 33 picks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Bolmaro was selected by New York with the No. 23 pick.

Bolmaro played EuroLeague ball the past two seasons, both with FC Barcelona.

The move gives Minnesota a playmaking forward while allowing the Knicks to gain an additional draft asset for a mere two-pick downgrade.

With the No. 25 pick in the draft, the Knicks drafted Immanuel Quickley out of Kentucky. He’ll join Obi Toppin in New York.
