Robert Covington says he found out he was traded on social media

Covington was traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Minnesota Timberwolves in November

Robert Covington is one of the players who were involved in the Philadelphia-Minnesota trade as he moved from the 76ers to the Timberwolves.

It’s almost been two months since the trade, but the way he learned he was traded still leaves a bitter taste in Covington’s mouth.

“I found out on social media,” he said (via “It was like five minutes before the team meeting, then Brett [Brown, the Sixers’ coach] called me and EB [general manager Elton Brand] called me, but I already knew. By then it was already out there. That’s how I found out.”
