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.
If Towns becomes available, almost every team around the league will be scrambling to put their best trade package together for the 25-year-old center, but who could put together one of the better deals for the T-Wolves?
The New Orleans Pelicans are definitely an “under-the-radar” team when it comes to having the ability to trade for Towns and will plenty of draft picks over the next few years and a lot of young talent, they could actually put together a decent sized trade package that could be of interest to the Timberwolves.
So what exactly can they offer up? Let’s take a look at what the Pelicans would have to give up to have a shot at convincing Minnesota to trade Karl-Anthony Towns.
