Minnesota sends Dario Saric to Phoenix to move up in draft

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dario Saric has been traded to the Phoenix Suns in a draft-pick swap.

What It Means:

The Timberwolves are moving up in the draft, shipping off Saric and the No. 11 pick in return for Phoenix' No. 6 overall selection. Moving Saric also gives the Timberwolves added flexibility in free agency this summer.

In 81 games this season, Saric averaged 10.6 points and 20.6 FanDuel points per game.
