5 blockbuster trades for Timberwolves to capitalize on Anthony Edwards’ greatness: Dejounte Murray
This may be one of the more unrealistic deals on this list, but if the Atlanta Hawks wanted to really shake things up, they could form one of the best offensive tandems in the league with Trae Young and Karl-Anthony Towns.
Adding Towns to the roster would see the Hawks completely change directions, giving up on the tandem of Dejounte Murray and Young after just one season.
Rather than rolling out two ball-dominant players, they would pair Young with, they would pair him with one of the best offensive big men in the league.
The San Antonio Spurs would add Clint Capela with the idea of keeping Victor Wembanyama out of the post on the defensive end. Cacpela could guard the bigger-bodied centers while Wembanyama plays the four, which is currently the plan but with Zach Collins at the five.
For the Minnesota Timberwolves, this would seriously change their roster construction, and largely for the better, as they would be bringing in a top-notch facilitator.
Murray averaged double-digit assists in his final year in San Antonio, and with Anthony Edwards by his side, and the ball in his hands more, he could do that again for the Timberwolves.
Again, this trade seems a bit unrealistic considering how many moving pieces are involved, but it would be at least a bit intriguing for all teams involved.
