Minnesota expressed interest to trade for Clint Capela


The Timberwolves are open to possibly landing Clint Capela in Minneapolis.

In the recent inside pass of The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Minnesota reportedly discussed acquiring a veteran center to their lineup, including the Hawks big man.

Capela has been a regular starting center of Atlanta for the previous two seasons. Following their 2021 deep Eastern Conference run, he inked a two-year, $45.9 million deal to stay with the club.

Upon signing the contract, his numbers have dipped this 2021-2022 campaign, averaging 11.1 points, 11.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.

As such, if the T-Wolves would manage to gain his service, he’ll potentially be placed at the center spot, with franchise cornerstone Karl-Anthony Towns moving as the stretch big man at the four.

Now being guided by a new leadership of Tim Connelly, the Wolves continue to be active this offseason moments.

On the other hand, the Hawks has been part of regular rumors from the previous weeks — committed to make necessary moves to be back reloaded for contention again.
