The Minnesota Timberwolves did nothing at the trade deadline. On today’s pod, we breakdown what the Wolves’ inactivity signals by parsing Gersson Rosas’ post-deadline press conference. Topics include:
- Thought you were a big trade guy, Rosas. What’s up?
- Rosas said there were trades for “high-end” players out there but that price would have been too steep. What would have a Wolves Aaron Gordon trade have looked like? John Collins?
- The still glaring hole at power forward. Rosas predicament of McDaniels at PF or a traditional second big next to KAT
- How will the re-insertion of Malik Beasley and then D’Angelo Russell impact the “critical development” of Anthony Edwards?
- The Russell and Ricky Rubio pairing at the beginning of the season didn’t work. Will we see it again? If not, what is Rubio’s future with the franchise?
