So far this season, the Minnesota Timberwolves have continued to lose game after game and as a result, they could end up with the worst record in the NBA for the third time in the last eleven seasons. Not to mention, this will be their 15th losing season in the last 16 seasons.
This organization has been in shambles for years and with just one playoff appearance since 2004, the Minnesota Timberwolves are a team that could be prepared to make some major changes in the offseason.
There have been some NBA trade rumors floating around about the possibility of them trading either Karl-Anthony Towns or D’Angelo Russell in the offseason and while they are just rumors, they definitely hold a lot of weight to them.
With this year’s #1 overall pick Anthony Edwards, along with breakout guard Malik Beasley, the Timberwolves have some young players that they can build with for the future, but they are still a long ways away from being anything special. This is the main reason why Towns could become available, making for one of the biggest trades in the league this offseason.
We saw James Harden get moved in a monumental trade this year that could pay off big time for the Nets should they win a title, and we could see a similar sized trade package in the offseason should the T-Wolves look to trade Towns.
Now, let’s take a look at a hypothetical offseason deal involving multiple teams that would ultimately send Karl-Anthony Towns to the Golden State Warriors.
