Despite recently trading for Patrick Beverley, the Minnesota Timberwolves continue to be engaged with the Philadelphia 76ers on trading for Ben Simmons. The Wolves lack of win-now talent that they are willing to trade has been a stumbling block in the talks.

It's assumed that Minnesota would need to bring in a third team to deliver win-now players to Philadelphia. It's also possible that Patrick Beverley could be eventually be traded as part of a package for Simmons.
