The Minnesota Timberwolves haven’t been outright active in trade talks, but they have been actively rumored to be involved in trades. While the talks between the Wolves and Memphis Grizzlies have broken down, it appears that other teams are still trying to get in on some action.
According to Christopher Reina of RealGM, the Wolves are getting calls about rookie guard Shabazz Muhammad.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have received trade calls from multiple teams inquiring about the availability of Shabazz Muhammad, a league source tells RealGM.
Muhammad was the 14th overall pick in last June’s draft, but has played sparingly for the Wolves during his rookie season.
Muhammad was a dark horse trade candidate a few months ago when the Wolves first sent him down to the D-League as everyone smelled trouble in paradise. The Wolves have been reluctant to include themselves in trades, with Flip Saunders even saying that midseason trades for losing teams aren’t mathematically that great.
Still, the Wolves are getting scorched for trading possible rookie of the year Trey Burke to acquire Muhammad and they may move on at the deadline if it lands them a piece that keeps Kevin Love happy.
