Minnesota Timberwolves: Two power forward trade options

The Minnesota Timberwolves have improved their roster in a variety of ways since the offseason has begun.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are seemingly in a playoff push this coming season. They have improved their roster, first by selecting Anthony Edwards with the first overall selection, then by trading for Ricky Rubio and re-signing Malik Beasley.

Still, the Timberwolves have to continue to add to their roster, particularly in the front court.

With the quality options on the open market exhausted via free agency, the Timberwolves never had the opportunity to use their full mid-level exception on a player that could slot in as the starting power forward.

Last week, I wrote that Jae Crowder, JaMychal Green, and Paul Millsap were all good potential options, and now all have been signed: Crowder to Phoenix and Green/Millsap both are going to Denver.

While the Timberwolves still have Juan Hernangomez as a restricted free agent, he seems better suited as a depth forward that can come off of the bench and shoot threes – his game does not offer much else.

With Minnesota still needing a quality power forward, their best option might be via trade.
