It's true that everyone knew this trade could blow up, but there's "blowing up" and then there's "your big acquisition is punching teammates in the face while getting the 8th seed in the first year of the deal."My guess is that the Wolves make a difficult decision and bite the bullet by moving on from Kyle Anderson first. That's far easier and less of an admission of defeat than shipping Gobert off for draft capital and end-of-bench lint.
Everyone knew this deal had the potential to blow up on Minnesota including probably the Wolves. It would be surprising, however, if they moved on this quickly absent an incredible offer.
I suppose they could reset things, pick-wise, by dealing KAT and building around ANT/Gobert. That is probably more palatable than the full blowup they really need.
