After a great 2021-2022 season, the Minnesota Timberwolves are said to be considering a move for Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert this summer. By ending with a 46-36 overall record and giving the Grizzlies some significant competition in the NBA Playoffs’ first round, many people were astonished by what the Timberwolves accomplished this season.
In Anthony Edwards, the previous first-round selection, and in seasoned All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns, the team seems to have a stable and talented core. It’s now all about finding the perfect supporting cast for the pair and making an NBA Finals run. It’s possible that Gobert may be the missing piece, according to one NBA analyst.
Going forward, the Timberwolves are keeping a close eye on Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, according to BasketballNews.com‘s Evan Sidery. Minnesota and Chicago are closely monitoring the situation surrounding the three-time Defensive Player of the Year.
How Timberwolves plan to snatch Gobert
A squad that has yet to realize its full potential may be improved if the Timberwolves were prepared to trade Rudy Gobert. They must trade D’Angelo Russell and the $31 million he will earn next season if they are going to make the money work.
Also said to be on the Timberwolves’ radar is Atlanta Hawks center Clint Capela, who is said to be up for grabs. Clearly, Minnesota are interested in bolstering the strength of their frontcourt.
