The Timberwolves did a lot wheeling and dealing on Friday.

The wolves traded away former 1st round pick Wesley Johnson, who had two disappointing years in Minnesota, accumulating only 7.5 points a game over his first two years in the league.

The Timberwolves made the move to make cap space, and with it signed former Utah Jazz star Andrei Kirilenko to a 2 year, 20 million dollar deal.

Kirilenko is currently playing for the Russian Olympic Basketball team in London.
