No Timberwolves trade expected, for nowPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the St. Paul Pioneer Press reporting on the Timberwolves, who for now aren’t expected to make any trades. Of course, most teams don’t exactly admit it in advance. Still, here:
Don’t expect the Timberwolves to make a trade before the deadline February 20.
Flip Saunders, the Wolves president of basketball operations, told Wolves Now that he has talked with representatives of teams to gauge interest, “but I’m not hearing anything imminent.”
Saunders said there is a reluctance to deal around the league because of the perception that this year’s draft class is strong. Buzz has centered on possible top picks being Kansas’ Joel Embiid and Andrew Wiggins, Duke’s Jabari Parker, Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart, Kentucky’s Julius Randle and Dante Exum of Australia.
