Los Angeles Clippers Receive: Ricky Rubio

Minnesota Timberwolves Receive: Patrick Beverley, Terrance Mann, Mfiondu Kabengele

Patrick Beverley has been forced to step into the starting roll for the Clippers. He is a player who would benefit from coming off the bench and being a spark. This is why he would be going to Minnesota, along with Terrence Mann.

The Clippers would get a veteran point guard who could start right away in Ricky Rubio. He is an excellent passer and someone who would help the dynamic of their offense even further.

There aren’t many options available for floor general point guards that can also defend. Rubio is one of the few role player options and with the Timberwolves struggling, could Minnesota look to trade him to a contender like the Clippers?

Let’s take a closer look and see how this day would benefit both sides the season.
