Aside from Alex Rodriguez joining the ownership group that is buying both the Timberwolves and Lynx, the Minnesota Timberwolves really have not been in the news much this NBA offseason.

They did make a move to bring in Patrick Beverley and Taurean Prince at the expense of Ricky Rubio, Jarrett Culver and Juancho Hernaomgez, but Minnesota is still looking for ways to get Karl-Anthony Towns the help he needs. 

In six full seasons now, Towns has only been to the playoffs with Minnesota once and his team has gone 185-279 since he was drafted 1st overall in 2015. From Zach LaVine to Jimmy Butler to now D’Angelo Russell, the Timberwolves have searched for the right All-Stars to pair with their young leader, which is why they could look to make one last big move in attempts to become an eye-opening team in the Western Conference. 

Ben Simmons has been made available in trade talks all offseason long and the Timberwolves have remained highly interested in him for the last month or so now.

The Philadelphia 76ers have stated that they want a big return for Simmons, including another All-Star talent, so a third team may very well have to get involved in any deal that would send the Sixers’ young talent to Minnesota, but could the Timberwolves actually bring in the 3x All-Star? 

Pairing Simmons with Towns creates a tall and strong one-two punch in the Western Conference and with other young talents on the Timberwolves’ roster, they may finally be able to climb their way out of the bottom of the standings out west. It would take a lot, but Minnesota remains highly interested in trading for Ben Simmons.
