NBA Trade Rumors: Minnesota Timberwolves to target Jameer Nelson?


The Minnesota Timberwolves aren’t exactly in dire needs of a point guard, but they’d like to improve their current core which is why they’re reportedly interested in Jameer Nelson of the Orlando Magic.

Minnesota is said to be interested in Denver Nuggets point guard Andre Miller, who has all but been banished from the team, but if the two teams are unable to find a middle ground Nelson could be Minnesota’s backup plan.

If JJ is dealt to Memphis by Thursday, point guard Wolves target as replacement could be Jameer Nelson rather than Andre Miller

Of course, a lot has to happen for such a move to take place as J.J. Barea would need to be traded and the potential Miller trade would need to not take place.

It’s not know what Orlando would be looking for in return, though, they’re not said to have a high price tag for Nelson who can be a free agent at season end given his contract for the 2014-15 season is not fully guaranteed.
