The Timberwolves are open to possibly landing Clint Capela in Minneapolis.
In the recent inside pass of The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Minnesota reportedly discussed acquiring a veteran center to their lineup, including the Hawks big man.
Capela has been a regular starting center of Atlanta for the previous two seasons. Following their 2021 deep Eastern Conference run, he inked a two-year, $45.9 million deal to stay with the club.
Upon signing the contract, his numbers have dipped this 2021-2022 campaign, averaging 11.1 points, 11.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
As such, if the T-Wolves would manage to gain his service, he’ll potentially be placed at the center spot, with franchise cornerstone Karl-Anthony Towns moving as the stretch big man at the four.
Now being guided by a new leadership of Tim Connelly, the Wolves continue to be active this offseason moments.
On the other hand, the Hawks has been part of regular rumors from the previous weeks — committed to make necessary moves to be back reloaded for contention again.
