After spending the last four years with the Los Angeles Clippers, Patrick Beverley was traded twice in three days. The veteran point guard is now part of the Minnesota Timberwolves after the Memphis Grizzlies exchanged him for Jarrett Culver and Juancho Hernangomez. 

After being considered a crucial part of the Clippers roster, the 33-year-old is ready to start a new chapter in his career. This situation raised a lot of eyebrows around the league, with fans mocking Beverley for his recent moves. In contrast, others felt bad for him after leaving the Clips. 

Rob Perez perfectly described Bev's situation and the lack of loyalty around the league. The Twitter personality shared four screenshots of Beverley showing his excitement to stay with the Clippers, join a different team in Memphis, and then the Timberwolves. 

After Reggie Jackson re-signed with the Californians, Pat showed his excitement. After he was traded to Memphis, he celebrated the Grizzlies. Now that he's headed to Minnesota, his reaction was similar. 

As Perez said, it's rare to find loyalty in the NBA. At the end of the day, this is a business. Even if you want to stay your entire career in one place, it'll be hard to accomplish that unless you're somebody like Kobe Bryant or Dirk Nowitzki. 

Patrick is set to help the T-Wolves compete in the East next season and stay there as long as possible. This move can bring a lot of benefits for the team that is trying to make some noise with their young players.
