Report: Minnesota Timberwolves Want Pau Gasol

by February 16, 2012

According to Fox Sports, the Timberwolves would be willing to trade rookie Derrick Williams and some draft picks for Laker big man Pau Gasol (which sounds like a stretch): “A source said Wednesday that Minnesota continues to pursue a possible trade for Lakers forward Pau Gasol, dangling rookie Derrick Williams, who is from the Los Angeles area, and draft choices. The only players considered untouchable by the Timberwolves, who are seeking to add a veteran by the trade deadline, are Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. The Timberwolves believe it could be enticing for Gasol to play on the same team as fellow Spaniard Rubio.”
