Trae Young had 38 points and 11 rebounds and John Collins added 27 points and 12 rebounds to lead Atlanta past Minnesota 127-120 on Wednesday as the teams braced for major roster shifts. Collins had his fifth straight double-double for the Hawks.

Andrew Wiggins scored 25 and Josh Okogie 23 to lead the Wolves, who made it a game with a late 19-7 run in a too-little, too-late bid. Karl-Anthony Towns finished with 21 points as Minnesota lost its 13th straight game.

The bigger news was Atlanta and Minnesota are part of a four-team, 12-player deal a day ahead of the league's trade deadline.

According to the NBA, Minnesota acquired the Brooklyn Nets’ 2020 first-round pick (from Atlanta), guard Malik Beasley (from Denver), forward Juancho Hernangomez (from Denver), guard/forward Evan Turner (from Atlanta) and forward Jarred Vanderbilt (from Denver) as part of a 12-player, four-team trade involving the Timberwolves, Atlanta Hawks, Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets. In the deal, Minnesota sends Jordan Bell and Robert Covington to Houston and Keita Bates-Diop, Shabazz Napier and Noah Vonleh to Denver.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3:00 PM Eastern Time.
