The Minnesota Timberwolves have been aggressive in the offseason, trading for Jimmy Butler and signing Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson. The Timberwolves aren't done making moves yet either, as they have interest in both Nick Young and Gerald Green.

That last tweet refers to Young, who is also drawing interest from the Warriors. Golden State also has more money in their mid-level exception to use. Green hasn't attracted much reported interest so far.

Green averaged only 5.6 points per game and shot 35.1 percent from 3-point range last year. Young put up 13.2 points per game and hit 40 percent of his 3s.Back to the Minnesota Timberwolves Newsfeed
