BIOGRAPHY

D'Angelo Russell currently plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves. 

Born on February 23, 1996 in Louisville, Kentucky, he is listed at 6' 4" and weighs 193 lbs. While not exactly an undersized two-guard, Russell is capable of playing both guard spots. 

Russell went to high school at the famed Monteverde Academy (FL). A top high school recruit, nearly every blue-blood in the country went after him. Eventually, though, Russell committed to play for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

After an absolutely stellar collegiate season, the Los Angeles Lakers selected D’Angelo Russsell with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. He entered the league with a good amount of fanfare, with Los Angeles fans hoping he would usher the franchise into a new era.

His career was a bit of a slow burn. While no one would claim he was bluntly awful when with the Purple and Gold, Russell began to show his true potential during his time with the Brooklyn Nets. Since then, he’s been an outstanding offensive player.

During his NBA career, he also played 2 seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, 2 seasons with the Brooklyn Nets, and 1 season with the Golden State Warriors. 

He joined the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2020.
