Omari Spellman sends farewell message to Warriors fans on Instagram


D'Angelo Russell is not the only player the Warriors traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Omari Spellman and Jacob Evans have been shipped to Minnesota as well.

Spellman took to Instagram to express his feelings on the move.

The Warriors acquired Spellman -- the No. 30 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft -- from the Atlanta Hawks last July in exchange for Damian Jones and a 2026 second-round pick.

In 49 games (three starts) this season, the big man is averaging 7.6 points and 4.5 rebounds, while shooting over 39 percent from 3-point territory.

In late October, Golden State picked up his 2020-21 option, so the 22-year-old is guaranteed to make just under $2 million next season.

More importantly, Spellman turned his life around with the Warriors and is in a much better place physically and mentally moving forward.
