Unless GSW can make Wiggins into a remotely productive player relative to his contract then they'll have to give up assets for teams to take him opposed to teams giving up anything for him. 30m a year
There's a reason why the TWolves had to give up a 1st and 2nd round pick to get rid of him. GSW had to do something with Russell with Steph and Klay coming back.
I'd imagine they were a little disappointed in Russell's production after his all star year. Russell ranked around 150th in the league in WS/48, roughly around as valuable as Lonzo.
Wiggins ended up about 10 places lower, to me, its effectively two teams that know they've overpaid but realise that a swap at least fits better.
Russell is worth more because he's at least flirted with being productive, 17th in OPBM for example but both are laughing on those salaries.
I do hope the Bucks get a sign & trade if Giannis leaves but I hope its somewhat decent.
Perhaps something built around Porzingis if the Mavs have questions around fit & health. That looks like the highest ceiling deal available
