The NBA is heading towards trade season as there is only about a month left until the trade deadline, and the Minnesota Timberwolves should consider making a move for one of these players.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are an intriguing team to analyze as we draw closer towards the trade deadline.

They looked like buyers in the trade market after they jumped out to a 7-4 start and looked like a legitimate playoff team, but a rough month of December had the Wolves looking like sellers as rumors started to fly about dealing Robert Covington and the potential unhappiness of Karl-Anthony Towns.

Despite this rough stretch, Minnesota is still only a couple of games out of the playoff picture as it looks like no one else wants to stake a serious claim to the eight seed in the Western Conference.

The Timberwolves could be buyers or sellers at this point of the season, which opens up a ton of opportunities in the trade market as it starts to heat up.

These three upcoming targets would put Minnesota in the buyer category, but they may not have to give up a major asset in a couple of these potential moves.

Without further ado, let's examine a trio of reasonable trade targets that could improve their roster both now and for the future.
