Timberwolves president of basketball operations and head coach Tom Thibodeau may be growing impatient with his young roster and looking to make a trade, per a report from Bleacher Report.
According to the report, Thibodeau is open to dealing one of the Wolves’ young standouts for a veteran who can help the team win now.
“His first look will be for a player he already knows and trusts because he’s already had that player in his system,” Bleacher Report wrote. “Would the Lakers consider advancing their youth movement and dealing former Bull Luol Deng? Would the Bulls consider parting with Jimmy Butler or Taj Gibson?”
Also according to the report: “Where Thibs looks is not certain, nor is who he’d be willing to move.But those in the league who know his hunger to win and win now are convinced he will begin calling around soon, if he hasn’t already.”
Despite a roster loaded with dynamic young players such as Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, Zach Lavine and others, the Timberwolves had won a measly four of their first 14 games.
