On tonight’s pod, I’m joined by Kyle Theige after the Minnesota Timberwolves’ loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. We discuss:

  • Did that loss suggest that this team may need to make yet another change at the trade deadline?
  • Will the re-insertion of D’Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley be the Wolves’ trade deadline move?
  • If the Wolves do make a move at the deadline, which of these three doors might they take and what would each door mean for the future?

Door 1: Standing pat and making no moves — rolling with the roster as currently constructed, betting on the foursome of Beasley, Russell, Edwards and Towns

Door 2: Making moves on the margins, perhaps as a third-team facilitator, to pile up end of the roster pieces into other small assets

Door 3: Landing a big fish — a la John Collins, Aaron Gordon or Larry Nance Jr.
