Minnesota Timberwolves: Players on the Trading Block

It will be interesting to see who the Wolves may trade before the February deadline.

The key for any trades will be how the move affects the team’s “culture”, something they need to show they are really stepping towards improving.

Minnesota has plenty of cap space and draft picks, which hopefully bodes well for the Wolves.

While there are only five or six keeper players from the Wolves, let’s look at who could be traded and what we could get in return.

Ryan Gomes

His contract comes off the books after this upcoming season, and he could be an asset to another young, upcoming team that needs depth at the three and the four spots. What could we get? Second round pick, cash, and a young bench player that needs some playing time, i.e J.R Giddens or Bill Walker.

Oleksiy Pecherov

His contract comes off the books this upcoming season, and the fact of the matter is, if Kevin Love is his old self, there's no playing time for Pecherov. Personally, I am more confident with Love shooting threes than Pecherov. What could we get? More than likely, just a second round pick.
