The Minnesota Timberwolves are in the midst of a three-game winning streak. Back-to-back wins versus the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder give fans a glimpse into what the future looks like in Minnesota – but does that future contain the current starting lineup?
Amid the small glories of the winning streak, trade rumors linger in the background. The inklings could swell to a fever pitch as the February 23 trade deadline approaches. The offseason saw a flurry of trade rumors nearly come to fruition on draft day. A combination of point guard Ricky Rubio, shooting guard Zach LaVine, and the fifth overall draft pick was almost dealt, supposedly to the Chicago Bulls for shooting guard Jimmy Butler.
