Speaking of job security, there are few players in Minnesota with less of it than Wendell Moore. Entering his second season, Moore has not done much to show he is a worthwhile piece for the Wolves in the long run.
There is still a lot to like about his game. Moore essentially projects as a positionless player that can do a variety of things on the floor. The aspects of his game that may intrigue the Timberwolves more than anything are his defensive instincts and playmaking upside.
But we know that potential can only get you so far in this league. While Moore struggled to earn playing time in his first season, there was hope that he could showcase what he has been working on at the 2023 Summer League.
But unfortunately, injuries caused him to miss the majority of the action in Las Vegas. There have been hints that the Timberwolves have more of a long-term plan for Josh Minott than for Wendell Moore, leaving many to question his future with the franchise.
That is not to suggest that Minnesota is actively looking to ship him out tomorrow. But if the Wolves are in negotiations at the trade deadline and a rival team requests a young player to get a deal done, Moore would be one of the top candidates to be included.
