Minnesota Timberwolves Exploring A Kyrie Irving Trade For Andrew Wiggins

Minnesota Timberwolves Exploring A Kyrie Irving Trade For Andrew Wiggins”

It's been three weeks since Kyrie Irving requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers, but the team still hasn't come close to dealing the point guard. As it turned out, Tom Thibodeau was able to pull off the trade without giving up Wiggins, giving the Wolves every right to feel great about the future even if they make no other splash moves. And because of that, the Phoenix Suns and Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly have emerged as front-runners.

Cleveland is under no obligation to appease Irving.

The report added that the Cavs would wait for a package that resembles the Carmelo Anthony trade to New York Knicks in 2011.

Then again, if the Cavs are more motivated to deal Irving than they're letting on, you could see things progressing this offseason.

Andrew Wiggins wants a max deal and the Timberwolves want to give him one, so it's just a matter of particulars now.

Wiggins, who averaged a career-high 23.6 PPG, 4 RPG and 2.3 APG last season, is eligible for a rookie extension prior to the October 16 deadline.

Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland, as reported by Brian Windhorst of ESPN late last week. Nowhere is Wiggins mentioned - ostensibly because he would nearly certainly be part of an outgoing trade ... and because he is clearly No. 3 in the Wolves' Big Three. With three years under the belt, Wiggins could potentially take his game to a new level under the tutelage of LeBron James. "But for now, most Irving suitors are using the Minnesota Timberwolves-Chicago Bulls trade model for Jimmy Butler, a scaled-down model of Melo's rich return of assets", Wojnarowski wrote on Thursday. Nor have they ruled out starting the season and reaching the December 15 date when free agents signed in the summer are eligible to be included in trades, league sources said.

It appears Kyrie Irving could wind up playing in the Western Conference next season. Moreover, two of the team's best players happens to really like the idea of playing with him.

Whether or not Minnesota trades for Irving, they are expected to be much better next season after missing the playoffs every year since 2004.
