The Memphis Grizzlies are trading Patrick Beverley to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Jarrett Culver and Juancho Hernangomez, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Beverley was just dealt to the Grizzlies from the Los Angeles Clippers on Aug. 15 and he is now on the move again after spending the last four seasons with the Clippers.
Timberwolves president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas worked in the Houston Rockets’ front office when Beverley played there, so Rosas knows what he brings.
Beverley will bring toughness and leadership to a young, developing Timberwolves’ roster.
The 33-year-old will also give the Timberwolves more point guard depth after they traded Ricky Rubio to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In 37 games last season, Beverley averaged 7.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
The Grizzlies on the other hand, will add more young potential in Culver who’s only 22 and a former No. 6 overall pick in 2019.
Hernangomez being dealt seemed likely after there was reportedly tension between him and the Timberwolves after the team’s medical staff didn’t allow the 25-year-old to play for Spain at the Tokyo Olympics due to a shoulder injury.
