Minnesota Timberwolves Roster
- Western Northwest
- Target Center
The Minnesota Timberwolves have traded for big man Ed Davis, sending Omari Spellman and Jacob Evans to the Knicks. Davis reunites with former Nets teammate D'Angelo Russell. Davis is a hard-nosed player who'll provide useful defense and can set screens for the offense, but his projected role won't be on that's conducive to fantasy basketball leagues, unless you need rebounding help in an extremely deep league.
Forward Juan Hernangomez has agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal to stay with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Traded to Minny in February, Hernangomez played 14 games for the team, starting all of them and averaging 12.9 points and 7.3 rebounds per game, plus shooting 42 percent from deep on his way to 2.4 made threes per game. Likely to start again, he may cede some usage to rookie Anthony Edwards, but Hernangomez should still get enough work to be a solid late-round fantasy addition.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to a four-year, $60 million deal with guard Malik Beasley. Beasley was traded to Minnesota in February, starting all 14 games after the deal and averaging 20.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game while shooting 42.6 percent from three. If that version of Beasley is what we get going forward, he'd be a strong fantasy sleeper this year. But with such a limited sample size -- and the fact Beasley is currently facing drug charges -- there's a lot of risk here. This feels like an overpay for Minnesota, especially since they just drafted Anthony Edwards.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Juan Hernangomez was extended the qualifying offer by the organization. He played well during his short time with the Wolves last season. Sadly, it was only a 14 game sample size and the team was without Karl-Anthony Towns during most of those contests. The Wolves will be able to match any offer that Hernangomez receives during the offseason. There is a good chance that Hernangomez lands in the Wolves starting five next season. He could be a late-round option on draft day, assuming he stays in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to a draft-day trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Timberwolves are acquiring Ricky Rubio, who began his career with the team, as well as the 25th and 28th picks in the 2020 draft, in exchange for a package that includes the 17th overall pick this year. Rubio will bring a much-needed veteran presence to the Timberwolves and will likely slot in as the team's starting point guard beside D'Angelo Russell.
