The Minnesota Timberwolves pursued a trade for Aaron Gordon this offseason, league sources tell Zach Lowe of ESPN.
The Wolves are thin at power forward with Juan Hernangomez and Jake Layman on the depth chart. Minnesota, however, is deep on the perimeter with D'Angelo Russell, Ricky Rubio, Anthony Edwards, Jarrett Culver, Josh Okogie and Malik Beasley.
Gordon has two seasons remaining on his contract at $18.1 million and down to $16.4 million in 21-22. Gordon's long-term future with the Orlando Magic has been uncertain due to Jonathan Isaac.
