STEPHEN MARBURYGame 522 | November 12, 1997 | Glen Taylor, Stephen Marbury
The biggest trade in the early history of the Minnesota Timberwolves occurred immediately after the 1996 draft when they shipped Ray Allen to Milwaukee for Marbury, the All-American point guard from Georgia Tech. Owner Taylor's original plan was to team the explosive Marbury with the rapidly developing Kevin Garnett. Marbury was named to the NBA All-Rookie team, and the pair led the Timberwolves into the NBA playoffs in both 1997 and 1998.
