PLAYER CONTRACTS

Biggest NBA Trades of the 2022 Offseason

From Rudy Gobert to the Timberwolves, Dejounte Murray to the Hawks, and everything in between, Boardroom has your curated breakdown of the most important NBA trades of the summer.

On June 30, free agency and the NBA offseason period began with a thunderclap, as supermax bags and rookie max contract extensions flew around like some kind of luxury tax tornado. And while Nikola Jokic and Devin Booker got their Designated Veteran Player Extensions a bit before Karl-Anthony Towns did, only the latter can say (as of this writing) something extra-special for himself:

His team traded for an All-NBA player currently in his prime who is likely to make the Hall of Fame one day.

In trading for Jazz center Rudy Gobert with a package that includes four first-round draft picks, KAT’s Minnesota Timberwolves set a high bar for the Association’s “single boldest transaction of the summer” championship belt — but that’s not the only trade highlight that promises to shape the course of the next year of basketball and beyond.

Check out Boardroom’s running count of the most important, impactful NBA trades of the summer.
