NBA Rumors: Minnesota Timberwolves say they are going to make offseason moves

The Minnesota Timberwolves need help and that’s drastically understating things. After a season that was supposed to be a breakout year ended up in the same overflowing toilet that all the other recent seasons have landed, it’s become more apparent than ever that serious offseason changes need to be made.

With Kevin Love likely only with the team for another season at best, it appears that the Wolves need to go all-in now to show Love they’re dedicated to becoming instant winners and news that the team is planning offseason trades is encouraging. However, owner Glen Taylor has noted that while trades are going to happen, they won’t be big ones.

This can be interpreted a number of ways as some of the more cynical fans will hear this as Taylor talking down bringing in a big name while others may read it as Taylor saying a trade made won’t involve Kevin Love.

Either way, this is a make or break offseason for the Timberwolves and news that trades are already in the conversation is encouraging to downtrodden fans everywhere.
