With the Timberwolves firing Thibs, and Derrick Rose being on a one-year minimum deal while playing his best basketball in years, I feel like there’s a big chance he won’t be a Timberwolves player by the time next season rolls around.🌹
So, will the Timberwolves try to trade him now and potentially get something “valuable” in return, or will he walk as a FA this upcoming summer?🤘🏻
Who could/would trade for him?
Potential landing spots as an FA?

via Jackie Macmullan @espn. Derrick is the one who got Karl through that whole Butler mess," John Calipari said.
Rose was who counseled Towns to block out the noise and silence his critics with results on the court. When Towns finished a game having taken just 10 shots, Rose saddled up to his locker and chastised him to increase his production. Towns so responsive.
“He's so mindful of everything I've told him," Rose explains. "So many young guys are stubborn, hard-headed. They know everything. KAT's not like that. He listens."
“Forcing his will is not KAT's style," Rose says. "There's ways to communicate as a leader. I'm not going to talk to Taj Gibson the same way I talk to Gorgui [Dieng]. You have to put in your own personal time to learn each individual. I can say, 'I know this guy is a little sensitive to that,' and, 'I know that guy can take it,' so he ends up being the one I can yell at, 'Get your ass over here.”
"I wouldn't say Jimmy is missing that chip ... but maybe Jimmy has room to improve with that. He's young too. I get both sides. You've gotta talk to KAT a little different. Jimmy didn't really do that."

KG knows the Wolves are underachieving.. can they change that tonight against the Spurs?
It’s a doubleheader for the NBA. All eyes on the Western Conference. First up, it’s the @spurs vs @timberwolves. The Spurs are on the road visiting the T-Wolves. The Spurs are looking to clinch the season series, the T-Wolves are looking to even the series. The Spurs are eyeing their second straight road win while the T-Wolves are looking to right the wrong after being blown out by the 76ers. DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge have been spectacular for the Spurs. Who will carry the load for Minnesota as Karl Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins do not have great records vs Spurs. Pre-game coverage followed by tip-off begins at 8:00pm ET on ESPN.
Continuing on with the series, the best current player with ‘T’ as their second initial is Klay Thompson! Agree or disagree?
⬅️Swipe to see the past nine letters! Can you guess who ‘U’ will be?

In an article posted by @espn , @ukcoachcalipari explained how Derrick helped Karl get through the problems he faced with Jimmy Butler. Rose told KAT "We need more from you”.
"He's so mindful of everything I've told him, So many young guys are stubborn, hard-headed. They know everything. KAT's not like that. He listens."
After the Philadelphia loss, reporters claimed Rose and teammate Taj Gibson looked distraught and dressed quietly while politely begging to be left alone.
Rose also commented on his feelings about Coach Calipari, "With Cal, it's always la familia. If you play under him, it's a connection."
Then he added how his break in November 2017 helped him become more of a leader vocally. During his break he visited many mental health counselors. Rose learned that KAT isn’t used to the ruthless emotions in the NBA. KAT explained to him “ I was raised to treat everyone with respect.” Rose would later comment on the way Butler treated KAT, "Forcing his will is not KAT's style, there’s ways to communicate as a leader. I'm not going to talk to Taj Gibson the same way I talk to Gorgui. You have to put in your own personal time to learn each individual. I can say, 'I know this guy is a little sensitive to that,' and, 'I know that guy can take it,' so he ends up being the one I can yell at, 'Get your ass over here.”
Upon arriving to Minnesota, Rose quickly learned about Towns’ and Butler’s rivalry When I got here, I didn't hear anything about how they didn't like each other, I didn't see the tension, but you could feel it a little bit. Then we had a meeting, and that's when I realized how bad it was between them. After they aired it all out, there was actually some relief. I was very surprised by the approach KAT took. It was very mature, in a way. He let it go. He was getting criticism, his averages were low, but he didn't lash back." Thoughts 🤔
"Derrick is the one who got Karl through that whole Butler mess," Calipari said.
Rose was who counseled Towns to block out the noise and silence his critics with results on the court. When Towns finished a game having taken just 10 shots, Rose saddled up to his locker and chastised him to increase his production. "We need more from you," he told Towns bluntly.
Rose was pleasantly surprised to find Towns so responsive. "He's so mindful of everything I've told him," Rose explains. "So many young guys are stubborn, hard-headed. They know everything. KAT's not like that. He listens."
Derrick is really proving to be the leader of this team and I’m excited to see what’s in store for KAT in the future. 🌹

Team: Minnesota Timberwolves
Stadium: Target Center
Key Player: Karl Anthony-Towns
One To Watch: Derrick Rose
Head Coach: Ryan Saunders
This team has gone through it this season. At the beginning they were having real internal issues between their star players. This lead to Jimmy Butler refusing to play in order to try to force the team to trade him. He even managed to take the worst players on the team and beat the rest of the starting players to prove a point. Serious power move there. Now he's at the Philadelphia 76ers with Joel Embiid & Ben Simmons and he really seems to be enjoying life there. Evn with that there was a small hiccup, but I'll cover that in another post. The teams main player now, Karl Anthony-Towns is having a very good season. Averaging 22 points and 12 rebounds, he's leading his team in scoring, rebounds, blocks and is also top 5 in assists. The Timberwolves are trying to move on from the damage caused earlier on in the season and are doing a decent job of it. I'm most happy about the play of Derrick Rose. He's come back from Lord knows how many horrible injuries to have a great season. He's even had a 50 point game. Currently second in scoring got his team and I'm so happy to see him playing at a high consistent level again. If you don't know his story, read about it, very inspirational. One player that is disappointing many is Andrew Wiggins. Simply put, he should be a lot better than this by now. Especially considering how much he's being paid. Very underwhelming performances and no significant improvement in his play is all I can see from him right now. Saunders did manage to get a 40 point game out of him recently however, so maybe we'll see some improvement from him. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
