Timberwolves reportedly trying hard to trade with Pelicans for No. 4 pick

The New Orleans Pelicans have reportedly made it clear that they are willing to trade the No. 4 overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft, and the Minnesota Timberwolves are a team said to have strong interest in making a deal.

The New York Times’ Marc Stein reported on Wednesday that Minnesota has been aggressive in trying to move up from No. 11 to No. 4.

Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and RJ Barrett are expected to be the first three picks in the draft, so after that, things will get interesting and the unpredictable can happen.

On top of their reported desire to trade up in the draft, the Timberwolves are said to be looking to trade Andrew Wiggins, though finding a taker for him may be difficult due to his contract.

Minnesota finished 36-46 last season, 11th in the West. The Pelicans’ willingness to trade the No. 4 pick signals their desire to assemble a contender for the upcoming season.
