Daniels traded to Timberwolves

Former VCU sharpshooter Troy Daniels has been traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Troy1Daniels went undrafted in the 2013 NBA Draft but worked his way into a Houston Rocket’s roster spot after setting an NBA D-League record for three-pointers made before even completing a full season.

Daniels and two second round picks were acquired to the Timberwolves in exchange for eight-year vet Corey Brewer and Ronny Turiaf.

“I was shocked. I was shocked,” Daniels said in an interview with FOX26 Sports. “The great part about it is, it’s still the NBA.

“I can go hopefully play a lot more.”

Daniels had averaged 2.7 points per contest in 6.4 minutes per game this season with the Rockets.
