The future of Ben Simmons might be decided in the coming few weeks. The 25-year-old has reportedly made it clear he has no plans to return to Philadelphia. Following this huge revelation, it is only a matter of time before Simmons dons another team's uniform for the 2021-22 NBA season.
One of the contenders to acquire Simmons is the Minnesota Timberwolves. Minnesota has been stuck at the bottom of the barrel for a lot of seasons now. Despite having two great players in D'Angelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns, the franchise has struggled to make it to the playoffs.
Maybe adding Simmons to the mix would solve this long-lasting issue. Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley certainly believes if Ben comes to Minnesota, the team will improve.
Beverley earlier tweeted about it, writing "Facts" on a tweet by Ben Stinar about the aforementioned trade.
While Beverley is certainly excited about this potential trade, NBA fans believe if this trade were to go down, Pat Bev will be included in the trade package. As a result, the former LA Clippers guard was trolled by a lot of fans for his reaction.
Like most fans pointed out, it would be almost impossible for the Timberwolves to get Ben Simmons without giving up a star-caliber player. Furthermore, Pat Bev will most likely be included in the trade and it might be possible that the franchise only got him for fulfilling that purpose.
It has not been a great offseason for Beverley, as he was first traded to the Memphis Grizzlies from the LA Clippers. Later on, the Timberwolves acquired him from the Grizzlies.
Now, if the Timberwolves want to trade for Ben Simmons, they will probably include Beverley in that trade package.
The 33-year-old is struggling to find a home. While he might not be a great shooter, he is definitely a good defender and can lock down the opposing team's point guard quite well.
Where do you think Pat Beverley will play next season? Will he stay with the Timberwolves or will be traded for the third time in the same offseason? Feel free to share your opinions in the comments section below.
