"While it's difficult to part ways with three outstanding young men who have been such an important part of this team and this community, this move provides us additional flexibility as we continue to reshape our roster into one positioned for long-term success," said David Kahn, Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations. "I want to thank Sebastian, Craig and Mark for all their contributions to this organization and wish them the best of luck moving forward. I expect them to be key parts of next season's Clippers team."
