Matchup to Watch
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist vs. Andrew Wiggins: Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick in 2014, versus Kidd-Gilchrist, an elite perimeter defender.
▪ Wiggins and Anthony Bennett arrived in Minnesota as key pieces in the package the Timberwolves accepted from Cleveland for Kevin Love.
▪ The Timberwolves brought back their most iconic player, Kevin Garnett, in a deal with the Brooklyn Nets at the trade deadline.
▪ The Hornets reinserted Kemba Walker into the starting lineup for Friday’s road loss to the Sacramento Kings. Mo Williams became a reserve.
▪ Cody Zeller started versus the Kings after missing about a week with a sprained right shoulder.
