A new report confirmed recent rumors that the Minnesota Timberwolves are interested in trading for Marcus smart as a replacement for Patrick Beverley.

“Minnesota definitely trying to trade for Marcus Smart,” said Darren Wolfson on SKOR North. “But, unless they include a first-round pick or Jaden McDaniels in addition to Malik Beasley, [a deal] most likely doesn’t get done.”

This season Smart is averaging 11.3 points, 4 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 25 minutes per game for the Celtics.
