Patrick Beverley has gotten a lot of credit for helping turnaround the Minnesota Timberwolves defense. After years of at the bottom of the league in defensive rating, the Wolves have been a top-10 defense this season.

Now, it looks like Minnesota and Beverley are open to keeping the good times rolling. The two sides have had cursory conversations on a contract extension. Beverley is playing out the final year of his contract this season and is eligible to ink an extension with the Wolves up to the end of the season.

The Timberwolves are also looking at the trade market, in attempt to buoy a playoff push. One player Minnesota appears to have interest in is Myles Turner of the Indiana Pacers.
