The D'Angelo Russell era in Golden State reportedly is coming to an end.

The Warriors are trading Russell -- along with Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman -- to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for forward Andrew Wiggins and draft picks, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Over 33 games in a Dubs uniform, Russell averaged a career-high 23.6 points, to go along with 6.2 assists. He shot 43 percent overall and 37.4 percent from deep.

The Warriors acquired the 2019 Eastern Conference All-Star in the sign-and-trade transaction last July that sent Kevin Durant to the Brooklyn Nets.

Wiggins -- who will turn 25 years old on Feb. 23 -- is averaging 22.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game this season. He is shooting 44.4 percent from the field and 33.1 percent from beyond the arc.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft is owed $29.5 million next season, $31.6 million in 2021-22 and $33.6 million the following year.
