Brian Windhorst sent Twitter into a frenzy Friday morning with a long, winding tale of how something strange was going on with the Utah Jazz. The veteran ESPN NBA insider knew something was afoot, but couldn’t quite spell it out. When the Jazz traded Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday afternoon, Windhorst officially became the NBA’s Nostradamus.

O’Neal might be Utah’s best defender and is a solid starter on the wing. To surrender that for what will likely be a mid-round pick seemed strange.
