ESPN’s Brian Windhorst is reporting the TWolves are looking for frontcourt help.
Who could they target? Here are a few possibilities.
1) Willie Cauley Stein (Kings): WCS is very much on the trading block and it’s no secret he isn’t happy playing behind Boogie and Koufus.
2) Kosta Koufus (Kings): Another Kings big man. Playing behind Boogie seems to automatically put you on the trading block.
3) Kenneth Faired (Nuggets): Out of these 4 players listed, Faried is the one I’d pick to get traded to Minnesota. KAT, LaVine and Wiggins provide plenty of scoring, and defensibly is where the help is needed. Faried has been on the block for the last 2-3 years it seems. High energy defensive player who wouldn’t need to contribute much on the offensive end in Minnesota.
4) Greg Monroe (Bucks): Listing Monroe here, another big who’s opening on the trading block. If Minnesota doesn’t have to fish up a lot to bring in Monroe, this could be an ideal partnership.
