NBA player profile for Taj Gibson with stats and fantasy analysis

TAJ
GIBSON

Nov. 10, 2018 - Taj has been having an awesome season, but with the Timberwolves’ acquisition of Dario Saric and Robert Covington, Minnesota now has a boost of three point shooting talent it can place next to Rose, Wiggins, and Towns. This is a great trade for both teams considering the circumstances, but Taj might find himself losing some playing time and moving back into a bench role. He is a favorite of his coach, which could delay this inevitable move, but Taj simply can not stretch the floor enough to steal minutes from Saric.
