Before the start of the Free Agency, the Golden State Warriors activated the ” qualifying offer“ of Jordan Bell . Thus, the interior has the status of protected free agent during this offseason. To summarize, the California franchise has the opportunity to align with all external offers to keep it. And it will be interesting to see the plans of the Dubs for the young talent of 24 years! Indeed, Bell has reached an agreement to join the Minnesota Timberwolves. It’s obviously a one-year contract for $ 1.6 million.
The Warriors have the opportunity to match the Timberwolves’ offer but it appears unlikely because of the recent sign-and-trade with Kevin Durant and D’Angelo Russell.

Bell also had offers from the Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz but the Timberwolves seemed to be the best fit for his game. The Warriors will miss his athleticism and shot-blocking ability. But the organization will turn their attention towards Kevon Looney.
Bell averaged four points, three rebounds and one block per game with the Warriors.
