The Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to make a big push back into the playoff picture for the first time in over a decade. They already traded for Jimmy Butler on the night of the 2017 NBA Draft and gave up some of their young assets in Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and swapping their number seven pick for the Chicago Bulls 16th pick. And they weren’t done there.
On the eve of the 2017 NBA free agency period, the Wolves made a trade with the Utah Jazz and sent their longtime point guard Ricky Rubio out of town for a 2018 first round draft pick.
Following comes from Marc Stein of ESPN and former Timberwolves radio voice Chad Hartman.
