Minnesota Timberwolves Rumors
Teams have been inquiring about the Celtics’ first-round draft pick that they will receive from the Brooklyn Nets in June—it figures to be a top-five selection—but there is an understanding that it would come at a cost. As of late Thursday night, a league source said, the Celtics had not engaged in any trade talks of real substance. A report on Thursday linked the Celtics to Timberwolves guard Shabazz Muhammad, but one source said that Boston was not interested in acquiring the 23-year-old before the deadline.
Some “cursory contact” has taken place between the Timberwolves and former Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, sources tell Brian Windhorst, who made his report in an appearance on ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike” show.
Justin Pinotti: You mentioned no Zach LaVine for Tobias Harris. Think Wolves would have interest in him for something else? Good PF fit potentially IMO. – Darren Wolfson: Told Tobias Harris isn’t that available. You’d have to blow them away. #Twolves aren’t moving Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine.
